SOURCE: After changing a blown oven light, the clock works but nothing else turns on, including the fan, light, microwave

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

SOURCE: burnt ceiling

Yes it can. There should be a mica cover on the top of the microwave. Usually grease will build up there and when it gets to hot will burn thru the paint. That was the buzzing you heard. I have used white touch up paint in a bottle with brush in the cap to fix the bare sheet metal. Then you can reorder the mica cover. Around 20 dollars.

SOURCE: Burning smell from microwave

This is the waveguide cover / stirrer cover.

Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!

The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced. It provides important protection for the magnetron.

Please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you in obtaining parts.

With the symptoms you mention, I would suspect:

- loose or corroded connection at the magnetron
- bad magnetron
- shorted high voltage diode

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

Micro board is burnt up


Anthony, I have purchased what they call wave guide material from a company called QB Products. You can try Google to find if there is someone close to you that might have what you need. Catalog that I have is old but the number for the smallest size they list is 40QBP1012. That is for a piece 10" x 12". Hope this helps you. Make sure that when you take out the old cover that you clean the area underneath because what causes the burning is grease and food particles that get splattered up there and they get very hot and start causing the burning that you see.

What you are meaning is the waveguide within the cabin which could have been burnt due to food particles that got entangled.

My emerson microwave #mw8999rd shoots out fire from a silver piece of cardboard thats on the righthand inside of my microwave oven. whats with that?


There is electrical problem in your microwave heating circuit. This is a fire hazard and you should stop using this microwave and unplug from the outlet. This is not something you can fix and the fuse does not protect your system anymore. The best choice is to purchase a new one and throw this away.

Menu bar shows code H 97 on model number NN-CD989S. started to cook microwave meal, the oven madepoping sounds and showed the H 97 then won't turn back on. there is a small sokey area below the...


This oven is programmed with a self diagnostic failure code system which help for troubleshooting -H97 and as described above "mica piece and burnt smell" sound like Inverter Power Supply. DO NOT try to repair or re-adjust preset volume on the board. It is very dangerous to repair or adjust without sufficient test equipment because this circuit handles very high voltage and very high current Operating a misaligned inverter circuit is dangerous due to the Very HIGH voltage and current that is produced by this board.

Defective board must be replaced with new one -INVERTER POWER SUPPLY.

The cardboard foil piece is falling apart. Is it dangerous if don't put any?


That is a piece of Mica that is called the Wave Guide Cover.
It is very important as it stops food particles from entering the magnetron output aerial.
You must replace it. Contact an appliance repair centre for replacement.

My Sanyo 1000W microwave is shooting sparks!!!


you need to replace the cavity cover "the cardboard like",the antenna bearing set "the gun barrel like" and the gear motor.If the "gun barrel like" is stuck up because the gear motor is not rotating excessive heat will occur inside the microwave thus burning the cavity cover.

I have a sharp micro wave oven. Occasionally, when some foods are cooked or heated, you can see small bursts of blue flame. What I should do ? I only use microwave safe containers.


You probably have a burnt wave guide cover. Look inside the microwave either on the side or on the top, it's a square piece of mica board, and you should see a burnt spot on it. You should be able to replace it fairly easy with the model number I can check on a replacement for you.
