Rat Nest in oven insulation

We removed a rat nest from our oven insulation - just took it all apart , took out all insulation , sprayed and cleaned all surfaced in side and out . Now it has no insulation , but oven works. Do you think this is safe to use ?

    We have the same problem in our Kenmore gas stove (purchased 9/07 - so we don't really want to have to replace it.) We are going to take all of the "polluted" insulation out this weekend, and we are looking for information about how to put it back in. Any advice? We are very handy DIY-types.

No the insulation must be replaced . the insulation makes the oven cycle on and off less frequently and also keeps the exposed metal surfaces cooler.

I have a indesit 90cm duel fuel cooker can some one tell me how to dimantle the oven door so i can clean in between the two pieces of glass

first you need to remove the door from the oven, Open the door fully and on the hinges you will see a little flap bit on each hinge, flip them over so they lock the hinges open.
Left the door up slightly and you will be able to remove the door.
Place the door on a soft surface handle side down and remove the screws around the edges, You will see how it is held together and be able to finish taking it apart.
When putting it back together make sure the insulating material and the rubber seals are located correctly.

Put new starter on and battery lights won't come on nor will the car turn over. some rats build a nest in the engine compartment, so i do know how to get the car to start. help me please.

Have you put a new battery in the car? If so and it still won't start, try retracing the wires under the hood to be sure the rats haven't chewed through any of them!

removal of the blower motor is quite easy. you can access it from the passenger foot area. remove the glove box by removing the limit rod screw and squeezing the sides of the glove box together to remove. You can now better visualize the area. remove a few plastic clips that hold an electronics shelf and move it aside. remove the electrical connection to the blower ( take note of orientation of plug so that you put the motor back in the correct position) remove three screws that hold the blower in place. Pull blower assembly down. clean or replace blower. sells a complete blower and fan assembly for very little $.

Yes you can hire a tech or do this job yourself.
Remove the door and place it on a large flat surface.
Remove the screws around the edge of the frame and separate the 2 pieces.
Clean away.
Re-align the 2 halves and replace the screws.
