Mouse Urine Odor in Range and Oven?

I have a mouse infestation and they somehow got into my oven/range and now when I turn on the oven it smells like mouse urine. I am desperate to figure out how to get rid of them and the scent. We've been trapping and my cat is working overtime! Also, how the heck do I get rid of the scent?

I would try cleaning with straight vinegar.

I had similar issue, I took stove apart (took pic. As what it originally looked like to make sure I put it back together). I replace the insolation for it was all torned full of my dogs food and mine fesis ( it smelled awful). I believe that's why I could not get the smell out. I washed with vinegar an alcohol. I am going to give it another wash before it goes back into the house. It's a process. Hope this helps

I had the same problem! This weekend I cleaned under the range with baking soda only. I also washed all the drip pans with baking soda. The smell is completely gone! Hope this helps!


Also, we have tried a lot of things to get rid of the mice without success, but I read on another website to try "cab fresh." We found it at Tractor Supply for $15. That was more than we wanted to spend, so I don't actually know how effective it is myself.

Did you mix the baking soda with water?

Good and bad news; Cab Fresh worked for our mouse problem for a full year! (2016) It was worth every penny. The active ingredient is Balsam Fir Oil. I bought it at Ace Hardware for about the same amount of money. I followed the directions on it's use exactly. Bad news-last year (2017) I couldn't find it in any store and when I did find it and bought some, it didn't work as well.


Other peoples' comments were similar-it didn't work like before for them so I suspect something changed all though the representative from the company said they didn't do anything differently. Anyway, I think the Fresh Cab is worth a try. Hope it works for you.

we have been living in a nightmare for a year. this is a rental, and they kept doing things to get rid of the mice, but not enough then we realized we had rats. he finally called an exterminator who is slowly trapping them one by one. we have dogs so we can't do poison and i am reluctant to do the glue traps ( i think theyre inhumane).


but the rat traps are working. slowly you may have to call an exterminator. there's 2 parts to the problem, blocking off how they're getting in and then killing the ones that are there. it can be expensive but it has to be done. i sympathize with you it is a nightmare. I will also try these oven pee smell tips. good luck
