Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today

Have you used the oven yet ? this is going to really smell bad, the Mice pee all over the insulation and when you use the oven it bakes onto the oven metal cavity. this you cannot get out unfortunately. and its bad for you health the fumes from it. even if you replace the insulation the metal you cant and that smell will always be there. I know thats not what you wanted to hear and I'm sorry. Most of the techs wont answer this question for fear of a bad rating for saying theres nothing you can do but I'll take that chance that your not going to rate me bad for that. A word of advice too. before replacing the oven make sure you get the mice taken care of. an oven is their favorite place to nest . well wishes , thanks, Bryan

I wanted you to tell me how to get into the oven to clean it out, what needs to be unscrewed. I used it only once and will hope that it is not burnt on. How do i get the insulation, does lowes for instance have it? I will try to fix it, wont replace it. it is a second home. Was looking for an answer of how to get into the oven space.
