Cleaning

If you have one of these you may find cleaning it to be a bit of a hassle, there was a period of time when I was trying to clean the whole thing down in the sink which is just discouraging to say the least but I found recently the best way to clean after using.

What you need:
Your drip tray
Your plastic spatula
Paper towels

Note! If you have lost your drip tray. I have seen other tips that suggest making one out of aluminum foil which is a nice down and dirty solution.

If you've lost the plastic spatula you can get one of those Scotch Brite Dobies or something similar.

Turn the grill on and the timer up (this will take a little bit).

Before starting to clean make sure the grill has had a chance to get hot.

Open the grill (d'uh).

Now, the main thing here is that the thing will need to be hot to clean. Crust and oils are easier removed when the grill is hot. You can use a dobie or plastic spatula to remove caked on materials on the grill itself from both the upper and lower grill face. If you are using the dobie you would be best served make sure you are wetting it regularly with cold water to keep from burning your fingers.

You push the material on the lower grill towards you and your drip tray and on the upper grill just downward towards the lip that surrounds the upper grill.

Once you've gotten the most of the heavy stuff loose you move on to the next step.

You'll want to have a roll of paper towels handy, what you'll be doing is folding the paper towels into pads and then making sure they are nice and damp with cold water. As the paper towels gets warm just place it at the bottom of the grill to catch run off and use another new paper towel doused with cold water.

You follow the same technique of moving from top to bottom on the upper grilll and back to front on the lower changing paper towels as you go (as they get dirtier or hotter). It should be fairly short work though to get most of the schmutz off. Don't forget to fold the paper towel to get in between the tines at the front of the grill and be sure to wipe along the bottom lip on the front of the grill.

The last step will be to just take a dry paper towel and wipe off any excess moisture and be sure you've gotten everything.

While you are at it you can wet another paper towel and just wipe down the exterior and dry it.

I have a glasstop stove which is where I do it. You might want to do it on a dish rack drain though. You'll have to clean up a little bit of mess from the runoff when you're done but again most everything will be tossed anyway.

JUST WATCH YOUR FINGERS WHEN GETTING ANYWHERE CLOSE TO THE GRILLS THEMSELVES SO AS NOT TO BURN YOURSELF. CHANGE THE PAPER TOWELS (AND DAMPEN WITH COLD WATER) FREQUENTLY. IF YOU ARE REALLY WORRIED WEAR SOMETHING THAT WILL COVER YOUR HANDS.GRILLS ARE HOT, TAKE CARE AROUND THEM.

Would start with checking Battery, and the connections to the battery. Quick solve if you can get it to professionals, they can check condition of battery, whether charging system works. If you can do a bit of diy, check voltage directly on battery, should be around 13 v. sometimes there can be a bit of build up on the - pole of battery, boil some water with baking soda, and pour over corroded (white build up on negative pole), that should better connection and perhaps solve the immediate hassle . But that should also indicate that connection needs to be cleaned properly, otherwise same will happen again

1998 Chevrolet C3500 dies randomly when driving down the road - uphill, downhill or flat surfaces. Typically doesn't happen when it's cold. Sometimes it starts back up and sometimes it doesn't. When the engine dies, the Security,brake,anti-lock and service engine lights all come on. Sometimes you hear a clicking under the dash. A new ignition switch was just installed and diagnostics done with no results???


U have an intermittent electrical connection causing the hassle. Check and clean all wiring junctions, etc. Also work the connections by sliding them in and out many times to remove any oxidation. U have to remember that a car's electrical system is low voltage and the slightest bit of corrosion can screw things up - example is dirty battery terminal wires with a new battery. Car will not crank but clean the terminals and away you go!!!!!!!!!!!!

Freezer has had ice film on bottom for some time, leaks down into the frig, unit began making a periodic clicking noise last night, woke up this morning to defrosted food in freezer. Cleaned coils, unplugged for 1/2 hour & when started, blowing air into freezer doesn't seem very cold. Could this be a freon issue or something else?


Just by cleaning the coils and the keeping it shutdown should not have any effect on the freon in the compressor. It is only used to cool down the coils so that the air blows over them is also made cold. Please keep it running for a while and check if the problem persists. There is a chance that the air is first cooling down the ducts in the refrigerator and then afterwards the whole inner body. That can warm down the air a bit. If the problem persists, this can be a freon issue.

Smoke and fumes coming from oven


Sounds like you need to clean the whole oven as old grease and spillages will keep on burning and smoking.
