Blue sparks from my panasonic over the range microwave

Hi, Yesterday I was using the microwave and it randomly shut of with a loud pop. Apparently it blew the fuse (melted it to bits). We have installed one of those trip fuses now and we are able to keep it running. HOWEVER, it then decided to shoot blue sparks out of the control panel at my husband. So we talked nicely to the microwave and now no more blue sparks. But now it will run for about 5 to 15 seconds. All depending on how you hold your tounge... and then shut off.. but the power still stays on. The internal light works and so does the range light. ANY ideas? Called Panasonic but they are closed due to the snow.. (apparently Panasonic doesn't make snow blowers). If I want someone to come to my house to give me a FREE quote it will cost $80. If I take it to someone it will cost me $20 for them to give me a FREE quote. Please help!

Yesterday, I went to use the microwave and as I pushed start, I heard a loud pop and saw sparks behind the vent cover. The microwave light and turn table work fine, but it does not heat. Is it repairable?


sounds like your magnetron went out . check how old it is, sometimes the manufacture gives a 5-10 yr warrenty on part if no warranty on unit then it may not be worth fixing depending on how much u spent on it. part roughly 89.99-139.99 labor 85-165.00 depending on who u use and were u live. hope this helps . thanx..

I was boiling water on the electric range beneath my FRIGIDAIRE FMV157GC 1.5 Cu. Ft. Microwave Oven when there was a loud snapping/popping noise occured. I immediately shut off the microwave and thought...


Hi,

I would say the transformer for the power supply has probably shorted, or another major component in the power supply has shorted - This may be repairable if easily spotted, but most likely will not be cost efective.

Microwaved buzzed then fan came on


At that age, a magnetron failure would not surprise me, but I looking at the service manual, the only way the hood fan could be on is if its relay on the control board is on.

I would bet you have a problem on the control board.

I can help with that, but please feel free to contact me directly through our site link via our Fixya link at http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Popping and shooting sparks


Hi There!
Check behind the "Wave Guide Cover" on the inside cavity. There may be moisture or food residue behind it. Should be a cover that is plastic or Mica. Really strange that it's sparking being new. Also check that you use plates without gold or silver trimmings (Crockery or porcelein). This will also cause sparking. Remember that microwaves will always go to the first organic source in its path. The wave guide cover, if soiled, is very close to the tip of the Magnetron and will therefor result in arcing. Good Luck, JUS004
