Miele oven fireworks
I'm not sure what happened, but our 7-year-old Miele oven was running with a bread stone on one shelf and a dutch oven on the other shelf when it suddenly started making a loud noise. When I turned around I saw fireworks behind the window. Lots of sparking and smoke.
It's power went out (I assume the breaker tripped - we haven't gone out to check because we aren't going to do anything with it until an appliance tech gets out here and it seems safer to leave it off).
Everything inside was covered with a fine dark grey powder and there was lots of smoke. It wiped off the dutch oven except for one spot at the back so I think the problem was in the convection fan heating element area. I think we are going to have to discard the pizza stone as who knows what was in that dust and I don't think we can be assured of cleaning it well enough.
The baguette on the pizza stone was discarded of course.
Has anyone else heard of this sort of thing happening?
Do you think it can be fixed or should we start shopping for something to replace it?
