Easy Off Fume Free Oven Cleaner Review - Problems With Glass On Oven Door
by Stain Removal 101 Reader
A Stain Removal 101 reader has written in to share her problem with Easy Off Fume Free oven cleaner that she has experienced.
The white finish around the glass of my oven door is discolored after using Easy Off oven cleaner (blue label) to clean my self-cleaning oven!
I just got off the phone with Customer Service about a problem that I had with some damage done to the door of my double oven.
After cleaning it and letting it sit overnight I wiped everything out. (It was sparkling clean!) However, I noticed that when I had the light on, that their was a discoloration coming through all around the glass on the front of both doors.
It says that you can use the product on the glass doors and mine did come very clean. It looks like, someway, the product got in between the glass and the white finish of the front of the oven? This is an expensive, Kitchen-Aid, double oven, with a white finish and glass in the middle, so that you can see in your oven while cooking.
I have no idea why this happened, because on their "Frequently Asked Questions", it says that you can spray it on the glass for cleaning.
I'm waiting for the person from customer service, who I spoke to, to give me a call and see what can be done about the problem. The front of my doors now are ruined.
You can see the difference a little bit when the light is off, but when the light comes on, their is about a 2 inch discoloration appearing on the white part, that surrounds the glass.
I sure hope they can come up with a solution, as the product works great, except for that.
Also, have any of you used the product on the racks to clean them? I've always soaked mine, rather than leave them in during the self-cleaning cycle, because it dulls them and they don't slide as well.
Let me know, as mine are soaking in my tub, as that's the way I have always cleaned them.
I sure hope Easy Off can help you with this issue with your oven doors. I really don't know what to say, other than I'm sorry that happened to you.
Other readers, have you experienced such a problem before? If so, was there anything you could do about it? If you have any ideas or suggestions please place them in the comments.
This is the first big complaint I've received about Easy Off oven cleaner, although I have gotten mixed reviews. You can read even more Easy Off oven cleaner reviews here.
I am curious, did you use the aerosol spray Easy Off Fume Free oven cleaner, or the newer spray bottle version? I wonder if that would have made a difference? I would think the aerosol would be more likely to get in little crevices on accident like that, but I'm not sure.
In regard to your question about cleaning oven racks, I would continue doing it the way you have mentioned. First soak the rack in soapy water, and then scrub them with a plastic scrubber. If they have a lot of burned food residue on them adding a bit of ammonia to the water can help loosen all than gunk off.
I hope you enjoy this gift, and stop by again soon!
