Question about Air Conditioners

1 Answer

There are burnt on grease stains on my new ceramic glass kitchenaid cooktop on one burner. I've tried cooktop magic and it did remove some, but not all, stains. A razor was recommended to remove the stains, but I am afraid that it will scratch the surface. I was told that this will not scratch it.

    Thank you for your suggestion. It has proven to be a successful one. I would like to know if I can ruin the round silver coils that mark the range if I use the razor to clean up the burnt grease on them. Thank you

    I have a new kitchenaid oven and the glass on the inside of the door needs to be cleaned. The instruction booklet addresses cleaning the outside of the door, but not the inside, except, ofcourse, to use the self cleaning mode. At this point, the entire oven does not need cleaning, but can I use a glass cleaner on the inside door, or just soap and water. I don't want to ruin anything.Thank you. Your suggestions so far for different problems have proven to be very successful.

    Do you think that I can use Windex or Glass Plus?

Use the razor push only in one direction this will remove the stain. Ceran is a very resiliant material and you will not scratch it but if you leave gunk on the burner and repeatedly cook on it the stain will become permanant and you also risk pitting the glass. Pitting is pock marks in the glass that are permanant. Pitting is most commonly produced when starch or sugars are left on a burner but is possible with other spills. Good Luck.

    I am not clear but I think you mean the circles that mark the burners all part of the glass top if this is correct then yes you can use the same process to clean it. Glad I could help and thank you for the rating.

  • diane trott Jan 11, 2009

    you can use what you choose to clean it as long as you rinse toroughly. Chemicals and heat do not always cooperate! if the stains on the glass are stubborn use your razor blade maybe a non abrasive cleanser like soft scrub. I work in an appliance store but I clean houses on my days off so your questions are right up my alleys! Thank you, and if there is anything else I will do my best to help!

    sure as long as you rinse it well.

My adp cuhn-60a-2 sparks an lights burner ok, burns for only few seconds an shuts down burner, repeats this three times an whole unit shuts down?

You are describing the typical issue for a problem in the 'flame rectification' circuit. Turn the powere off. Find the flame sensor, it will be on the opposite side of the furnace from the spark ignition device. Carefully remove the sensor and clean with fine sandpaper, then clean the wire connector on the end of it if so equipped, then follow that wire all the way to the circuit board, remove the wire connection and clean it and reinstall. Many times that solves the issue.

Some systems utilize the spark ignition electrode as its own flame sensor. IF there is no separate flame sensor, perform the above task on the ignition device instead. Be careful NOT to bend the probe, crack the ceramic insulator or reinstall it malaligned. Its location in the pilot flame is critical. Slight relocation by improper handling will render it unable to ignite the pilot gas.

There may be another issue as there are many things that cause ignition lockout, but this is the first thing to do to eliminate the situation you've described.

If you are unsure of performing this and ANY minor maintenance to a gas fired appliance, abandon the idea and call a qualified service tech to proceed.

Open rollout or open fuse on Goodman

the fuse is located in the circuit board in the blower compartment and the roll-out is located in the burner section and can be a reset-able switch style or the one time fuse link style which is a a small silver cylinder and is mounted in a ceramic piece and is held in with one screw. Both of these are mounted around the opening of the your burner assembly near the opening. This will be near the area of the gas valve.

Flam goes on but turns right off

Units for the last 20 years have been using a flame sensor, the sensor is a steel rod that is insulated in ceramic with a single wire located in the burner compartment either with the pilot assembly (if provided) or opposite side of burners from pilot or ignition system which ever it using. The sensor can be removed and cleaned with a piece of sand paper or steel wool then should work OK.
The sensor is a safety device to assure that all the burners are on.

Just moved into this house, with a warnock hersey gas fire wh3990 removed the glass for cleaning now it won't come on .I think I disturbed the log placement ,it has a temperature control but even...

When you replaced the glass, you may have not made contact with the glass safety removal switch. In which case, other than the pilot, nothing else will work. When you cleaned the glass, I hope you didn't use a commercial glass cleaner. As they have ammonia in them and it leaves an invisible residue on the glass. When it heats up the residue will turn white and stay on the interior of the glass. If you did use a commercial glass cleaner, remove the glass (which you're going to have to do anyway) and clean it with a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water. Then dry the glass thoroughly with paper towels.

The glass safety removal switch is generally at the bottom of the firebox opening right under the glass, In fact the glass will rest on it. Once everything is cleaned (if necessary) and reassembled. Be sure that after the pilot is lit, the gas control knob is turned to ON. If you have a wall switch that tunrs the burner ON & Off, it will now take over.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hi you will need to replace the thermocouple, which is in the burner chamber lower left side. You will probably find that the end has burnt through. The control system is trying to establish the pilot light and will not stop the clicking until a signal is returned through the pilot flame to confirm the flames existence. Col R.

I have a wood burning fireplace and i am trying to find out how to work the side and top damper and vent to heat my home

top damper wide open and bottom damper wide open will burn very hot but too fast if you close the top vent off it will smoke in the house the idea is not to smoke the house but once you have a good fire lit with hot cinders to cut back on the top to ceep some heat in cut back on the bottom to burn slower if this is a metal box wood burner it should heat great if it is a standard fireplace with a glass door you need to be careful how close the flame is to the glass it can break. glass front fireplaces don't heat as well as an insert wood burner let me know if this is uesful or any more assistance needed thank you
