    I have a cannon Carrick gas cooker. Whilst moving things around in my kitchen a plastic container dropped inside the vent at the back of the cooker. Intending to remove this later I went out but forgot about it and only realised what the horrendous smell was after 2 uses of the oven.
    Can anyone explain if I can remove side panels to access this area. My husband checked out the back panel but thought it looked like there were electrics etc Which we wouldn't like to disturb.

    I really don't want to risk my kids breathing the horrid smell from the burning plastic as the baby is only 7 months so will not use oven at the moment.

    Please help

    Sounds like you may have dropped it into the oven flue, not familiar with that particular model but I assume not accessible via the side panel. If it is the flue you will require a qualified engineer to delve that deep into the appliance. That may well be a sealed unit it might not be economic to replace/ repair the part.
    Try Cannon customer service to see if they can confirm what the "hole" it went into is.

    I suspect they will be the only people that would be interested in sorting it out too, few gas engineers are interested in cooker repairs these days I'm afraid.
    C Heating is more lucrative and spares much easier to get.
