The round peice in top of unit is a cover for the stirrer wich moves waves around for even cooking. The reason for it melting is almost certainly there is not enough paint in cavity and waves are shorting out to metal.CALL the manufacturer and depending on age of unit they may replace it free

What is the cause of the smell of burnt plastic coming from my kenmore elite microwave?


Frequently this is caused by a loose connector to a thermal protection device (a TCO) or some other connector that has a plastic sleeve over it. The connector is loose, which is causing heat, which is melting the plastic. You would have to remove the cover to find the bad device and connector. This is a job for a professional microwave repairman.

Grease dripping from bottom of microwave


sometimes when a microwave is mounted above a range some people dont always consider that you have to take into consideration that you have to go by the heat rating guidelines because it will melt the white lithium grease off the gearing and it can possibly melt some of the protective coating from the circuit boards so check if it is rated to be placed above a range and go from there

Inside the door is plastic covering a metal mesh but the plastic seems to be melting slowly. should I remove the plastic and is it ok for the metal to be uncovered


The screen in the door prevents microwaves from being emitted through the window, so don't remove it. If you feel it is faulty, take it to a service tech, as the door must be in good condition.

It burns thru the glass trray and melts the wheeled tray holder...


There are two possible reasons for this to occur.
1.there was dirt on the turntable and that carbonized and got so hot that it melted the tray. That heat would've melted the plastic spider as well.
2.the microwave oven was turned on with nothing. or almost nothing, in it: the glass turntable is what is known as "a matching load". That means it is there as a safety precaution, protecting the magnetron, in case there's nothing in the microwave oven when it is energized. As such, the glass turntable can get hot enough to melt. That, in turn, will melt the plastic spider.
If either of those is the case, it is OK to buy a new spider & turntable.

I have a GE HVM1750SM1SS and was defrosting some bread without seeing that there was a metal twist tie on the wrapper. In only a few seconds the plastic on the top started to melt and drip in the oven....


It sounds like you may be talking about the stirrer cover.

For some models, the owner's manual covers how to remove it. You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Otherwise, you can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

My microwave has melted a huge hole 17 cm in diameter in the plastic cooking cover - what is wrong with the microwave.


Nothing is wrong with the microwave, the plastic cover was either not microwave suitable or a splash of grease/oil/food was stuck to the plastic and melted it.

Maytag Over The Range Microwave: Melted glass turntable, rollers


Considering the melting pooint of glass ...

Normally, microwave travels around round surfaces (Look at the B-1 for example) If you put flat metal in a microwave, you will create sparks ... lots of em. Is it possible you have something going on with one of the wheels ... like a piece of tin foil?

At a minimum, I think id be inspecting everything inside very carefully and then give it a good cleaning.

You might want a pro in your area tale a look at this as well.

Sounds like some metal is involved somehow. If the unit otherwise works, replace the damaged parts. Test with a cup filled with water.
