Hi there.

I have brand new frigidaire built-In-Range. I think that the oven is not working properly or was incorrectly installed. When using oven, the smoke is coming out when you open it and then my fire alarm goes off every time because of too much smoke. Please help. Thank you

** When using oven, the smoke is coming out when you open it **

The elements may be covered with an oil residue from the manufacture process. The installation or usage instructions will often say to let the elements get hot to burn off any residual materials before using the oven for actual cooking.

The resulting smoking would likely set off any smoke detectors if in close proximity but should be short lived.

If you have any doubts, discontinue use, disconnect power from the appliance and call a Frigidaire factory authorized service depot to look into it for you.
