WHITE FILM INSIDE OVEN

My 86 year old mother had a larges casarole splatter all over the inside of the oven. She used the sel-cleaning unit. Now there is a white like film which seems to be baked inside. I've tried oven cleaner and brillo pads at they won't even come close to touching it. Any clue?

Your mom may have used a non-self cleaning cleaner to try and clean this oven in the past. you wont have much luck getting rid of the stain but using cleaners like easy-off or mr muscle may help you reduce the staining.
it could also be that an element has shorted out and "burned" the surface of the oven. if the oven doesnt heat properly then check the elements for a rough or burnt out area. that does happen but its probably just going to be stained as it sounds like you have tried to do the cleaning.
p.s. i like mr muscle better then easy-off.

The inside of my self cleaning smooth top range


Using any kind of cleaning solution can cause the self-clean catalytic coating to be damaged. The glass itself isn't sensitive but don't apply anything like oven cleaner or other caustic cleaner to any of the other surfaces unless your owner's guide specifically permits it. On the glass, I have on occasion used a new single-edge razor blade to remove any heavy, baked on splatters and then conventonal glass cleaner to finish.

Removed splatter shield


The parts can be ordered from the Panasonic authorized parts rep. You have to contact Panasonic for details.

I strongly recommend to have any work on a microwave oven done professionaly. There are radiation leakage issues if the door is not re-assembled properly. After doing any service the microwave oven must be tested for radiation leaks. I doubt that you have the radiation testing equipment to make sure that there are no leaks.

It sounds like it's not cleaning long enough-anything less then four hours just burns stuff on- or it's not getting hot enough. I would try Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on the splatter. It cleans burnt on stuff off mine great.
