SOURCE: sparking fire inside the microwave - Knemore Model No. 721.80522500

If the sparking has stopped, that should be fine.

If you have a burned spot you may need to sand it and repaint it with appliance paint from Wal-Mart, etc.

You can probably replace the shelf bracket / hook if it's still available.

If you'll post your brand and model, we'll see if we can steer you toward a source for a new shelf bracket.

If it's a Kenmore, you can probably find an exploded view by entering your FULL model number here: http://www3.sears.com (the 3 is correct)

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

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.

Having difficulty getting old spacemaker oven out in order to install new.


There are two screws coming into the top front accessed inside the cabinet it is mounted to. the rear of the unit is hung on clips on the bracket screwed to the wall behind it. Take out the two screws ( sometimes hidden under paint or shelf liner) and have someone hold the front up. Then push up on the whole oven and pull it out towards you. ( get help it is kind of heavy). dont forget to unplug it, and feed the cord down as you pull the microwave out. sometimes you have to pull hard, as the pins on the bracket get bent during installation.

My frigidaire microwave door is sagging and is about to fall off


EASY get a machine screw, nut with washer. I believe I used a 1/8" machine screw.....(find something small to fit in the hole on the bottom hinge.

First step, take 3 screws off bottom to expose hinge area. Have someone hold it or support it so wires to the light do not pull out,.

Pop the machine screw through the front and then with your fingers get the washer an nut and tighten down.
If you want the professsional look. Paint the machine screw white first with a enamel white paint.

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.

Jvm 1650 burned one of the mounting brackets


The mounting brackets don't have electricity in them, it has to be an internal short in the oven. It should be taken down and opened up to determine what happened. If the damage is too severe the oven probably would have to be replaced. I would take it to a repair center and get it diagnosed and see if it is something simple that won't cost a lot of money.

Shelf support burned off


The shelf supports will need to be replaced. It's best to replace them all. You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 Before you install the new supports, you should clean the cavity squeaky clean in those areas where they mount. If any paint is chipped or charred, it should be sanded bare, then fresh high-temperature appliance paint should be added. That can be had from home improvement stores, or Wal-Mart, etc.
