If the is a convection model then the covection coill will smell that way if there is a geese build up and should be ok to use. however you should only smell that if you are using the convection mode.

Just had the same problem. It was an electrical short and the repairman said that it could have burned the kitchen wall and been a catastrophy. Get rid of it immediately!

MIcrowave emits an electrical smell while cooking. It still cooks, but has started emitting an odor recently when in use.


Is the smell ionized (the outside smell of a cold winter morning air) or more of an electronic component burning??? if it's more of an ionized smell it could be normal, (if the smell is strong) it could be a leaking high voltage cable (electric arching) bad insulator, if it's more of an electronic component burning smell, it could be a overheating component, in both cases you should have it checked by a professional technician...

Cheers!

My microwave, Whirlpool Gh9185XLT-1 is not heating and making an electrical burning smell. Can you help me?


No I'm afraid we can't, In view of the danger of fire you should stop using the microwave immediately and have a professional repairer look at it for you. If you can smell burning then there is obviously a component or connector getting hot inside , and there are extremely high voltages present.
I know that is not what you hoped to hear, sorry.
I have no idea where (in which country) you live but why not try a search on google for microwave repairers in your area or look in the local paper. Try to find someone who deals in philips.

I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Smell gas- does it have a pilot light?


I'm not sure about your question, if it is an ordinary ELECTRIC microwave oven you are not suppose to smell GAS although you could smell ION gas if the high voltage is leaking trough the insulator this means STOP USING IT and have it checked by a professional it could burst into flames... or it could be food leftover burning inside the chamber...

Good luck!
