It depends on what material the kettle is made of. If it is aluminium you can only really scour it with steel wool and abrasives. It it is stainless steel, there are chemical cleaners that are available. These are acid based and the kettle can be left with the cleaner in it - follow the instructions on the container. The aluminium instructions will also work, but the chemical is less work although a bit of follow-up hand cleaning may be necessary.

An awesome product that you spray on and let sit overnight. then simply wash it off. (Non Toxic / Non corrosive) No gloves required but does have an odd odor so I would let it soak outside. Heavy accumulations may require a second treatment.

Also great on shower heads. Remove it.. place it in a glass overnight and then re-install the next moring. Does not discolor anything. Ditto for shower enclosures and tile. Why this product is not in great demand is a mystery.

THIS WILL Clean it.

Microwave quit


Hi there,

Well first of all you can try to clean the turntable- Remove your glass turntable cooking tray from your microwave. Gently wash with warm soapy water to remove any debris. Next remove the turntable guide and clean it in the same manner, with warm soapy water. Pay particular attention to the turntable rollers. There could be spilled food particles caught in the rollers, hindering the rollers' movement. Also, gently cleanse the internal cavity of your microwave, paying special attention to the area below the turntable. With the internal cavity, turntable, and turntable guide completely clean and dry, return the parts to your microwave. First place the turntable guide on the bottom of the microwave. There should be a circular groove in the bottom of the microwave cavity keeping the turntable guide in place. Follow the guide with the turntable cooking tray. Carefully place the glass tray over the turntable guide and onto the drive bushing. The drive bushing should fit neatly into the grooves on the bottom of your glass cooking tray. It may take some adjusting before the tray will sit properly onto the drive bushing. If further you have the same problem then this could be a failing turntable motor...... Please post comments for further help or information.......

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Can you put and over-the-counter microwave over a stove?


Yes, that is what they are made for, As long as it has a vent that can be used to vent the smoke from cooking it can be mounted over the stove. Normally the bottom of the microwave should be mounted 16" to 19" above the stove top. The microwave must have a vent with a blower motor in order to be used above a stove top. Most have a thermal switch that will turn the microwave vent on once the temperature reaches a set point.

Rust colored spots appearing between the glass panels in the door of our over the stove Microwave, model #MH6140XKQ


You first want to be sure your hood vent exhaust fan is working properly, that your grease filters are not clogged, that your charcoal filter (if equipped) is being changed every 6 months or whatever the owner's manual recommends, and that your exhaust duct work and outlet are not blocked.

You can also download the installation instructions from the link above and they will help you in checking the ducts and outlet.

If they're all okay, to prevent future moisture buildup, I recommend wiping the condensation off the walls and inner door surfaces after cooking, and leaving the door open a while to help it dry out further.

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

Once troubleshooting and prevention are covered, then you can clean and repair the inner door surfaces.

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

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

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

If the rust is bad, the area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

If the wire mesh screen is damaged beyond just surface rust, it will have to be replaced, as it prevents microwave leakage, which can result in arcing or a fire.

Acceptable distance from cook top surface to microwave?


Sorry but your subject line got cut off. I'll assume you're talking about the distance from the cooktop to the top of the microwave (bottom of the cabinet to which it's mounted).

Here's how the installation instructions spec it:
  • "Make sure the bottom edge of the cabinet that will be above the microwave oven is at least 66" from the floor and 30" from the cooking surface."
So it's measured from the cooktop to the top of the microwave, not the bottom edge.

And 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.

You can also download your owner's manual form the link I posted above.

This is usually due to spills, inadequate ventilation, or cooking on the stove top without having the hood / vent fan on.

It really should be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

What is the building code for the distance from the bottom of the microwave to the cooking surface below? I have a Maytag microwave that was manufactured in May 2002 and a Maytag Gemini gas cooking stove.


You can check the owner's manual or installation instructions for what the manufacturer stipulates.

If you don't have them, you can download them here.

For building codes, contact your county or city government offices.

Paint blistering on inside of advantium oven. Could get into food?


It could.

You should sand it down, then wipe with alcohol to be sure it's squeaky clean and dry.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

To avoid moisture buildup inside, be sure your vent / hood exhaust fan is always on when you cook on the stove top.

Also, leave the door open for a few minutes after cooking in it, and even wipe it down inside if needed.
