SOURCE: frameless shower door sticking to the opposite wall when closing

you can fix this problem by loostening the clamp screw and putting locktite sealer(you can purchase locktite from hd or lowes locktite is not the only product you can call a glass supplier and as for recommendation) Be sure to read the directions on the tube I use it to seal joints on refrigeration threaded parts. Make sure it will adhere to glass and metal also review the clean up solvent when you do this place a wood wedge at the bottom of the glass dooor and the threashold to support he weight until the sealer driese

Steps

1 Place wood wedge/block under door where non hinged side meets wall


2 losten top hinge(inspect bottom hinge to make sure it is snug and the glass dor is all the way into the hinge

3 You may have to remove the top hinge completely to get enough of the locktite on the metal and glass place the locktite on the hinge flat plate and the glass

4 recheck gap where door meets wall( I sometimes use paint stirs(wood) as shims to keep space between door and wall consistent

5 tighten top inge screws( you can put locktite on the screw threas also

6 Clean excess locktite and wait suggested time by instructions on tube


Good Luck!

SOURCE: Soap scum on shower doors

We definitely want to stay away from any cleaning products that have an abrasive. Your local grocery or department store will have products specifically for cleaning soap scum. Some products will work better than others depending on the type of mineral content in your water. The best product is one where you don't have to do an excessive amount of scrubbing to remove the hard water and soap scum stains. Be sure to follow the manufacturers instructions for the best results. Again depending on the mineral content of your water you may have to try a few different products until you find one that works the way you want it to. There are also products you can purchase that you would spray onto the glass after a shower to prohibit the buildup of soap scum.

I need to change the door on my Kenmore microwave oven


1.Unplug the microwave and set it on a table or workbench. If you have a built-in microwave, you may have to remove some mounting screws or retention clips to get the microwave out of the support bracket. Open the door and take out the glass tray.

2.Pry off a corner of the plastic panel on the inside of the door with a screwdriver or butter knife. Once it is loose, work the screwdriver or knife all the way around the glass and remove the panel.

3.Ask someone to hold the microwave door as you disconnect it from the hinges. Depending on the design of your microwave door, you may have to remove a set of screws or slide a pin out of the hinge to release the door. Remove and discard the old door.

4.Have your assistant hold the replacement door up to the hinges. Attach the door to the hinges by reversing the previous step. Snap the plastic inner panel into place around the glass. Move the microwave back to its original location. Insert and tighten the necessary mounting screws if you are working on a built-in microwave. Set the glass tray back inside the microwave and close the door.
