  • In general to clean a microwave you want to use soap and warm water.
  • Make sure to clean the ceiling of the microwave real good to as this is where the food tends to splatter the worst.
  • Use care when handling the glass floor of the microwave.
  • Don't get any water in the back vents.
  • Never use any metallic items in a microwave at all.
  • Some plates have silver and or gold inlay decoration. Never use these in a microwave either.
  • Microwaves will last a long time if properly cared for as most items well.

Just bought one of your microwaves - model HB-P100N30AL-S3 - and after using it a couple times, I noticed that there's a piece of what looks like cardboard inside the oven on the right-hand...

That's the waveguide cover, which protects the waveguide and magnetron from moisture, grease, and food particles, which can carbonize, arc, and damage these parts.

It should be kept installed and kept clean.

I'm trying to change the kitchen faucet and the shut off valves under the sink will not turn, I've tried to spray them with WD40 but they still won't turn. I live in a Condo so I cannot shut...

If you can't work the shutoffs on the water lines under the sink, your only choice is to contact your condo maintenance people. They need to have some way to shut the water off to your unit when they make repairs. They can tell you if there are some more valves in another area that you can access, or they may have a maintenance closet somewhere and can turn the water off for you so you can make the repair.

Sometimes you can turn a sticky valve by using a large set of channel-lock pliers or similar type on the knob so you can get leverage. They look like this if you're not familiar with the type:


If it's been a while since the valves have been used, they often don't want to move without help. Once free, they may work fine, but sometimes it's a good idea to replace the shutoff valves as part of the new faucet installation. They're not expensive and you'll know they will work if you need to shut them off in the future. Get "ball-valve stops" which make a positive shutoff. Stops that use a rubber washer can sometimes let water trickle through (or more than trickle!) when shut off. Depending on the kind of valves currently installed and the type of pipes supplying your water, you might want the condo maintenance people to do the replacement. But if 1/2-inch copper pipe is what you have and there's a couple of inches between where the pipe comes through the cabinet back or bottom and the current valves, you can just cut them off with a tubing cutter. Then you can replace them with valves that just slide over the pipe and are fastened by tightening down a compression fitting (tightening a nut, in other words).

You should also plan to use new supply lines from the shutoffs to the faucet. Again, they're cheap and the old ones can sometimes leak when you try reconnecting them. Corrosion and mineral build-up from hard water can lead to poor sealing. The current ones may also be clogged with minerals, and new ones will give your new faucet full flow.

Once you've got that problem of turning off the water supply solved, it's usually not too difficult to change the faucet. Make sure you have a basin wrench on hand; on many faucets it's impossible to reach the supply connections with any other kind. The box from the new faucet may tell you if can get away without one.

Good luck with the project, and thanks for using Fixya!

My frigidaire was very dirty underneath. I cleaned the coils. How long will it take to start cooling again? If it doesn't What next?

Hello. W/D here.
It should start quickly, provided that it was cooling beforehand. Cleaning the coils should only make it more efficient. If it does not cool, and it did before, look for wires that may have been loosened by the cleaning process. If it was not cooling before the cleaning, there can be a number of reasons. It can be because of low refrigerant, compressor issues or elsewhere. Give it a little time. If it is working, you'll notice the temperature drop in the freezer first.
Best regards, --W/D--

I need the istruction manual for the welbilt abm1l23 breadmaker

Most major manufacturers supply manuals online so if you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, you may be pleasantly surprised as usually, if available, one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, Dealer Network for spare part supplies as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.
