It's actually a stirrer. Its purpose is to scatter the microwaves to ensure even cooking, similar to the way a turntable does in other models. Having a stirrer instead of a turntable allows for a bigger dish.

 

The sparking is usually caused by deposits or grease or food debiris which heat, reheat and arc.

 

If the oven is used very long without the cover, that debris and grease can get onto the magnetron and ruin it.

SOURCE: l am looking for spare

Yes, those are 1- or 2-piece nylon rivets. Sounds like they held the stirrer cover or waveguide cover on.

The original Toshiba part number was 325541052 but they are no longer available.

You can probably find suitable replacement nylon rivets at a local hardware or home improvement store if you take one with you or at least measure the diameter of the hole they need to go into.

I'd say they are about 1/8' to 3/16" if I remember correctly.

Or at the same stores you can get some nylon screws a little bit fatter than the hole and screw them into the holes. You will have to force them, but they will work.

Nylon is transparent to microwave energy.

Good luck.

SOURCE: What is a stirrer cover

That burning part is referred to as the stirrer cove, unless you have one similar on the bottom.It's like plastic pie plate. The fan stirs the microwaves and heat in simple terms.

Unless food is burning off it , I would be replacing the unit or have a qualified, trained microwave tech service it. You need a microwave leak detector to work on them safely. Given the cost most are disposable these days. Be Safe on this one

Top inside microwave is falling down


Microwaves sometimes have a stirrer fan fitted inside the top of the chamber. This is usually hidden from view by a fairly flimsy plastic cover - and yes sometimes they do fall down when age and contamination has done it's work.

The cover has probably lost the small tabs that engage in the brackets to hold it up. The cover is there to prevent food splashes getting onto the fan and to hide it away. You could replace it or remove it altogether if you only place covered food in your microwave.

Not heating


Remove the outer cover (pull the power plug first) and look for a blown fuse. If found, replace the high voltage diode and the 'stirrer' (a fan-like device located within the sheet metal wave-guide near the opening in the cooking cavity where the microwaves come into it). This stirrer has a plastic bearing that frequently arcs over and permanently shorts out the microwaves which blows the fuse. If no blown fuse is found, look for a loose or defective door-interlock micro-switch.

The microwave starts, then stops after a few seconds, and smells


Remove the cover after pulling the power plug. Check the transformer and large capacitor for signs of overheating. If they look ok, then remove the sheet metal wave-guide from the area where the energy enters the cooking cavity. Under the wave guide is a fan-like device called a stirrer that has a plastic bearing. This stirrer bearing is commonly arced over (when the oven is operated with nothing to heat in it). Usually the bearing looks good, but has arced internally. Replace the stirrer as a unit. The machine can be operated with the case off and a cup of water for a load, but keep you hands clear. Look for smoke.

Ge Microwave space saver over range working but


It is a good possibility that the stirrer has failed. In the top of cabinet is a round cover,there is a small round plug in the edge of it,pry plug out and put it in safe place,rotate the cover < twist locks > gently let it down and stirrer will be either setting on cover or still attached. If you notice any damage< it is a round aluminum disc that is flat > then you need a new one. If you don't see any damage put it back in < put in hole and turn until you feel it line up with shaft and push into place,< gently >.Make note of position and put cover back on < stirrer does not lock on shaft so you have to hold it up until you get cover under it in most cases. Run a short cycle and remove cover to see if it turned at all. If not the motor is bad < turns stirrer during operation>. This is the first time that question has been asked of me and it is the only thing that I can think of if it heats glass and not food.

Coupler has stopped turning


The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

But first you should also be sure that the internal cooling fan is working, because in this model, that's where the stirrer and turntable motors get their power - from a tap on the cooling fan motor!

Probably the easiest way to check this is to remove your stirrer cover, place a cup of water on the tray, then microwave for about a minute.

Watch through the glass and see if the metal stirrer is slowly rotating.

If not, the problem may be a bad cooling fan.

It is vital that the cooling fan runs, or the magnetron will be destroyed, too.

If you're not sure how to remove your stirrer cover, it's covered in your owner's manual.

If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

This is the stirrer cover. It is important. It is to keep food particles and grease out of the stirrer and waveguide area.

If grease or food particles build up, they can arc, which will cause burn damage to the cover, stirrer, chassis, and/or magnetron.

If you have any arcing, you should remove it for cleaning. Be careful of sharp edges.

The stirrer's job is to stir the microwaves to ensure even heating, even when a turntable is not present or not used.
