Question about Thermador MBBS Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Sparks aplenty! I too have sparks from my Thermadore MBBS/01. They are coming from the right side panel as well. I wonder if this is a manufacturing default or not. Anyway, I guess I can fix this myself thanks to this wonderful website. THANK YOU!

This is usually just due to grease or food particles stuck somewhere in the cavity of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

The waveguide cover (also called a spatter shield) is usually about the size 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.

If so, please double-check your model number on the tag so we can help you better.

Mbbs 01 thermador micro oven: timer counts down, lights go on, but no heat, no fan and turntable does not turn. is it a fuse?


Key clue is table does not move---All microwaves with a table have a lever switch that is engaged when door closes--only can get at from inside the unit----it prevents the unit from operation if door not closed.

What happens from closing door a lot is the switch with a lever arm can come loose or even if snapped into a plastic holder break out of the holder.

IF this it is not too expensive a repair.

Fire inside oven during operation on right side metal plate


Arcing is caused by the build up of grease that is converted to carbon. Clean the baked on carbon from the oven cavity. If regular cleaning doesn't remove the carbon, sand it away and touch up with a similiar color paint.

Sparks in the interior while microwave is on. Sparks come from the right side where there is a "cardboard like" cover over an opening.


IF THIS COVER IS DIRTY IT WILL SPARK. IF CLEANING IT DOES NOT HELP IT MAYBE CRACKED OR THE STIRRER BLADE MAY BE OFF

I need to buy a new MBBS Thermador Microwave


I spent the better part of three days trying to find a microwave that will fit and it's hard because so many are on line only. Last night I successfully installed the 2.2 cu. ft. GE profile counter top unit with inverter technology. The unit is an exact match, the Thermador even fits in the GE box with the styrofoam! I installed the venting materials for the side and rear vents and the platform at the bottom. I put the clips and decorative molding on and it's perfect! I found it in stock at Lowe's for $198. I took me about 45 minutes total to install. If I can do it, anyone can - 48 year old mom with 5 kids!

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.

The waveguide cover is usually about the size 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.

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.

You should be able to order one here.
