Best way is a butter knife ...you run it alongthe out side edge. the cover can be pried and bowed out a little with out bending it. Once out soak in hot water with dawn dish soap to clean all parts...(not the filter)

The fan catches when it is on and makes loud grinding noises


With the stove off, remove the back wall cover for the fan. Remove fan, clean and lubricate, if needed. Install fan after cleaning. Bend back wall cover so that it is bowed away from fan, if needed. and install.

WHAT DOES ER2 CODE MEAN ON PELLET STOVE


Which pellet stove do you have? A lot of pellet stoves have a part inside called a Draft Flow Switch the size of your palm and hook to the Draft Flow Switch is a Draft silicone hose and this will get clogged with debris you will need to look at your diagram to see if you have that on your stove. If you do you will need to "gingerly take off the hose and blow through it. and re connected to the draft flow Switch. After sometime the hoses become brittle. Another thing to look at is the exhaust at the back of the stove cleaned out and you are getting your pellet stove cleaned out by a chimney sweep.

The fan motor works, but is not venting the room


It might take some work, but you should be able to get at the exhaust vent by removing the grill, light fixture and fan. Might be best to try and find where it is vented to, hopefully an outside area. If you can, there are some small over the counter type of things you can use to try and clean the vent. One is a window brush that is on a long pole, found in the window cleaning area of the Home Depot. This is a soft brush that will not damage (famous last words) the exhaust vent. There is also a flapper door of sorts that closes at the fan when the fan is not running. Might be that the flapper is stuck in the closed position. Good luck!!

My dryer heats,tumbles,but takes several cycles to dry a load(small).Not much air coming out of vent and have cleaned vent out.Any ideas?


The fan that pulls the hot air through the dryer and pushes the exhaust out through the vent hose is plugged with lint. You will want to remove the cover on the fan and manually clean the fan out. I had the same problem with my dryer, I was astounded by the amount of lint that was trapped in the fan.
Also look inside the cloths drum on the back wall and make certain the hole in that wall are not clogged with lint also. Use a flash light and make sure the hole are perfectly clean.
Good luck, clean it all out and let me know.

Rust colored spots appearing between the glass panels in the door of our over the stove Microwave, model #MH6140XKQ


You first want to be sure your hood vent exhaust fan is working properly, that your grease filters are not clogged, that your charcoal filter (if equipped) is being changed every 6 months or whatever the owner's manual recommends, and that your exhaust duct work and outlet are not blocked.

You can also download the installation instructions from the link above and they will help you in checking the ducts and outlet.

If they're all okay, to prevent future moisture buildup, I recommend wiping the condensation off the walls and inner door surfaces after cooking, and leaving the door open a while to help it dry out further.

Plus I always recommend that you use the hood exhaust vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and the door panels.

Once troubleshooting and prevention are covered, then you can clean and repair the inner door surfaces.

You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screw(s) you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

If the rust is bad, the area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

If the wire mesh screen is damaged beyond just surface rust, it will have to be replaced, as it prevents microwave leakage, which can result in arcing or a fire.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I don't have any suction


finish cleaning, through the whole air path

usually, by the time that a large clog has built up in the narrow neck behind the brushes,
that is easy to find when the cover plate is removed,
some has also got into the fan impeller,
not so easy to see
and restricts suction
the fan housing is held on the front of the fan & motor with clips, it disassembles easily and the lint and such can be flicked out of the impeller
then the exhaust of the motor to the bag can be likewise cleaned

Not heating also exhaust fan on dryer is not woeking screen show a problem has been detected with the model selection connection


Hello chuhunghuang
Welcome

You said, your not heating also exhaust fan on dryer is not working screen show a problem has been detected with the model selection connection

Sometimes this can happen when the vent line is clogged.


1. Check if the lint filter is full and needs to be cleaned.
Try this first.
2. Then check if the outside screen covering the exhaust vent if this is even half blocked
with lint there will be no heat! This screen is to keep small animals out!
Try checking this and if it is clogged or the spring loaded door is stuck closed.
Try to clean the lint out of the corners of the flap door,
and or remove the screen permanently!
NO ANIMALS LIKE TO GET BURNT,IT'S HOT IN THAT TUBE! They sense this and stay clear.
It is 2 years that mine is off and all is fine.
Let me know how it goes!
Bless You huuum

My dryer is tumbling but not blowing air hot nor cold


then you would have a broken fan blade.

because the motor that turns the drum is also the motor that turns the fan blade to blow the air.

open the rear portion of the dryer and you can find the fan blade, made of plastic, being covered by the vertical duct that came from the drum. then the outlet of the fan assembly goes out to the exhaust of the dryer.

another could be problem would be a clogged exhaust duct. check the exhaust duct or the hoce that is attached to it. see to it that it is clean and no blockade.
