I will say no as long as things are allowed to dry. So leave the door open for a time if you will not be using it again soon, or use a cloth to help speed up the process.

AEG micro-combi oven has big condensation problems. The glass on the oven door clouds over and drips of water can be seen on the glass. Water also drips out on both sides of the oven at times formin


Condensation inside the oven comes mainly when the temperature is below 100 Celsius, and this phenomenon is evident in almost all manufacturers. That means, the condensation starts at the beginning and at end of baking. My advice is the same as many manufacturers recommend: Before baking, preheat the oven to min. 100 Celsius and after that place the food in the oven. Reverse the procedure in the "cool down" phase before the temperature drops below 100 ┬░ C and remove the food from the oven.
After that condensation should be drastically reduced.
Condensation could be technically solved but it would be too expensive for manufacturers (more parts inside oven) as well as for customers also (too expensive appliance and lost energy).

Dado

PS. This applies to the traditional way of baking

I have a High Pointe model EM925Bss-s and although the turntable does not work the oven still works. Is this dangerous?


no as long as you never put any metal or foil inside but food won't heat evenly , the turntable can usually be fixed by cleaning out center bearing with Q tip and a shot of oven cleaner this sometimes gets lots of food and grease build up from heavy use machines (usually mass food prep areas) and slows and stops the drive of turntable

Paint is peeling off how can I fix it and do you know if its dangerous


I wouldn't advise trying to fix it and it's not dangerous. When heating food it causes condensation on the inside of the oven which pools at the bottom and causes rust and paint peel.

We have water leaking from the back of the frige, coming from under the area where the copper tubing connects from the wall to the actual refrigerator. I can't identify exactly what's leaking. I doesn't...


This can be an auto defrost condition. If your fridge is auto defrost, what happens during the defrost mode, ice build up is heated (in the area immediately near the evaporator coils, not in the main area) . This ice becomes water and drains out via a small tube, typically at the back or bottom of the machine. This water normally goes into a pan under the fridge, and evaporates without the user being aware of it.

If anything causes excessive ice build up (opening the door too much, door seal leak, etc.) then you get too much water and the pan overfills and spills out.

I suggest that you remove the pan from under your fridge, clean it, and put it back, and test to see if yo actually have anything wrong, or not.

This leak would NOT be refrigerant, as you would cease cooling if so. it is all condensation, which is physics and normal...

After running for around 5-10 seconds, a large "spark" can be seen arcing inside the microwave accompanied by a "shorting out" sound.


It is the magnetron that is arcing and potentially very dangerous, the magnetron is failing or there is exposed metal or to much food particle build up. I suggest unplugging the unit and have it checked out for safety reasons.

My refrigerator has a leak behind the drawers on the inside . I have since had to put a towel at the bottom of the drawers or it will start leaking down the front and onto the floor every couple of days....


Moisture condenses out of the cold air inside the fridge. Many refrigerators have a drain tube in the bottom to allow the condensate to run into a drip tray under the refrigerator (behind the trim panel on the bottom) where it evaporates. Over time this tube can get clogged by food particles and the water backs up, eventually running over the bottom edge onto the floor. You can use a straightened out coat hanger or other stiff wire to clear it out. This should get the water back into the tray where it belongs.

How do I add water to the pressa bella dry steam iron


Turn the big yellow top, if it's air tight use a plier and gently turn it. That will the trick.
WARNING!!! Becareful not to over fill the water reservoir by doing so the water boils making it leak. It is extremely dangerously as I steam burned my hand. Other than that u won't have a problem.

Water is leaking down through what i am calling the vent in the top of the fridge inside and it is building up over a few weeks and then it runs out on the floor.


I have experienced this very same problem before. There is a small condensate drain hole in the rear of the freezer compartment on some model refrigerators. If it ices over, the condensate has no where to go but down through the louvers and into the refrigerator compartment. It usually drips from the center overhead area down on to the shelves and accumulates in the bottom until it runs out the bottom of the door.. One way to tell is to check the back of the refrigerator to see if there is a visible drain line (larger in diameter than the ice make water line) that runs from the freezer compartment down to the compressor area. You may want remove everything and defrost the freezer and see if the problem goes away.

If you have questions/concerns, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.


NOTE: Even if this is a frostless refrigerator, I have experienced the problem where ice can build up and plug the drain. You may have to remove the bottom tray in the freezer to access it.

Condensation inbetween glass door on GE Spacemaker


Your glass seal has failed and I doubt it makes sense to replace the door. Yes, it can be dangerous as the moisture becomes worse you risk the chance the glass could over-heat and blow out. Sounds like you need to replace it, sorry!

Water has penetrated inside the door


Any water in between the glass and the door should evaporate eventually.
I wouldn't advise trying to open any seams in the door or removing the glass to get the water out as that would permanently damage your microwave.

Your models manual talks about steam/water condensation that gets trapped between the door and the glass and what to expect:
