Question about Microwave Ovens
A burning smell and sparks occurred in my Whirlpool MT1100SHQ-1 microwave oven yesterday, and I now have a rather large (quarter-sized) burnt area in the metal. The metal is flaking off, possibly all the way through the metal plate. There is also soot on the top of the microwave above the burned area. Is it safe to continue to use the microwave as it is? Is it possible to fix/replace the plate, or is that unsafe?
Ok stop useing oven and unplug! THIS CAN BE FIXED!!! Go to a home improvment store and buy a small bottle of white liquid enamal....Clean up the area that is missing and flakeing and then apply the enamel over the hole and let dry overnight! now that the exposed metal is covered back up it is safe to use and will not spark or cause any more soot!
PLEASE rate my response to your question!
