Smoke coming from under oven


You need a new microwave or you need an appliance repairman. Usually smoke in an electronic product means that there is a short in the wiring or overheating circuit board. If it is still under warranty take it back where you got it.

New sanyo microwave, steam or smoke coming out when cooking from 1 minute


Steam is OK as it means whatever is in there is boiling furiously, it may need turning off at that point!
Smoke though means it has gone too far. Check the cooking times used and the recommended cooking times on the packet along with the adjustment for the power of your oven.

We put a plastic jar with a very small piece of foil on the rim and the microwave started to smoke. it might have run 30 seconds before we noticed it making a funny noise. it is a 1200 watt inverter


Hello Dwight,

You may have damaged the microwave. Since the oven cavity is a tuned cavity, introducing metal into it can wreck havoc on the magnetron (microwave generator itself).

Did you happen to notice if the smoke was from the plastic jar (plastic heating up from the high temp of the foil ring), or if it was the actual microwave smoking (and not blowing smoke out of the oven cavity from the plastic jar)?

Mr. Muscle Kitchen cleaner will remove the smoke. It won't hurt the plastic. Just make sure to either wear rubber gloves or wash your hands soon after cleaning off the smoke residue. It will make the skin on your hands / fingers slick and then dry after your done. Let the cleaner sit for about a minute before trying to wipe off the smoke residue.
