I burnet a styfoam, and plastic cover in the microwave. The smell is awful, like melted plastic and burnt wood. My entire house smells horrible. Is there some way to get the smell out.


Try pouring some vinegar in a cup and microwaving until the vinegar steams. This works well when burnt popcorn smells up the microwave.

Cook's essential pressure cooker has an E4 error. Tried everything and cannot get the unit to start


Make sure the inner container is dry... plug he unit off then on again.

Eventually, the "E4" display would appear. I determined the steam vent valve (loose piece) was not seated on the vent hole in the cover so the pressure never built up. I removed the loose piece which consists of a metal cylinder and a black plastic cover with a handle.

My 7qt slow cooker glass cover doesn't have a small hole for the steam to escape, so while it's cooking it is continually lifting the cover spitting out water and dripping over the whole counter, is that...


The slow cooker works by heating the food up to around 85 degrees Celcius and should not boil. If you have it hot enough to boil place a tooth pick under the glass edge. That will let the steam out.

Is there a piece I can install on the bottom of my over-the-range microwave that will help keep the front of the microwave from being covered in steam when cooking on my stovetop?


Every over the range microwave has a vent on it that should be venting that steam. I don't know of anything you could put under there that would solve your problem as that is where then vents are and they would be blocked. It sounds to me as though your steam is not being vented properly, and this could also happen if the steam is being vented back into the room instead of outside as many OTR microwaves allow you to do. Its a little bit of work to vent it outside but I myself did that with my microwave and have never had a steam accumulation problem.

Heating the cup more than coffee


make sure the stirrer motor located under the outer cover that distributes the microwaves is turning otherwise you will get hot and cold spots in the oven cavity

Vent cover does not close


I had the same problem. It was the plastic that holds the folding vent cover, it cracked. I didn't do anything about it and just let it go. Mistake. Last night it broke off completely, on both sides! So now I am looking at a much bigger project to try to glue/build the darn thing. I suggest you get up there with a flash light when it is open and see if there is any sign of the plastic cracking. If so, take out the two screws on the top and that will let you pull your vent cover off completley and you might be able to glue the plastic and reenforce any weak areas. I have found many posts about this problem on line and sounds like GE charges about $400 to fit it (more than a new one!) Good luck!

How do I replace the door handle on microwave?


Once you follow the youtube instructions to remove the inside cover you are ready for the next step.
Remove the six small screws that are adjacent to the window. After this the front plastic is held in only by plastic clips to the metal door. The plastic clips and the screws together hold this together.

Remove the entire door by lifting up and move it to a flat service. If the top vent cover prevents this just remove the two screws on top of the microwave and pull the vent cover off.

With the door lying flat you can pull the plastic frame out on top and bottom and see how the clips work. Now just work you way around the frame until it separates.

Install handle and reassemble in reverse order.

Too Much Steam?


It's possible that the vents got blocked. If it vents to the outside, look for debris in the vent exit at the side or attic of the home. If you're lucky, these will dry put (sometimes it helps to remove the cover) but sometimes the excess moisture gets in and cannot get out. This causes a keypad or control board failure. Please post an update if you still need help.
