Why is my oven dripping a black liquid?

Asked by lilikoi (10028 points ) April 4th, 2010

A black liquid is dripping in the oven. It is dripping from what looks like a black stalactite. It is at least stalactite in its shape, and it is black in color. It is located adjacent or nearly adjacent to one of the connections/supports of the top heating element to the oven. This is an old electric oven. What is it? And how did it get there?

Hehe. Looking at the residue, it might be plastic melting. It must be something melting…

Does it smell funny? If it does, that’s not good. It probably isn’t good anyways. How old is it?

someone spilled something on it or in the oven and its trapped somewhere where theres a slow leak…. ovens don`t have anything that could leak…theres no parts that are filled with any liquids

Maybe it’s the black ooze the appeared out of people’s foreheads on “The Fifth Element”
