Deep Cleaning techniques for GE spacemaker Convection microwave

We have just returned to our home after 2 years to stay and the tenants must have never even wiped the microwave after one use. The entire inside is covered in light brown/rust colored grease film that I cannot get off. The user manual clearly states to AVOID professional oven cleaners, abrasive cleaners and the like. Soapy water did nothing. Vinegar helped a little, but still horrible considering was given to them in new condition. Any advice on how to really clean out the entire inside without damaging the microwave/oven functionality or interior coating?

Try simple green. It is great at eating through grease. It may take a few times but it works. It is biodegardable. I used it at one of my old jobs for cleaning grease off of glass and use it in my home as well.

Microwave oven just quit. Have checked fuse and plug. Have had no earlier problems. Do these ovens just ''wear out''? It is 8 years old. It is a GE Spacemaker. (November 2002) GE Spacemaker Serial...


yes they wear out. usally the first part to quit is the unit inside that creates the microwaves called the "magnetron" over time they will wear out, and so will the circuitry that runs the entire microwave, some will last 8 years like yours, some only a year or 2. 8 years is pretty good for the life of a microwave. but yea, its time to get yourself a new one. good luck to you

GE Spacemaker Microwave lights flicker on then off


There must be a short in the wiring between the bulb sockets and the power supply or control board. Otherwise the short may be in the bulb sockets themselves.
I would test the connections to make sure the wires aren't loose and all solder joints are tight. If all wires look good, and bulb sockets are tight, then the problem may be faulty capacitor
