Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I used my Breville Mirrorer Combination Microwave as a convection oven and after 15 minutes the glass plate exploded into 7 sharp pieces. Why? It's only 15 months old and what do I do about getting a new glass plate?

Normally when you cook in convection mode, you are supposed to remove the glass tray and use a metal or ceramic tray if I'm not mistaken.

You should be able to contact the manufacturer via the information in your owner's manual.

If you don't still have that, I would contact the dealer from whom you bought the oven.

Do I keep the glass plate in the microwave when on convection oven mode


If it came with the oven a definite yes as it will be able to withstand the heat during the convection setting. If a ordinary plate is used it must be rated for use in ovens as it will become very hot on convection oven mode. So, if it can withstand use in a ordinary oven it will work just as good in a convection oven.

Seating the glass turntable can be tricky. After installing the turtable, rotate it slightly to confirm it is seated completely.

I bought a microwave at an aution. No owner manual Kenmore model #970-86116-001. It has an element in the top and has buttons that say microwave,convection, convection roast etc. There is no glass plate at...


If you press "convection" the oven works just like a regular oven except that the element is on top. In "microwave" it works like a microwave oven. All you have to do is decide which mode you want to use and then punch in the time and hit "start". The glass plate is not really a necessity as long as you make sure there is a load in the oven when you are "microwaving".

Glass turntable in tricity tmc209 says "microwave only" What do I use for convection or combi cooking? Does turntable still need to rotate for convection cooking?


definately dont use the standard glass plate for convectional 'oven' cooking, as it will shatter. i have had TWO plates shatter so far before realising they should only be used for microwave cooking.

Heat's water great , won't pop corn


It may be a food placement issue or possibly a bad humidity sensor.

I always recommend that folks put food off-center on the turntable (not in the center) to assure more even heating.

It's a stirring action, so imagine how inefficient it would be to stir just by twirling a spoon in the center of your coffee!

Also, when you put your food off-center, you're not putting it in the same spot every time. That will help prevent repeated heating of the the same spot on the glass, which can lead to weakness and cracking. Microwave popcorn gets hot enough to do that.

We have the entire service manual at our site if your or a friend want to look that over: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r820bc_bk_bw_sm.pdf

If you need a new sensor, you can order Sharp parts from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com

Please write back with more details if you need further help.
