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.

Drivers side has no heat only have it on passenger side in an 02 trailblazer, had actuator replaced

May be a rodent nest in the hvac system blocking that side, look under the hood into the air intake, this will be on the passenger side under the cowl cover just below the windshield, if you see lots of debris you may have a mouse or rat problem.

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!

My raypak versa spa heater was making a loud sound when igniting (combustion) and now it wont do anything it seems like there is not any power to the unit but I know there is power and spa controller is...

You may have spider web's in your gas orfaces or rat nest's on your heater tray. The rat nest will be easy to see. But with the spider web's you will have to remove the orfaces from the gas manifold. Then clear with a wire as they are very small. You will need to shut all the power off to the heater to reset so it will start. Their may also be a fuse link or wax switch that guards against roll out of flame. This melts the wax if the heat gets to be enough hurt controls, and will be found on the bottom front of the heater. For your heater uou will need to check your book on the heater.
