Question about Whirlpool GH7155XHS Microwave Oven
MY MICORWAVE IS MAKING AN ELECTRICAL POPPING SOUND AND HAS A SMALL SCORCHED SPOTT ON THE INSIDE BACK WALL. WAS WONDERING IF IT WAS WORTH FIXING OR I SHOULD JUST REPLACE IT. UNIT IS ABOUT 3 YRS OLD
Hi there - I assume you have a rack in the Microwave. What happens is the rack due to putting something in and out of the Microwave some times wears against the back wall of the cooking chamber. As this happens it wears through the paint and exposes the metal casework.
You then get microwave arcing between the metal rack in the microwave and the cooking compartment casing which gives that spitting popping sound. I would say get some white model paint and paint over the scorched spot (as long as its not gone so far as to wear a hole in the case work).
Wait for it to dry and stick the rack back in and try again to warm up a cup of coffee or something and see if it stops.
Also if you pull the grill slightly forward in the holders towards the door and test it you may notice that it doesn't pop as much so I would paint it and pull the grill forward and see if you still get the issue.
Best of luck.
