Microwave waveguide spatter shield burned through


Which Material is Safe to use for homemade "spatter shield" shielding the microwave waveguide.?

magic chef mcd1311st microwave oven has a "spatter shield" shielding the microwave waveguide from splattered food.

This is blackened in back and a hole burned through it --- caused by occasional arcing of the microwaves (bright light and loud noise)

Magic Chef does not have a replacement part.
I could cut one out the same shape to replace original.

    repairclinic.com reports





    Part is actually available from mfr (although if you don't fidn the part number they may claim to not have it) but it costs about $18 + shipping. That + cost of new light bjulb + labor involved to install light bulb, + reports of lots of arcing found by others, makes this repair not worth the money. I'm still looking for which materials are used for the waaveguide cover, so maybe we can make a free or cheap replacement.

Sparking when heating the food.what could be the problem.


More than likely the waveguide cover is the culprit as I suspect you have checked the obvious.
REplacement of this cover is critical to the health of the magnetron.
It is made of Mica and should not cost much to replace.
I hope that answers your question.

There is a rectangular cover on the ceiling of the microwave interior that covers what appears to be a vent. It may be called a waveguide cover. Mine burned up and I need to find a replacement


It is the waveguide cover. Some manufacturers call it a splatter shield or spatter shield.

It will need to be replaced. It provides critical protection for the magnetron.

Try Ace Appliance who can cross reference most of these megatron tubes. Most of the time, its getting the access to the tube that will take up most of your time inside the microwave. Also, another good place to find these parts is Daewoo website.

Probably a bad magnetron tube. If you dont hear that tell tell buzz when it is running then that is a good indication of a bad mag tube.

Inside side panel has flames coming off of it


Quite often this is 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.

LG microwave oven


As long as the waveguide itself isn't damaged, you should be able to replace the shield without issue... That shield only prevents food from splashing onto the waveguide itself and is not part of the microwave RF protection... Check your local hardware store for touch up paint.. shouldn't matter what brand as long as it contains rust inhibitors.. Good luck...

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.

(In some models it is a larger stirrer cover type made of thicker plastic in the ceiling of the oven)

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.
