How do I clean my GE Advantium Microwave oven?

The manual says to wipe clean with soap and water, but that just isn't doing the job. I have baked on grease that won't budge. Any ideas?
Help!

    I do not know how to clean my Advantium 120 General Electric Oven.
    The problem is that I have baked in the oven and the results after baking in the microwave oven are the same as in baking in any oven. It is completely stained on all sides from baking. This does not come off with soap and water. Can you use Easy-Off in the microwave oven? I have not been successful in finding an answer to this problem, but every time I bake in my microwave oven it just keeps getting worse. I want to make my oven clean again, it is embarrassing for anyone else to look in and use my oven when I have guests. Please respond asap. thanks for your assistance. My email address is d_suski@verizon.net. Thanks, Ellen Suski

    I can't find an answer as to how to clean the oven. Plain soap and water do not work. I don't want to ruin anything by using something I shouldn't. Advise me what to use.

    Our one big disappointment in our 2nd GE Advantium is that it is impossible to clean. It is embarassing to have anyone come to our home and see our wonderful new advantium that looks 10 years old inside. Help! Note that the first one we had did NOT have this issue and we had it for 10 years! Donna

How do I clean the stainless steel interior of my electrolux icon microwave


Hello - Interior cleaning after convection, mix or broil cooking:


Spatters may occur because of moisture and grease. Wash immediately after use with hot, soapy water. Rinse and polish dry. Harder to remove spatters may occur if oven is not thoroughly cleaned or if there is long time/high temperature cooking. If so, you may wish to purchase an oven cleaner pad with liquid cleaner within it-not a soap filled steel pad-for use on stainlessor porcelain surfaces. Follow manufacturer's directions carefully and be especially cautious not to get any of the liquid cleaner in the perforations on the wall or ceiling or any door surfaces. Rinse thoroughly and polish dry. After cleaning the interior thoroughly, residual grease may be removed from the interior ducts and heater by simply operating the oven on 450 F for 20 minutes without food. Ventilate the room if necessary.


Interior cleaning after microwave cooking:


Cleaning is easy because no heat is generated to the interior surfaces; therefore, there is no baking and setting of spills or spattering. To clean the interior surfaces, wipe with a soft cloth and warm water. DO NOT USE ABRASIVE OR HARSH CLEANERS OR SCOURING PADS. For heavier soil, use baking soda or a mild soap; rinse thoroughly with hot water. NEVER SPRAY OVEN CLEANERS DIRECTLY ONTO ANY PART OF THE CONVECTION MICROWAVE OVEN.

How to clean GE Advantium???


Get a stainless steel "brillo pad" at the grocery store.

When you get home ... put a microwave safe container with water inside it ... in the oven. do not heat for more than 2 minutes!!!!! The resultant steam will soften the gunk. Use the stainless steel cleaner pad gently to remove the goop.

I hope this helps you

Built up grease in oven


I've found the best way to get grease to loosen up in any oven is to place a glass or coffee cup of undiluted ammonia in the oven overnight. The ammonia vapors attack the grease, softening it. The next day:

  1. remove the ammonia
  2. mix it with a 2 cups of water
  3. wear protective gloves
  4. using a non-abrasive cloth or sponge wipe the grease off the surfaces.
  5. switch to clean water only, wipe the oven one last time to remove the ammonia residue left by the cleaning.

Deep hard core cleaning


From GEAppliances.com: Microwave - Cleaning Recommendations To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug the microwave from the power supply before attempting any maintenance or cleaning. Spills and spatters clean up easily with a damp, soapy paper towel or sponge. It is best to clean soil as soon as it appears. Baking soda and water may also be used. If the food has cooked onto the interior, heat one cup of water on full power for three minutes. The heat and steam help to soften the food. After the three minutes, allow five additional minutes stand time then clean as usual. A non-abrasive scrubbing pad cleaner works well for stubborn stains. You may use mild dish washing liquid or cleaners specifically listed for cleaning interiors of microwave ovens such as MicroBryte® (wx10x3030) or Microwave Oven Magic®. We do not recommend using other detergent based cleaners because they can cause the plastic parts to crack. You may purchase microwave interior cleaner by calling our parts department at 1-800-626-2002, on-line from GE Parts or from your local grocer. For stainless steel interiors of microwave/convection models, we recommend a plastic, soap-filled scouring pad. Rubbing gently with this pad will help remove soil. For the door surfaces (both interior and exterior) We recommend you use only mild, non-abrasive soaps, or detergents applied with a sponge, or soft cloth. For the control panel Wipe with a soft, damp cloth. Dry immediately with a soft cloth. Do not spray any solution directly onto the controls Important: Commercial Oven Cleaners, abrasive cleaners, or cleaners containing ammonia or bleach (can make the plastic brittle) should not be used on any part of the microwave. -- From me - Maybe local restaurants in your area would have some tips? Otherwise, try a Google search for keywords: cleaning stainless steel oven
