SOURCE: Everytime I use the microwave,

Do you feel air flow at the vents when it's running? That's important.

Lack of air flow can cause the magnetron to overheat and be damaged.

It can also cause excess moisture to accumulate in the oven.

If your air flow is good, this is probably normal. It's always advisable to leave your microwave door open or even wipe down the interior after using it.

SOURCE: sharp R8310 blows inside fuse when microwave

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

Here is a link you or someone you know can use to test it, but please read the safety info:

Microwave rusted inside

First thing you can do is fix it by sanding it and feather edging the chipped paint and then prime it and let it sit for maybe 4 hours and lightly sand it with really fine wet 320 grit sand paper or finer. You should use paint that is gloss and heat resistant like you can use melamine.
Or just buy another one.

I wiped my microwave with a wet cloth (too wet may be), as a result the microwave did work one or twice and then it made a strange sound, may be like the sound of a smoke detector, and now no button works!...

If you used too wet a cloth on the keypad, chances are moisture got into the controls.

If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.

The keypad may be damaged or worn out, or control unit may be damaged.

My Kenmore 7748 is flashing F 11. Any soludtions?

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
The dreaded f-11 error code is a touchpad error
Normally this occurs if you have recently cleaned the controle panel and it got wet and the insides of the panel got wet. so what you can do is to take a hair dryer and unplug the microwave then use the hair dryer and dry the controle panel for not less than 10 min DONTGET THE DRYER TOO CLOSE OR YOU WILL BURN UP THE PANEL PADS OK JUST SWEEP ACROSS THE PANEL OVER AND OVER OK YOU MAY WANT TO ALSO REMOVE THE OUTER SHELL ND DRY THE PANEL FROM THE INSIDES TOO THEN LEAVE IT SIT FOR AT LEAST 1 HR THEN PLUG IN AND TEST
if this still occurs than the panel is bad and needs to be replaced ok?
Hope this is very helpful please feel free to rate this solution
Best regards Mike

Can you run a microwave with nothing in it? Someone told me that just putting a sponge in it will ruin the microwave.

hi, running it with nothing in it will cause it no harm, the only object that will cause it any harm is if you place anything metalic inside it whilst it is switched on.

to clean a microwave most people place a bowl of clean water inside and put the microwave on high for 5 to 10 min doing this breaks up any grime stuck inside the microwave making it easier to wipe off, you can also put a wet cloth in a bowl and switch it on doing this does the same as a bowl of water.

so the only thing that can cause damage is anything with metal in it this will cause it to short out.

hope that has been some help to you

Micromave control panel

is it wet from you cleaning it with a wet rag or did you get grease in it?? water will dry in a day or two.
grease may have made it permenantly damaged.
the touch pad is replaceable seperately but is somewhat expensive, $120to$150.
unplug it as well and wait a few minutes!
