Range insulation
« on: January 30, 2013, 10:21:21 AM »

The insulation on a GE gas range is coming off, right under the range at the top of the oven door. You guys ever had or heard of a problem like this?

The actual oven cavity insulation? Or the oven door seal?

The insulation araound the oven is coming off, not the door. Like the fiberglass looking stuff around the oven.

Are you seeing this with the top up? Are there signs of mice activity?

There was mice but there was an exterminator that came out to deal with it.
