Microwace noise coming from top and flashing


dont use the microwave until you retrieve what dropped inside when you removed the port. The grinding is most likely a foreign object that is hitting the moving parts of the microwave and causing sparking. It can catch fire

What cause sparks to shoot inside the Daewoo KOR-1B4H Microwave Oven when it is empty?


You should never run a microwave with nothing in it!! There is nowhere for the energy to go. The oven itself has a special coating that keeps the sparks from happening. Anywhere the coating is bad will arc. If it keeps arcing it will burn out the microwave generator.

My Goldstar MV-1310W microwave has sparks flying from the metal plate that's inside on the top.


Microwave ovens do not work well with exposed metal. IF you place uncoated metal in the oven, sparks will occur.
IF the interior of the oven has the metal exposed, it will cause sparking to occur.

There must be NO exposed metal inside a Microwave oven!

I get an occasional spark when microwave is in use


Presuming that you have iliminated the possibility of any metal objects that are not meant to be in the machine being in there (and this includes dishes and other items with silver or gold leaf on them, which WILL spark and burn!) then take a look inside the oven its self. You will find a waveguide cover. It is usually a strange flakey silvery plastic/card like material called Mica and is usually on the same side of the microwave wall as the control panel (So if the picture on this thread is accurate, I will guess the Mica cover is on the right hand wall inside as you look at the machine from the front) . Over time, the magnatron (the thing that creates the microwave energy) will often burn a hole through the mika, or cause a dark brown or black burn mark in it. If this cover is even slightly damaged then it may well cause sparking inside the machine. These covers are designed to be removed and you can buy replacements for them from electrical stores.

Sparks coming from inside of oven body


Microwave ovens usually have a small panel inside that looks like a piece of card. This can sometimes decompose and cause sparking . If so then you can replace this easily. You should be able to get one quite cheap.

The top plate inside the microwave sparks while cooking. We checked the dish we were cooking with, the papertowel that covered the dish. What could be causing this?


The wave guide could be dirty or damaged. Dirty oven interior can also cause sparking. The wave guide is probably not dirty if it's not on the interior of the oven . Some are behind the interior wall .

yes you can buy a sheet and cut it to size-just ensure that any bare metal inside the microwave caused by the sparking isrubbed down and painted with two coats of ,hammerite metal paint otherwise its back to square one

Getting sparks when in use Whirlpool GT4185SKB. This was made in 2003. What is the problem? If not possible to repair, is it still available new? Thanks.


If your microwave has a turntable its probably just burnt food inside or above the oven chamber that has carbonized. If it doesn't have a turntable its possible the stirrer above the oven chamber is stuck and not moving the microwaves around, therefore causing over heating and arcing. It also could be that the stirrer blades are hitting inside. Hope this helps

Ok stop useing oven and unplug! THIS CAN BE FIXED!!! Go to a home improvment store and buy a small bottle of white liquid enamal....Clean up the area that is missing and flakeing and then apply the enamel over the hole and let dry overnight! now that the exposed metal is covered back up it is safe to use and will not spark or cause any more soot!
PLEASE rate my response to your question!
