Spill into oven vents

I had a pot boil over and some of the water spilled over the front of the cooktop (which has almost no lip to it). The water dribbed into the oven vents that are located on the top front of the oven door. Then the water streaked all the way between the inside and outside glass panels. As far as I can tell, there is no way to get inside the door to clean this and it left three obvious water streaks there. Any ideas?

Re: Spill into oven vents

The best way to clean the inner glass is to remove the door from the oven. With the door in the broil open position (first stop) pull up for about 2 inches until the hinge brackets are released from their stops. Close the door all you can and lift the door off the hinges. Lay the door on a padded surface and remove the 4 screws on the bottom. The outside glass will now slide out of its rail and you can clean the inside. To install just reverse the process. If you take your time and observe, it's not that bad of a back.

How do I properly operate the Turbo Boil on my new Kenmore range?

Turboboil is a feature offered on a number of Kenmore electric ranges and cooktops. Without you model number it's hard to get into specifics - but turboboil is a special, high wattage heating element that delivers up to 3KW of energy to a specific heater on the cooktop. If I understand correctly, you would only use this setting when you wish to bring water to a boil in the shortest period of time possible - then change to a normal burner heat setting to maintain the temperature of the water in the pot.

Remember, an electric heat element is turned "full on" and "full off" as needed to maintain temperature (unlike a dimmer knob controls a light bulb). The turbo boil turns on a "double heater" to rapidly heat the water - after water reaches 212 degrees, it can not be heated any further (it turns into steam) so you should switch to a normal burner mode from that point forward.

GE Range flashing locked after boil over

GE Electric range with front controls. I had a pot boil over and spill over the front of the range, some water got on the membrane key panel. But I’m assuming some went behind the panel on to the control board. The LOCKED button started to flash randomly and the electric door latch was engaging and disengaging also randomly. Unplugging the unit and looking for any type of reset button did not help. The control board which is mounted behind the membrane panel got wet and was causing a short. Luckily it survived. I fixed it by removing the four stove knobs, four retaining plastic nuts that are mounted behind the knobs, and then the four (2 and 2 outer most) 1/4” bolts that hold the main panel on. I dried out the electric front door switch and the electric panel with hairdryer for 10 minutes. Plugged it back in and its all fixed. . No so good design to allow this to happen so easily so as I assembled it back together I put silicone around the membrane panel in hopes of preventing this from reoccurring.

Has anyone else had a serious problem with the electrical wiring in their Maytag Gemini Gas Range? Without using the stove, the ignitors started firing and then stopped when I turned all the burners on....

Same problem here - and I have read about others with this problem. Usually blamed on moisture getting into the control unit ( which is under the backmost burner knob). I did not have a spill on the cooktop, nor was I "over zealous" cleaning. Looks like a bad design. Waiting to hear from the technician how much THIS is going to cost me...

What are you using to clean the stove? Only cleaners made for ceran type tops should be used according to directions. Do not use enamel coated pans or glass pans on your cooktop.If you have a boil over, turn off the burner and change to a different burner immediately. Clean up the spill completely before cooking on that burner again. Use a flat edge razor to clean tough residue. Your cooktop will look new for years to come, even with heavy use.

As far as the scratch, don't use abrasive cleaners on the top and only use pots and pans with flat bottoms. If you do use cast iron pans, never scoot them around on the top.

Liquid spilled into the cooktop (gas with electrice ignition) and now the igniter doesn't work.

If it was clear liquid, after a day or so your cooktop igniters should start working again. If it was a gooey spill you may need to gently clean them. They will not work until they are very dry.

Frigidaire double oven - stove top oven had a spill. The spill went through the bottom oven's door vents and is now in between the glass and I cannot get to it to clean. How can I get this glass clean?

I had a similar problem with a spill running into the vent and between the glass. I had to take the door apart clean it and then put it back together. It sounds hard, but it was just a few screws and a little time.

Water on cooktop leaked into control panel

Sounds like you got water into the touchpad. If so there is no easy way to dry it out. It might dry itself out but you might up having to buy a new one.
