Condensation between door glasses

This moisture can accumulate from certain types of cooking (lots of boiling) in the microwave or in extreme cases, from a blocked grease filter or exhaust vent duct.

Spills or large amounts of accumulated moisture should be wiped off. Minor amounts can dry out by themselves easier if you leave the door open after cooking.

Also, when boiling on the stovetop, you should always use the hood vent exhuast fan to keep steam and grease out of the controls and the door area of the microwave. I always recommend using the vent fan with any cooking on the stovetop.

As long as it is not rusting the metal mesh screen or other parts of the door, it can be allowed to dry out over a period of days with the door open.

If it is a convection microwave, using the convection heat will help it dry.

Our Kenmore Microwave Hood combo model # 401.88529011 door sticks and is very hard to open off and on

Possible that the door lock is jammed, it can also be due to jamming of the door switch or the plastic lock being stuck on.
You need to remove the front panel , and reset the door assembly.

Not drying clothes. Have checked all filters and water tank. Still not drying :-(


If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

The cooker hood fan does not work. ou can hear it wanting to work but fan does not come on. There is electric present.Can you help

Remove the fan motor, clean it and lubricate the bearings. These motors and fans get gummed up with cooking and this jams them up. Make sure that the power is off before starting work and the the motor is completely dry before installing it. You may need a penetrant spray to shift the build up. Do not get any solvents on the motor windings, they could destroy the insulation.

The inside of the microwave is peeling what if anything to do and why

It can sometimes be caused by moist air from cooking food and not having the door left open to dry or just faulty paint work.
There is paint available on the market to repair the damaged paint. It will give you a bit more use out of it.

My Kenmore Elite HE3 dryer is very slow at drying clothes even at the highest temp and seems to be getting worse.

Best guess is your dryer vent might be blocked. Check to ensure the vent hose is clear of lint all the way to its outlet.
