i need help i think i made a mistake?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so basically i watched this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Xanr4jkmEc 

i kinda missed the part where he said not to use a home oven and since i really didnt see any other warning i did it at my home, so now im afraid to use the oven.

does anyone know of some kind of material that i can use to clean it? maybe even leave it hot with a door open to kill all the bacterias? or use 90% alcohol to clean it?

i really dont know what to do and i dont really have the money right now to spend on another oven.

thanks for the help.

i am serious, there are is no bacteria in your oven, the only harmful things can be toxic/poisonous substances the vaporized on heating like any adhesive.
you can try cleaning with alcohol best would be to check you oven for any left over substances.

There could be ways to clean it, and it might be usable for normal food processing again, but without specialized chemicals, processes, equipment, and testing apparatuses (to verify it is safe again), as well as the certainty that you will follow the process exactly and thoroughly, it would be less costly to just buy a new stove. And its not about bacteria so much as it is the chemicals leaving trace amounts of highly toxic residue on your food.

 

Lesson learned: watch any video you plan to replicate multiple times through. Also, don't rely on a single source for information.

Lead and tin are still commonly used and are volatile at those temperatures, that's why it's unusable now as lead poisoning wouldn't be fun.

 

I have no clue how to clean it out, but alcohol or common cleaning products definitely aren't going to do anything.

It's not adhesives that are risky in this situation, it's metal poisoning. Alcohol isn't going to do anything.

Forget bacteria, there could be lead residue on your oven, which is highly toxic, and a bunch of other nasty stuff. You need a new oven.


...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

I really don't know short of contacting a repair person and telling them there may have been noxious metal gas or whatever released in the oven. Definitely don't run it again as you don't want to keep releasing what's already in there.

 

That said, just please be safe and not use it. Even if parents or spouses or whoever may be angry, it's not worth the small chance of someone getting seriously ill.

This is one of those better safe than sorry situations if you ask me. Out of curiosity what did you put in it, also did it work at all?

Lead has been banned from consumer electronics for more than a decade. But you can get decomposition residues from the various plastics, resins, soldermask and paints...

Would need some really good cleaning, without knowing how to efficiently do said really good cleaning.

It has been said in ALL videos i have seen so far - do not use an oven for things like that that if you intend to use for food after it.

Get a new one, it isn't worth the risk of getting a serious poisoning from metals and other harmful stuff. Search for used ovens, they are not that expensive.

Iirc RoHS came in 2006, so graphics cards after 2006 shouldn't have leaded tin inside them. I used my home oven for reflowing a couple of old graphics cards and I haven't died of lead poisoning yet.

You will be fine. Ive done it plenty of times with xbox 360s. And my oven gets used for food atleast twice a day (we dont have a microwave).

 

The chances of you getting some sort of metal poisoning from this is pretty slim. You breathe in worse things just walking around most towns.

 

You can buy commercial oven cleaner if you are really worried about it though.

RoHS includes exemptions for lead solder. It's also not enforced everywhere, it's a EU thing. Additionally, lead isn't the only toxic thing going on in a video card.

I hope you're old enough to have your own house and that it was your own oven. Can't image your parents will be too thrilled about having to buy a new oven

very inspiring :)

Vinegar works really well too for cleaning ovens or flat tops. Basically anything acidic.

 

Its going to smell horrible though. I wait till after customers have left and use it and it amazing how well it works.

If it was my oven I'd probably just clean it really well with some solvent, then follow up with some soap and water. The quantity of toxic material released from baking the card is so small (if any at all) that a good scrub will remove it all. Replacing the whole oven is way overreacting IMO.
