Question about Microwave Ovens
This has happened to 2 previous different brands?? first arcing, or some sort of bright light, and smoke, then on my old microwaves, the plastic in the middle under the plate actually caught fire. The first model which was 2nd hand and in perfect condition, was in use for a year when there was a sudden loud pop and a massive puff of dark smoke came out from underneath the microwave!!
I am wondering if this an electric circuit/wiring problem in my home. If it makes a difference the microwaves have always been positioned on a thick sturdy kind of shelf, but above a very vigorous washing machine when on full spin??
Another fact to mention that maybe of some relevance is that i have an electric pay as u go type system, that has shut off at times, and when the electricity is turned back on the microwave has still been plugged into the mains, although the arc/smoke problems haven't occurred straight after??
You just need to remove the stirrer cover from time to time to clean off any accumulated grease from it and the parts behind it.
And be sure to clean up any spills quickly.
Your owner's manual should cover that.
If for some reason you do not have your owner's manual, please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you find it.
