Covers over cooking/night lights are melting


I have a microwave above my stove also but it has not done what yours is doing. I would try a lower watt bulb since it would not give off as much heat. You may need to replace the lens or else just take it out and get rid of the problem altogether. You would have a brighter light anywas even if you kept the same bulb. Most of those bulbs are florescent and do not put out much heat anyway and seldom cause heat problems, esp. giving off enough heat to melt something.

Freezer down


CHANCES ARE THE DEFROST HEATER HAS GONE BAD LOOK IN THE BACK OF THE FREEZER ON THE REAR WALL DO YOU SEE ICE BUILD UP? IF SO TAKE A HAIR DRYER AND MELT THE ICE.MAKE SURE THE FREEZER IS UNPLUGGED.NOW REMOVE SCREWS TO GET THE COVER OFF AFTER REMOVING THE COVER CHANCES ARE YOU WILL FIND THE COILS FROZEN OVER.USE THE HAIR DRYER AND DEFROST THE COILS CLEAN OF ALL ICE.NOW THAT THE ICE IS GONE YOU NEED TO OHM OUT THE HEATER WITH A VOLT OHM METER YOU CAN BUT ON AT ANY HARD WARE STORE OR EVEN AT WAL-MART. WITH OUT KNOWING THE BRAND OF FREEZER I CANT TELL YOU IF IT IS A CAL ROD ELEMENT (LOOKS LIKE YOUR OVEN HEATING ELEMENT OR A GLASS TUBE. IF IT IS THE GLASS TUBE YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THE WIRE ELEMENT INSIDE IF YOU CANT REPLACE ELEMENTS/S WITH THE DEFROST THERMOSTAT. IF IT IS THE CAL ROD YOU MAY OR MAYNOT SEE WHERE IT IS BROKEN YOU MAY HAVE TO OHM IT OUT BUT AGAIN REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT ALSO. BUT SINCE YOU HAVE THE UNIT DEFROSTED THIS WILL GIVE YOU ABOUT THREE DAYS UNTIL YOU NEED TO DEFROST IT AGAIN IF YOU HAVE TO WAIT ON PARTS BUT REMIMBER TO PUT REAR COVER BACK ON OR IT WONT COOL
GOOD LUCK

Microwave will not cook


Sounds like the magnetron has failed. There are some high voltage circuits that feed the magnetron and you can potentially get hurt if you don't know what you are doing. Would recommend you have it serviced by a professional if you want it fixed, otherwise look for a new one since the cost of repair can come close to the price of a new microwave oven.

Yes, we were a couple of dummys when we received our brand new LG stove, with convection oven,glass top and very fancy, and we put tin foil to cover the bottom of the stove and of course yesterday when I...


I really don't know what to tell you. During the clean cycyle the metal probably melted and is permantly sealed to the bottom. You are lucky the oven still works. Sometimes using foil will destroy sensors or other things. NEVER use foil in ANY oven!!!!! The only exception is to partially cover the shelf underneath something you know is going to make a mess. Even then don't cover more than about 60% of the rack.(Never do this in a convection oven as the fan will blow the foil ) Also NEVER!!! allow foil to come in contact with a hot burner. It will melt to the smooth top or coil.

Melted Tin Foil in bottom of oven


Unfortunately, it's too late. The tin foil has melted into the panel and can't be removed. You should never place anything on the bottom of a stove that has a hidden element. You WILL damage the panel. The only option you have is to replace the panel or the entire oven liner...

Gas oven - - melted plastic inside


You can remove the bottom oven panel and look under it. All you have to do is remove the oven racks and locate the screws that hold the bottom panel in place. MOST ovens only have two of them. Once you have the crews removed, the panel slides back a bit, then lifts up. If there are any heavy deposits of melted plastic, remove it like you did before. Any residual material can be taken off with some fine emery paper. Wear a dust mask and vacuum all the dust out of the oven. DO NOT use this method on the oven wall as it may scatch it. This is only for anything that may have dripped below the oven pan. You may have an odor to the oven for a while, but as long as you have nothing else melted inside this should go away. Try running it on a cleaning cycle AFTER you've inspected the oven & cleaned out the remaining plastic. This will burn off anything left behind. I hope this helps you.

Melted Tin Foil in bottom of oven


Use "The Works Toilet Bowl Cleaner" to dissolve the foil. *Caution* when the cleaner is applied to the foil a chemical reaction occurs releasing some harmful fumes so please use outside or in a well ventilated area. I just did this to a Frigidaire oven I bought from Lowes at a discounted price. The previous owners bought it, did not read the owners manual or just disregarded the warnings on using foil in the oven and thought they would line the bottom pan with foil to help make it easier to clean (Good idea, but don't try it on the hidden element ovens). With the heating element being hidden under the drip pan the heat is hot enough to melt the foil and fuse it to the pan. Now most of the pans on these ovens are removable by just a couple of screws and I strongly recommend removing the pan when doing this. Squirt some Works toilet bowl cleaner on it in a well ventilated area and watch it go to work. It took about 15 minutes for it to dissolve all the foil on my oven, then I rinsed it clean and reinstalled it in the oven. The pan does have a slight discoloration on it, not from the cleaner but from the foil being melted onto the pan, if you choose you can buff this out. Most of the modern ovens have the ceramic coated drip pans in them so the Works toilet bowl cleaner will not harm them, unless you have scratched the finish off. Works Toilet bowl cleaner contains a fair amount of hydrochloric acid which is what makes this work so well.
