I own a microwave: model # jes636wk01 There is a plastic film covering the wire mess on the inside of the door. Will the microwave operate safely if the film is damaged or removed?

yes. It is there to protect the glass from food splatters It is the panel with the million holes that controls the micro waves I would not remove it but have it replaced if damaged.

I have dried on grease stains on the bottom of my pots and also there is a whitish colored film that remains after the pots are washed and dried. I need to know how to clean them.

Spray Oven Cleaner all over stains, SEAL inside plastic garbage bag, leave bag for 2 days, wash pans with scrubber pad, stains should be soft and come off with a little rubbing.

I just installed a new MH1150XMB and the door is cloudy lookinh. There is a plastic film over the inside of the door, does this need to be removed?

Normally, no. That protects the metal mesh which blocks microwave energy from getting out the door.

Check your owner's manual.

If you do need to replace that clear cover, or any other door parts, etc., you can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Condesation stains inside door

The door is not an airtight unit. Moisture can and does get between the panels. Nothing to do outside of disassembling the door and cleaning. Not so easy to do.

I would like to know how to clean the inside of my microwave,the wrong cup was put in,and it caught on fire ,and I can't get smoke stain out. Thank you,Molly Dickerson

The smoke stain is almost impossible to remove as smoke tends to get in the pigment of the paint.

If there's a burn smell, you can try simmering a lemon juice and water mixture for several minutes in the microwave. You can also set a plate of charcoal briquettes inside and leave the door closed overnight (DON'T turn the microwave on - just let it sit). Keep the charcoal inside when not using the microwave and it will absorb a lot of the odor.

Popcorn stain in Microwave

Uhhhmmm, paint? Inside a microwave? YUCK.... that would make food taste like paint.

The yellow stain from microwave able popcorn is most likely a permanant issue. I have heard of the vinegar water, bleach etc working, but never had it work for me.

I don't recommend you painting the inside of a microwave. Some paint is flammable. Almost all paints are toxic.

Can't locate the "protective film to prevent possible scratches during transport. This film must be removed before using the oven for the first time" We purchased the unit today.

The protective film is usually covering the glass door. If it's not there and the glass is still in good shape, no problem... just install the microwave and you're in action!!

If you think the window is stained, you ought to see the rest of the inside! Wife is probably right. (wink, wink, nod, nod)
Actually, you can take the cover off, remove the front panel without much effort and clean everything and get a lot more life out of it. Microwaves usually die because of heat related problems caused by buildup of yuck on the guts.
Hope Ya Make your Wife Happy!
