Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a blanco gas stove top. While cleaning it a screw fell into the gas burner hole and is down too far to pull it out. Can I still operate the stove top with it lodged in the outlet? Or do I need to take off the stove top and get it out?

I am disassembling a Kenmore stove top gas burner to clean under the stove top. To do so you actually need to unscrew the burners, which I've done, but then I need to unhook the spark electrode, which...


The electrode is held onto the burner head with a screw through the mounting tab. They can get crusted over and it's not always easy to see the screw head, but it's there.

I have a maytag super capacity plus stove and need to adjust the air mix for the burners. How to do it? Please help thanks


Open the top of the range. I believe there are a couple of spring clips in the front between the range top and the top of the door. Not sure on the Maytag. However, when you get the lid up, (it should be hinged at the back), set the burner pieces back on. (These burner pieces HAVE to be there or you'll just have a blowtorch pointing up!) You'll see that going to every burner there is a tube to carry the gas. on the side of every tube there will be an adjustable, sliding air vent. They are usually held in position by a set screw. Loosen the set screw. Light the burner and carefully slide the vent closed or open to adjust how much air is being brought into the mix. If the flame is way too high and or orange in color....you have too much air. You want as much flame as possible on high without the flame being orange or white-ish. Once you get the flame the way you like it, tighten the set screw back. Hope this helps.

When stove is on a yellowish orange flame comes from burner.This has not occured until now. We own this viking oven for about 10 yrs without any issue whatso ever. Can you help to resolve this issue


You need to replace the burner if you want blue flame. Since its 10 years old, it's about time to replace the burner with similar size and shape. Old burner have big hole causing yellowish flame compare to new one.
I hope I solve your problem.

I have a whirlpool stove and one of the burner doesn't work but the light on switch works. What could be the problem and how can I fix. Help pls.


1.TURN THE POWER OFF TO YOUR STOVE! In most houses, the electric stove is on it's own circuit breaker. If you are in an older home, you're probably lucky you even have a stove...just kidding! If you had your kitchen updated, every electrician should have wired your stove to its own circuit breaker. Shut off the circuit breaker.
2.Remove all the burners and catch plates under them. You are going to lift the top of your stove up. Once you've done that, see what kind of receptacle you have. You'll now have to shop around to find the part. The local appliance store charged us way too much. Lowe's or Home Depot might not have your parts, or they might. Amazon might have your part and if they don't, they will direct you to someone that will. We could have saved half the purchase price if we'd gone there in the first place.
*A quick note* The receptacle is wired to the switches at the front of the stove. They complete the entire circuit, so that is the only thing you need to worry about--from the switch to the receptacle.
After the stove top is lifted, you will find another tray under it. If the wires from the receptacles go under the tray to the "on" switches at the front of
your stove, you'll have to lift this tray up as well. Remove the tray and any other panels you need to in order to get to the switches.
3.Follow the wires, which should be color-coded for that stove top burner, until you find the switch it hooks to. If you have not purchased the parts yet, go ahead and disconnect the wire from the switch and pull the receptacle from it's aluminum cradle. You'll want these parts to take with you to find their replacements.
*note* Your new wire receptacle should consist of the housing for the burner to fit snug into, and two wires that extend from the other end. Electricity works in a circle. If the circle is broken, you have a short and that is where the spark comes from- your electrical current was trying to reach the other side and sparked to get there.
If you do have the parts, compare them to the old ones to make sure they are the same. Nothing worse than spending time on a repair with the wrong parts.
If you have the RIGHT parts, find the correct end of your wires and just slide it over the terminal at the switch. They might be the screw types. Whatever you have, connect it. It does not matter which one went where. As long as you are using the empty wire terminals you just uncovered with the old wires, you are completing the circle.
*Note* I have seen some receptacle kits that do not give you enough wire and require you to splice wires together. Not only is that a bad idea, but does not conform to electrical codes requirements and could result in fire. If the new equipment did not come with long enough wire to reach all the way from receptacle to switch, purchase a longer wire at your local hardware store. For a few pennies more you could be saving your family's lives.
4.Once you have hooked the receptacle ends to the switch harness, tie down the wires alongside the wire bundle until you get to the end.
5.Attach your burner receptacle to the aluminum clamp.
6.Attach your aluminum clamp to the stove top.
7.Screw down all the pieces you removed- anything covering the switches and the bottom tray. Put down your stove top and put in place all the shields and burners. Turn the circuit breaker back on for your stove and try it out!8_10_2012_8_42_55_am.jpg

The gas flame on my 4 burner Chambers stove top is very low. When we try to adjust the air flow the flames increase for a moment but then return to being low. What could the problem be and how can we fix...


I had the same problem after a melted butter accident... I shut off the gas under the stove by a valve. Then I took the burners off and cleaned every orifice I could find. Still no luck. Then I cleaned out the main orifice right out of the controls for the burners, it was tiny and had to get a very small pipe cleaner made for an air brush gun. That did the trick! But now I have soaring flames and I'm trying to figure out how to adjust them back down.

I have just moved into a 10 year old house. It has Blanco gas cook top and a Blanco wall oven. My problem is the electric starter for the gas top does not work. and the Oven indicators eg. top element,...


#1 You may have a blown fuse which sets all these issues together

#2 Your sparker may need to be tested, try a voltmeter to it and see what it reads. If voltmeter reads voltage, then it's a simple adjustment of distance to contact. If no voltage, then you'll need to replace sparker.

#3 as far as your indicators, that has to be an internal fuse.

I agree with you for not replacing these appliances, I love to cook with gas

My frigidaire microwave door is sagging and is about to fall off


EASY get a machine screw, nut with washer. I believe I used a 1/8" machine screw.....(find something small to fit in the hole on the bottom hinge.

First step, take 3 screws off bottom to expose hinge area. Have someone hold it or support it so wires to the light do not pull out,.

Pop the machine screw through the front and then with your fingers get the washer an nut and tighten down.
If you want the professsional look. Paint the machine screw white first with a enamel white paint.

Kitchen Aid (KA) Over stove Micro - vent grill plastic brackets


My grill has also fallen off twice. It usually results in the tabs breaking off. My solution has been to add tiny (1/2" x 1") shims in the slots where the tabs have broken. Look carefully. There are two tiny channels. I wedged the wood in and then reattached the grill using sheet metal screws in the same screw holes. It won't come down again. In three years since doing the kitchen with all KA appliances we have replaced the grill once. We had the stove removed and replaced by the appliance company at no charge after 4 months. We had our ice maker replaced out of warranty. I would never recommend KA appliances to anyone. The quality is absolutely terrible.
