    Thank you Philiplys, thats very helpful, I just need to find spare parts for this machine now.
    I spoke with Miele and they didn't really have any clue - especially about the plate that seems to be on the roof of the inside of the microwave.
    They suggested the replacement model M8151 at nearly £500.

    Lets hope the spares are a little cheaper.
    Once again - thanks

    Hi Philip
    I've tried again and again but Miele will not give out a parts list, however they have sent me an exploded diagram of the machine itself.
    I believe the guy I was speaking with has highlighted what 'may' be needed after repeating your thoughts of what could be wrong with the machine.
    I may just bite the bullet and buy some parts.....
    Thanks for your help, if you would like a copy I can email it to you.

    Kind regards

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.

These ovens are favourite for this, it is something to do with the stirrer blades. the top casing can be removed and replaced

    Miele and other microwave manufacturers are very unhelpful, they only want their engineers to carry out the repairs. however they are required to make spares available for 10 years after the last .

    production date.

    you need to keep on to them and request a spare parts list and then request the part from them

    best of luck keep me informed

My microwave is about 7 years old and has recently started sparking when I heat things in it. Can it be saved or is it best to buy a new one?

sparking usually relates to i) using metal in the cavity or ii) some burnt food on the roof iii) the waveguide cover 'mica' panel is burning iv) door area enamel has been damaged. After 7 years you may want to bin it and get a new one as they are now so cheap, fixing them is usually more expensive.

Sparks when micro turned on. it appears the pannel

Yes if you can find someone to supply it as a spare part. Clean any grease or debris from behind it too. Often there are little plastic rivets that hold it on. You might as well order them too. If it burnt too bad there will be a carbonisation on the panel too which must be cleaned off as it will attract the microwave energy.

Before ordering anything, remove the burnt panel and run the microwave with just a cup of water in it to make sure it still works fine.

Whatever you do, do not open up a microwave oven cabinet, they are very dangerous inside. If you cant remove the panel from within the cooking cavity then leave well alone and get an engineer to look at it.

Microwave sparks inside oven in the area of the sealed compartment when it is started

If unit was run for long time with food on walls and not cleaned off, it is possible that the unit was burned in a spot where the food was and if there is metal frame under that part for the finish it will spark. Check closely for burns, if it is sparking due to that problem, junk it. It is a dangerous condition.

I'm getting a flash inside the oven and the plastic on the inside roof has a burn mark. I removed the plastic cover over the micro wave generator and it did not spark. is the oven dying? It is a 1983 0ver...

It looks like the metal part inside the oven is exposed to the high frequency rf waves. this may sound strange but try coating the metal part with fresh paint. remember no metal inside the oven will stand the waves created inside the oven the spark u see is the waves hitting the exposed metal part inside the oven
