Question about Kenmore Microwave Ovens
We have a Kenmore Microwave Oven( model#721.61282) procured in October, 2001. Over the past two weeks, on several occasions, after 4-6 seconds, we noted a flash which we believe is due to arcing. Should this be a safety concern? What might be causing this? Is it time for a new oven? Thanks for your info.
Look in cavity for any burn marks. If burn marks are present sand and paint area. You have to use paint made for microwaves. If no burn marks, Flash coming from magnetron and it would be time to replace. Yes it can be a safety concern, I would not use until fixed.
