Question about Emerson MW8102SS 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
I have the above listed model. When you turn it on (it only does this sometimes) it makes a loud poppping sound inside. I have tried several things. If you take the turntable's glass plate out, it does fine. When you replace it, it makes the popping sound again. Also the heating of food is always way over heated. Anybody else had the same problem? Any suggestions?
The popping sound is the turntable not being attached fully. Look through the turntable and see if it is attached properly.

(I'm thinking that's model number MW8115SS?)
Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.
Thewaveguide cover (also called a spatter shield) is usually about thesize of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.
It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!
The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.
If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.
Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.
If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced. It provides important protection for the magnetron.
