Question about Microwave Ovens

2 Answers

A kettle of soup boiled over on my new Kenimore Elite Electric Range. Some of the liquid that fell down the front went into the vents at the top of the door and dripped down onto the inside of the glass panels on the door. Is there anyway to clean this? I can find no way to get to the stain.

This question was asked almost 2 years ago, but thought I'd respond anyway. On the bottom of your oven door there are slots. Pull out the drawer beneath the oven door so you can work under it. Find something that will fit through the slots, a yard stick worked for me, or maybe a wire coathanger. Attach a paper towel or cloth securely to it and put it though the slots to reach the soiled area. It will take some manuvering. I would not recommend taking the door apart. When I did some research on this some time ago, I read that it can be difficult or impossible to get it back together again.

    Thanks. I had figured that this might be my only option, but hoped maybe someone had found another solution. And no, mechanical is not my or my husband's middle name (I boiled soup all over my new cooktop-What does that tell you about my manual abilities?).

If you got it hot enough from your soup there is a fan switch to turn the blower on to cool the unit. Maybe next time cook that on a different burner on the stove to try to not heat up that area under the microwave.

Yes, if your worried, use a fine emory paper to clean off the tarnish from the heat scorch. You may have shortened the life a little on the element but it is fine as long as it is not spalling, of flaking.

How do you desalazize kettle?


If by desalazize you mean remove the deposits which build up from the minerals in your tap water, the easiest way to do it is with white vinegar (most vinegar will work but white is best for cleaning).
  1. Fill kettle with a mixture of white vinegar and water (about 50/50 but it doesn't have to be exact) until it covers as much of the deposits as possible.
  2. Heat the kettle until the liquid boils
  3. Let the kettle sit with the liquid in it for 3-6 hours
  4. Empty and Rinse
  5. Fill kettle with regular water, boil, and empty to get rid of any lingering vinegar taste.
If the deposits are especially thick, you may need to repeat steps 1-4 before moving on to step 5.

I want to buy a replacement KETTLE only, for my black, RH Quick 2 Boil Kettle, any suggestions. Nick


I would contact Russel Hobbs and see if they actually sell them separately. When you are online to them there should be available, a list of retailers that stock the item you want http://www.amazon.co.uk/Russell-Hobbs-15198-Quick-2-Boil-Kettle/dp/B003DNSQPC

I see what you mean, it is part of a set. I bought one, in dark grey, and I am sure they sold one in black, from Wilkinsons. It was Quick Boil Kettle only, on a standard connector stand. TJ Hughes also stock them!

Hope that helps.

New kettle leaves a metalic tast to water after boiling.


Try different water. If you use tap water normally, buy a jug of water at the store. The pH may be wrong (particularly if it is too low) and leeching metal from the kettle. Good luck.

Front vent fell off


This should be a very easy fix. I assume you are talking about the plastic vent grill on the top of the oven above the door. There should only be a couple of screws holding it in from the top. The grill then should tilt out from the top first then from the bottom to remove. Since you said that it had fallen off, it sounds like the tabs where the screw holes are have broken off. This is a common problem. You can buy the part by ordering from the manufacturer, or from most repair websites. All you need is the model number from the microwave. Good luck.
