Oven trouble when braising

ateaktree | Feb 28, 201412:19 PM

So I have a problem which I have not been able to find referenced by anyone else. I have an electric oven and when I braise using a liquid with a significant alcohol content (i.e. wine) my oven door will pop open whenever the oven coils cycle on. I can only assume that the alcohol vapor is collecting in the oven and igniting briefly when the coils become hot.
Has anyone ever experienced this? Is it dangerous? Is there anything I can do the prevent it?
