Please clarify -

Do you have a display?
Will the microwave heat anything?
Where did the smoke come from? Did it have an odor (burned electrical), or was it steam?

Had a power surge, microwave started to smoke. Reset power in the house and microwave works fine. 1) Is there anything I should be concerned about? 2) If I continue to use it, can it catch on fire?


Microwave ovens have a lot of safety devices built in. Not sure why or where it was smoking from but without removing the cabinet and having a visual look for something burnt, it would be impossible to say. If the machine is now working OK, ??? who knows. All I can say is that for the next few future uses of the machine, I wouldn't leave it unattended in case there is something that has failed. Chances of fire in a microwave is possible but this is usually something that you are cooking that catches fire, not the machine itself. I have seen the mica cover plate burn in the cooking compartment. It may be that ? Its a small squarish plate that is usually on the side of the oven compartment. It stops food etc and splatters from going into whats known as the waveguide tunnel (The part where the microwaves come out) On some machines, this cover may be plastic. Have a close look inside the oven compartment for a cover that has burn marks or discoloration.

Smoke and burning plastic smell in microwave oven


Burning plastic, not food? A component has overheated badly then, with a plastic case. The main suspect would be the high voltage capacitor in the magnetron supply. This is cheap and easily replaced ONLY IF you know what you are doing and can diagnose the fault. If you don't then DO NOT take the case off the unit as fatal voltages can be present inside even if the unit is unplugged.

I'd just buy another, as they are generally uneconomical to have repaired by a service tech.

Microwave oven does not heat up


This seems to be a common problem with microwaves, the problem is likely the magnetron "heats food" and the heart of the system. If the oven is five years or more I would suggest a new one.

My LG microwave Model No MG555F made a loud explossive sound while warming rice gruel and continued to work normally; the incident repeated while I was warming fried fish; the machine continued to wor


The sound you heard was an internal ARC/Short in the Magnetron which creates the microwaves, This is an imminent sign of complete failure, Due to the decrease in prices of new microwaves it is no longer economical to repair them so start looking for a good special on microwaves.

I have a 3-year old Amana microwave installed above my stove. Last night I was baking two potatoes in the microwave. I noticed that the microwave sounded "louder" than normal. After about 13...


No! But it will need to be repaired. Did you wrap the potatoes in tin foil? The reason for the smoke needs to be found and repaired. Smoking means a short or a part shorted, failed, or wires touching another wire that did not blow any fuss.That is not good.
Trained technicians can help the mfg improve their products if they find the problem and report it to the Mfg.

My GE builtin microwave oven makes a buzzing sound, even when you just turn the surface light on and when you try to program it and, of course, doesn't heat. The repairman says it needs a new control...


Working inside a microwave is not something Average Joe should attempt. There are potentially LETHAL amounts of stored energy that needs to be properly discharged before repairs can begin.

The repairs in this case are more than 60% of a NEW one - so it is advisable to put the $$ toward a new unit with warranty. 2001 makes it 9 years old. Typically manufacturers don't support after 10 years.

Thanks!!

In the cases I've seen, the fan starts operating and sounds like the oven is cooking. This is usually caused by one or more of the interlock switches being out of adjustment.

The magnatron is covered by warranty for 5 years and I just spoke with an authorized Panasonic repair center who said the inverter is covered on this unit depending on the manufacture date, like april 04 to october 05 approximately.

Panasonic NN-T694SF smoke, shuts itself off


In most cases, this is a problem with the inverter or a bad transfotmer.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer. You can find one here:
