SOURCE: self-cleaning leaves a brown stain on the white part on my oven

Perhaps the door gasket is not sealing well enough. In self clean mode the oven get very hot and vaporizes the fat off the sides. With a leak I think some of the fat is redepositing on on the outside where the leak is. You may need a new door seal.

Hello- The self-clean cycle heats the inside up to about 800deg. There is no existing plastic that can take the heat at the vent w/out discoloring. The stain is from the smoke produced when the stuff on the drip pan incinerates. Try some oxy-clean and a damp cloth. Try to predict or minimize spills with foil and drip pans. Techs call 'self-clean' the 'self-destruct' cycle. Using this function will reduce the life expectancy of any electric range. Let me know if this info helps-have more if needed- Thanks- ED

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Washer/Dryer get brown streaks on clothing

The brown stains are likely coming from the felt drum seal. The OEM adhesive is tar based - and after time and use - breaks down.

You'll need a new felt seal - and the adhesive that is used should be silicone based... eliminating the brown streaks.

Kitchenaid dishwasher rust spots


Hello -

The cause of the stains on the interior of your dishwasher may be the water. Do you know if you have hard water, water with a high mineral content? If so, do you know if the water has a high iron or maganese content?

If you have hard water in your home water supply and do not have a water softener, check the owner's manual for your dishwasher - the Troubleshooting section - to see if there is mention of stains on the interior of the dishwasher.

+++
From the American Cleaning Institute web page on Automatic Dishwashers:
http://www.cleaninginstitute.org/clean_living/automatic_dishwashing_problems.aspx#Yellow
Yellow / Brown Stains

Causes:
Iron or manganese content in water supply.

Solutions:
After food soil is removed, wash dishes with citric acid crystals. Check dishwasher manufacturer's instructions for amount to use and method. Do not add detergent.

A liquid product is available to remove iron deposits from the dishwasher interior; follow the package instructions.

To retard staining, use maximum amount of dishwasher detergent to keep iron or manganese in suspension during the wash. Use a rinse additive during the rinse.

Preventative Measures:
If staining cannot be controlled, the only solution is in the installation of iron removal equipment in the home water supply.
+++

Some solutions to the interior staining problem recommend the addition of citric acid crytals to the covered section of the dishwasher detergent dispenser. If you do that, be sure you do not have any sterling silver or silver plate tableware in the dishwasher. (Those items are best washed by hand, anyway.) Citric acid will cause pits on sterling silver and silver plate. Note: Some dishwasher detergents and dish liquids have citric acid in their formulations - check the ingredients.

Best wishes.

Brown residue from muratic acid fumes on stainless steel applianc


Just a thought it may not work.

Since Muratic acid caused the trouble try it to remove the stain. Then after its removed use baking soda to kill the acid and within 3 toi 4 hours re apply baking soda and re clean. Maybe do the cleaning 3 times just to be safe.

I only say this because to remove oil you use an oil based solvent. Water use a water base solvent.
So maybe ...
Then again maybe not
If this works or doesn't Id like to know.
The last thing to use is a piece of aluminum tape to cover the area so its not brown.

If this helped you please rate me accordingly and good luck.

BRown water and stuff coming out of iron


Hi, two problems:

DIA' s problem - the brown water is due to poor water quality and debris in the boiler and iron sytem. Rowenta is clear that they do not want anyone to cleaning solutions - only clear filtered drinking water to rinse out the boiler (via the water inlet screw hole) and I have found running the system dry, letting it cool, rinsing and draining the boiler several times before putting unit away works fine.

Guest' problem with brown/black tar substance is likely caused by too hot and iron setting (steam setting may also be too high) for ironing man-made synthetics (like Nylon, Rayon, Polyester or blends are basically petroleum based fabrics) that breakdown or melt, leaving deposits on the iron's stainless steel soleplate. A secondary cause could be bad water or debris in the boiler/iron in which the solution for DIA's problem might provide relief. Cleaning the soleplate is tricky, I use nothing stronger than an old fashioned wooden orange stick to gently scrap of all traces of the "stuff" and dry "Dutch" cleanser w/ a terry cloth or old cotton sock to polish without scratching the soft stainless soleplate...
