SOURCE: we have a ge microwave. Sparks came out of

Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the mica waveguide cover.

The waveguide cover is usually about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.

Sometimes it is the ceiling of the oven.

Your owner's manual may address this. You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

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.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart or Lowe's.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.

Massive sparking and noisy when switched on to heat


Hi,
There are 2 things that cause the massive sparking:
1. you placed inside the microwave oven a metal plate or one with silvery or golden drawings;
2. the mica sheet that covers the magnetron window is compromised (has holes, it is cracked) or it is covered with burnt (carbonised) food.
You have to carefully inspect the mica sheet and wash or replace it, if necessary. Hope that helps.
Regards,
Dan

My Microwave is arcing due to its demaged Mica sheet. Can I replace it with any other ordinary Mica sheet cut to its original size & fit in its place? Will it work? Or are there special Mica sheets...


Hello.

Yes you can buy mica sheets made for microwaves at appliance repair/parts shops.Scissors work well for this. A razor knife might be needed for notches etc. If so, several shallow cuts work better than trying for one deep one, as your not as apt to slip. I usually put the leftover material in a plastic bag and tape it to the bottom of the unit so I could find it the next time.

Hope this helps you.

My Goldstar MA 781M microwave has a "mica" like


That sheet is called the Waveguide Cover and its function is to stop debris and food entering the aerial and magnetron.
Replacement is essential and must be made of mica.
It can be purchased from a dealer at a reasonable cost.
Google the manufacturer and find a dealer.
Hope that helps.

I need a microwave guide cover for model mw8115ss


Buy a sheet of mica. It's cheap and easy to work with. Draw and cut a new cover from a sheet and replace the damaged one. There's a example of how cheap mica is (I just used a sheet like that today on my Miele microwave).

Don't try punching holes in mica, always drill them gently. It will easily flake.

Emerson model MW8997w sparks when turned.


I bought a piece of mica from an appliance repair business and cut out a new piece. Microwave is working fine. Apparently food carbonizes on the mica and causes the microwave to spark. If anyone has this problem, call around and find a repair shop that buys mica by the sheet, rather than paying for a piece from the manufacturer.
