The top gets the hotest as the heat from the cavity must get out through vent holes in the cavity. The sides will get hot if not adequate air flow is available.
Hope this helps.

Hot microwave door handle


I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

KitchenAid Architect II KHHC2090S Stainless Steel 1200 Watts Convection / Microwave Oven. Microwave quit heating. Inverter and magnetron replaced by the repairman. Still no heat but the magnetron gets...


Perhaps the "repairman" should take another look at it. A lot of microwave ovens have an aerial that directs the energy out to the load or food to be heated.
Maybe...maybe not but worth a look behind the waveguide cover I would say.

I have a small dent in my stainless steel refrigerator. I've tried a plunger and the blow dryer and dry ice trick any other ideas?


Because it is stainless steel it is not likely that it will come out the compressed air and blow dryer are you best bet but it is unlikely that it will come out

Unsightly film on microwave after cleaning with bleach.


Purchase a stainless steel cleaner from anywhere. They usually have lemon oil in them that leaves a nice shine on the surface. You can even use furniture polish in a pinch it is about the same. An oil free choice would simply be window cleaner and paper towel. My moms old fashion secret to no streaks was newspaper for drying with. Works great. Good luck.

I seasoned my new stainless steel skillet in the oven now I have built up oil stuck to the sides inside the skillet. How can I remove this without damaging the stainless steel finish? HELP!


You only need to season a cast iron skillet, not stainless steel. Soak it in hot soapy water and use something like a mister clean pad to clean it.

No power. All house breakers reset. Possible fuse but don't know where it is located. model WMH1162XVB-2


The M/W fuse is located inside the oven and accessed by removing the cover. They are usually just past where the power cord enters the oven from the rear.

Replacing outer glass and stainless steel door on my jenn-air microwave oven


You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

Panasonic NN-T687 (The Genius) door release button does not open front door. Appliance is mounted with a stainless steel frame over the oven.


You will need to remove the oven from the frame, then remove the outer cover from the door.

Once the outer cover's off, you'll be able to see that door opening button presses against the door opening lever, which presses up on the door key/hook to open the door.

Usually the problem is a broken door opening lever.

You can order that part directly from Panasonic here.

Once it's fixed, if you want to download the owner's manual, it's here.

Amama 2.0 Cu ft. Radarange Microwave model# UXA3036BAB


This model does not list Stainless Steel as a feature. Stainless Steel is used in the interior (CAVITY) of a Microwave if it is a Combination Convection/Microwave Oven. The Convection Oven can reach temperatures of 400+ degreesF. This Temperature would MELT the paint off a painted interior.
Stainless Steel can be tested with a Magnet. It will not be attracted or "Stick" to Stainless.
Hope this answers your concerns!
Thanks!
