Default what to do - my food tastes like plastic

I just moved into a new apartment, and I've got an electric oven (oh, how I miss you, gas!). I've tried to cook several things in it and so far everything I've made comes out tasting like plastic.

I toasted a bagel and it tastes like plastic, I heated up some chik'n nuggets and they tasted like plastic, I roasted potatoes and they tasted like plastic. And the weirdest thing of all is that everything tastes like the SAME kind of plastic.

It's very strange and this has never happened to me before and I have no idea what to do. Any ideas?

Is the oven new? Maybe it's just off-gasing and will get better with a few more uses.

If not, I'd probably run it through a self-clean (assuming it's self-cleaning...if not, then I'd run it on the highest temp for a few hours and see if that burns off the bad taste.)

The oven looks pretty old to me. It's a "Brown" and I've never heard of that brand. Actually, I looked it up and the oven looks exactly like this:http://www.universal-akb.com/20brelraem1.html

Horrible, isn't it?

OMG, it doesn't self-clean! Whoever heard of that?! Thanks for the suggestions, RCW. I'll try putting it on the highest temp setting for a while then. Hopefully, it doesn't blow up

did you check to see if there was plastic in there ? lol
j/k a few years ago someone made pizza and left the plastic on and this reminded me of it and made me chuckle . sorry
i have no suggestions, maybe clean it with that oven spray thing they use to have back in the day . GL
