Question about Miele M613GSS 800 Watts Convection / Microwave Oven
The panel on the roof of my miele M613G microwave has started to spark and burn - is this fixable or will I need a new oven
I've got a Miele microwave and I had that very same problem. On the top of the cooking chamber there's a round mica insulator. That insulator covers a wave spreader, that is basically a aluminium fan mounted on a teflon spindle. What happens is that the spreader is either bent or loose. As the microwave runs, the spreader gets electrically charged (charged by the microwaves cooking your food) and when in gets too close to the metal chassis, a spark jumps from the spreader to the chassis.
The way to fix it is quite simple: you have to remove the mica insulator by unscrewing some philips-headed screws from the inside of your oven (if they happen to be stuck, just remove the cover of the microwave and WD-40 the nuts where they're screwed on). Then, you'll see the cheap aluminum spreder. Either screw it tight or bend it a bit so that it doesn't touch the chassis at any time or the mica insulator. Put the mica back in, screw it down gently and smile.
