Why did it catch on fire?


Any flaws in the painted surface on the inside of the unit will cause a spark and that generates heat. Examine the surfacecor any exposed metal. You have to use special paint to resurface the inside.

Fire in microwave


You cannot put any metal objects in the microwave. And that includes aluminum foil. Or time to get a new one.

Food in micro caught fire


It may have dried out from over cooking.

This is common in potatoes, popcorn, and other low-moisture foods.

The manual will tell you about that, and it will also tell you not to leave a microwave unattended while it's running.

Micowave sparks a fire


I had the same exact problem. My clips arced when I ran the unit and I also observed flames which was quite unsetteling. A work around for me, since I don't use the rack was I took it out then removed the clips. All that was required to remove the clips was a pair of plyers grabing each cliip at their base. I pulled firmly and there is alittle resistance but with a firm pull straight out they'll pop out.

But I have to say if you use rack your probably looking for a new mircowave.

Burnt hole in microwave


Is the hole actually bigger than it originally was or is it just empty because the rack support got burned up & discarded?

The rack supports / rack holders can be ordered. The part number is WB06X10140 (or WB6X10140) and they're less than $5.00 each. You can find them in stock here.

If you install a new rack support in the hole, then any gap or hole around it can allow grease to accumulate, and that can lead to arcing. But you can seal it safely & easily.

Once the support is installed and everything is squeaky clean and dry, you can apply a small amount of silicone caulk into the gap or hole.

Let it dry it overnight with the door open, then use a razor blade or X-acto knife to gently trim away any excess caulk.

That would be a really good fix.

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