The insulation can be replaced, but it may not be cost effective, and you may encounter technician resistance due to the circumstances. Depending on the age of the range you may want to just replace it. Also this item usually is a special order item. I will provide you with a link to assist you in making your decision.

I have a small, 4-burner gas stove; no wondow in the oven door. I think my stove had a mouse infestation. I think the insulation above the oven has mouse urine in it; I can smell it, although there is no...


It is common for mice to get into the oven box insulation and nest. I had this problem before and its not likely you'll be able to get rid of the odor without replacing the insulation. Another issue is any fecal matter the mice leave behind. This can become a health hazard (expecially in an appliance that you use to prepare food). I would recommend replacing the insulation. If the model oven is correct, the insulation can be purchased for around $20 at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The part number will depend upon your COMPLETE model number (located on a nameplate around the oven door opening, or lower drawer opening (if equipped). On some models, the model number will appear on the back of the operator console. The first three sites on the list include exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly indentifying any parts you may need. The insulation for the Magic Chef 31000 series is listed under the "Body" parts list.


To replace the insulation on MOST ranges, all you should have to do is lift the range top to access the oven box. The top on most ranges can be lifted by removing a series of screws that are usually holding it secure under the bottom of the front edge. You will need to open the oven door to see them. CAUTION: Do not lean on the oven door as this may cause damage to the door hinges and springs.

On the Magic Chef 31000 series, it appears that you will need to remove the burner control knobs, followed by screws holding the burner control control panel in place. You should also remove all the orifice covers and burner grates from the top of the range. Once the burner control is removed, remove the top panel, followed by the burner box top panel. The insulation will be wrapped around the oven box. It should just lift out. Depending on the potential infestation, you may want to wear a dust mask and use a vaccum to **** up any loose debris. CAUTION: Turn off the gas supply BEFORE attempting any repairs - if this is a gas range.

If you have questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I am looking at an Inglis range, approximately $479.00 and am wondering if the insulation in the oven door is less than a more expensive stove would have.

I believe there is a mouse nest in the insulation of my whirlpool ceramic stove top, how do I remove the stove top to clean it out?


Open the oven door and locate the screws under the bottom of the front edge of the cook top. Remove the screws and the cook top should lift up. If the range is not equipped with any kind of hinge supports, the top will have to be propped up.

If there is evidence of any rodent infestation, make sure you do a thorough inspection of all internal wiring. Mice love to chew on wire insulation. Any bare wires can result in appliance failure, electric shock, or become a fire hazard. Make sure you do not use the range until repairs are made if there are signs of any wire damage.

NOTE: Ensure you also check the wiring inside the operator console. Remove the back panel to access.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Rat Nest in oven insulation


No the insulation must be replaced . the insulation makes the oven cycle on and off less frequently and also keeps the exposed metal surfaces cooler.

Hot poinbt gas stove , mouse inside,


We had this happen recently. The smell of urine got to be too much. My wife wouldn't even go into the kitchen. I took the stove apart. the insulation under the range, which is where he was living, was soaked in urine and **** .I removed all the insulation. Spoke to a repair man. Replaced insulation with pink house fiberglas insuation and gave it a good cleaning. Smeel is gone. Repairman said this happens all the time and is a an easy but labor-intensive job. Call someone to do it if you aren't comfortable taking your stove apart.
