Default Sealant Removal before installing inlet cover in Microwave
Model Number: MH1150XMT-3   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I am replacing the inlet cove in my microwave (had a fire and it melted). I am trying to remove the old sealant and it is difficult to remove. Is there any way to loosen the sealant without scraping it off? It's a Whirlpool not a Kitchen Aid.

Annie,

You could attempt to soften it with some basic cleaning chemicals, I used denatured alcohol,mostly, but paint thinner, goo gone, etc. should work as well.

You would also need to get your hands on a "plastic" putty knife or scraper, so you don't scratch the paint off the cavity,and remove as best possible.

That's about the best you can do at this point.

Good Luck,
