SOURCE: faint buzzing sound smoke coming from back

The high-voltage transformer (or inverter transformer) has probably failed.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer.

Smoke coming from under oven


You need a new microwave or you need an appliance repairman. Usually smoke in an electronic product means that there is a short in the wiring or overheating circuit board. If it is still under warranty take it back where you got it.

Microwave is making humming noise and started to smoke and stop working


sounds like the fan inside oven seized, causing the smoke and popped the internal fuse. If you have any appliance repair shops around, they should be able to fix it for you cheaper than replacing the entire unit. Make sure you leave it unplugged, I know thats abvious but had to mention. Good Luck!

Microwave stopped working with no warning. They had a recall on this model and since they ordered two parts it has not worked right


Just had my Kitchen Aid Microwave KHMS155LSS burn up and bellow smoke.

Thankfully, I was close by, stopped the microwave, vented the smoke, turned off the circuit breaker and unplugged it. Still the smell of burned motor, burned plastic has me concerned. Did it get hot enough to cause problems behind the drywall? So far, I am keeping a "fire watch" to make sure nothing is smoldering.

We put a plastic jar with a very small piece of foil on the rim and the microwave started to smoke. it might have run 30 seconds before we noticed it making a funny noise. it is a 1200 watt inverter


Hello Dwight,

You may have damaged the microwave. Since the oven cavity is a tuned cavity, introducing metal into it can wreck havoc on the magnetron (microwave generator itself).

Did you happen to notice if the smoke was from the plastic jar (plastic heating up from the high temp of the foil ring), or if it was the actual microwave smoking (and not blowing smoke out of the oven cavity from the plastic jar)?

OSTER MICROWAVE 1.1 MOD OGF41101-RUNS BUT WON'T HEAT.


There are two fuses in a microwave oven, and for the non-heating problem the problem is the high voltage fuse, incapsulated between the transfo and the magnetron. This supports up to 5000V and usually rated something like 0.65A/0.7A/0.8A and even 1A.
When you open the capsule, you'll see it sitting there between its two connectors, and you'll notice the filament inside the glace is broken. Buy a new one and your machine will work like a horse.
NOTE: Try to get the same ratings fuse, or else the oven will smoke and smoke the house with it, so be careful.
The other fuse is smaller, and usually ceramic one, which can be found on the PCB, if that goes, you should get no power at all to the machine. If not sure, let a professional do the job, it's safer.

Stove fire smoke on microwave above stove.what will clean off this smoke residue? we encountered a stove which left a heavy smoke residue on the microwave above. the microwave has a plastic handle and...


Mr. Muscle Kitchen cleaner will remove the smoke. It won't hurt the plastic. Just make sure to either wear rubber gloves or wash your hands soon after cleaning off the smoke residue. It will make the skin on your hands / fingers slick and then dry after your done. Let the cleaner sit for about a minute before trying to wipe off the smoke residue.

3 new or fairly new microwaves same problem????


Did you properly orient the exhaust vent and take out any shipping materials under the exhaust vent? Sounds like the exhaust fan itself may be overheating, smoking up the innards of the microwave and then the smoke is escaping though the hole where the carousel is located.

Either that or someone built the shaft of the carousel rotator out of the wrong material and the microwave is actually trying to cook (or arc) that piece, causing a fire.

Neat stuff!
