Neff microwave h7871 arcing

Last week we found some ceramic bits on the bottom of the microwave and the antenae now seems exposed & arcs when the microwave power is switched on. Is this just a cover for the microwave antenae and what's it called?

This antenna is called the stirrer here in the US. Its purpose is to stir the microwaves to ensure even cooking.

The cover is usually made of plastic, as opposed to ceramic, and it keeps grease and food particles off the stirrer to protect it from arcing, which can damage the surfaces and the magnetron.

The stirrer, stirrer cover and the area around 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 in appliance parts stores and hardware stores.

Also, the stirrer will arc if it is not turning when the oven is cooking. That may mean a bad stirrer motor.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced. It provides important protection for the magnetron and stirrer.

You can download Neff manuals here.

Even if you don't find your exact model, they should all have contact info for Neff in case you need to call them to get spares / parts.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Sparking inside microwave door


There is exposed metal, when magnetron is running it will arc if there is exposed metal in the interior cavity which is more common, I have not seen this inside microwave door, inspect door carefully when you open it to see if there are bare spots. The manufacture use to sell microwave cavity paint to prevent this very problem, if this is not corrected it will short out the magnetron.

Unit was arcing. Checked owners manual and cleaned sensor panel as directed. Stopped arcing. Worked ok for a week. Went to use last night and control panel would light and seemed ok but oven would not turn...


It is quite possible the magnetron has burned out, when it arcs it puts a tremendous strain and causes it to overheat very quickly. On top of that you found a burned mark behind the pad which is not good, so there are least two problems that must be addressed perhaps more. In any case it may be cheaper to replace the microwave oven at this point.

We've owned this miscrowave for about 8 years. just recently, every time we've tried to use it pops and flashes light. It seems to be coming from the panel on the right


you may have exposed metal in the microwave so it arcs. You will need to cover the exposed metal with ceramic paint. Just sand the area down so its smooth, then apply ceramic paint. that should solve your problem.

Replace light bulb on the Neff H7871 combined oven and microwave.


The bulb is positioned at the top of the oven, accessible only from the outside. You'll need to pull off the top and bottom trim strips, remove the bottom trim strip locators, remove 2 fixing screws from the left edge of the oven (with door open), and the 2 fixing screws from behind the top trim strip. The oven should then just slide out. You only need to pull it out 6 inches or so to gain access to the bulb cover. You'll need a T20 driver to remove the cover, then the bulb unscrews as it has an SES fitting. Bob

I accidentally covered a plate with foil in the microwave. there was Arcing (no fire) and now there is black marks etched where the foil touched the sides. The cavity seems unharmed though, it seems if I...


Sometimes the arcing itself will cause black marks inside the oven. The places where the foil was melted, (touching), likely left small metal deposits, possibly now, impregnated in the surface. It is important to remove these if possible to avoid further arcing. Remove these then test to make sure the oven is functioning properly. If so, continue to use.

1. Open the door.

2. Take out the 2 screws just behind the handle, on the inside of the door, thedoor should flop down at the handle end.

3. Hold the door handle and pull the door out. It is only housed in by a slipin hooks at the bottom end.

4. Once you remove the door you will see the inner metal mesh and the inner doorbehind it.

5. Remove the 16 screws holding the inner glass with a special star type screwdriver bit no T30.

6. Once you done that the glass housing holding the inner glass can becarefully prised free and taken off the inner door assembly.

7. Once you done that remove and inner glass, and be careful to leave the glassseal intact, clean around the frame housing and the seal then replace the newinner glass and reverse the process.

PS. Be careful of the inner door once you've removed the outer door, asthe hinges holding the inner door tend to shut quickly as there is less weighton the hinges.

It will do the job if you follow these instructions. AL (srahbah@hotmail.com)

Power Problems on NEFF H7871 Combi Microwave


It would seem there is a bad connection in the fuse holder or in the wall socket or in the microwave itself. Maybe you can narrow it down to the microwave by trying other devices in the wall socket. If it's the microwave, it's time to call for serivce.
