SOURCE: Hole in plastic on inside of door

check the conductivity of the plastic with an ohmmeter by placing the probes an inch apart on the plastic surface. If the resistance is large or infinity, the plastic probably performs no role in stopping the microwave radiation. If so, any epoxy probably can be used to close the hole safely. Make sure you don't use too much and if possible place tape over the repair and orient the microwave so the epoxy presses against the tape while drying to prevent it from oozing into any door hinge/close mechanism. Otherwise, a piece of microwave door glass from a broken unit can ge glued over the hole and should stop the radiation. You can check for leakage with test units but be very carefuly anyway.

My microwave model mv1526w when I press start it start to spark...What makes it spark and can I fix it?


It might be the appliance isn't properly grounded or it might be it is faulty or it might be there is something inside that is unsuitable.

Microwave ovens should not be operated with nothing inside and only suitable containers should be used to hold food for heating. Cups or plates with gold painted rims and metal containers and those containing metal are likely to cause a veritable electrical storm inside.

HOW DO I OPERATE IT, EG HOW TO USE IT TO WARM ALREADY COOKED FOOD AND PASTRIES


I usually just put the food in a microwave proof bowl and put it it and push the button number that I think will be hot enough but not so hot it will burn my mouth .1 or 2 minutes is more than enough for most 30 to 50 seconds for coffee and 10 to 15 seconds for pastry

Unable to eliminate odour from previous cooking despite the fact that I wipe the microwave with a soapy cloth & then with a clean cloth each time to Microwave is used


  1. Fill a plastic bowl with 1 qt. of warm water. Add 2 tbsp. of liquid dish soap and 1/4 cup of chlorine bleach to the water. Thoroughly mix the solution.
  2. Dampen a clean cotton rag in the solution. Wipe all inside surfaces of the microwave with the soapy rag to remove food debris and stains. Scrub stubborn residue with a nylon scrub brush.
  3. Moisten another cotton rag with warm water. Wipe the microwave surfaces with the rag to wash away soap and loose food debris. Thoroughly rinse the inside of the microwave.
  4. Dry the microwave's interior surfaces with paper towels. If odors remain in the microwave, fill a microwave-safe bowl with 1 cup of cool water. Add to the water 2 tbsp. of baking soda, half of a chopped lemon (including pulp and rind) and four whole cloves.
  5. Place a microwave-safe plate on the microwave turntable. Set the bowl on the plate.
  6. Heat the microwave on high for three minutes. Operate the microwave according to the manufacturer's directions. Keep the bowl in the microwave for 15 minutes.7
  7. Remove the bowl from the microwave. Wipe the microwave's interior surfaces with clean paper towels to remove steam moisture.
  8. Leave the microwave door open overnight to completely air out any remaining odors.

    My ewave nicrowave has started this blue sparking and buzzing behind the small pannel inside, what do I need to do?


    The magnetron is arcing on the inside because of bare metal or food partical buildup, this needs attention right away before the magnetron is distroyed. Take warm soapy water and clean until spotless, if that fails! have someone check it.

    While cooking in our Whirlpool GH5184 microwave an arcing appeared near the L/H lower corner of the unit. After shutting it off we observed a black arc mark on the inside of the door and a small hole from...


    This is caused by either carbon arcing from carbonated food deposits or metal dish or bowl being used inside the machine causing a track. Even a recycled paper towel can cause it as the towels have metal traces in them.

    Put A foil pan in it to warm and now has a burning smell and makes a noise, not heating. assume we blew something Sharp R-7A85


    Never, never, never, never, never put anything metal in a microwave oven! No metal, no pot or pan, no silverware, no plate with metal trim ... nothing! No "Jiffy Pop" (comes in a metal container). Use ONLY microwave safe containers. Some claim there are health concerns (dangers) to using anything plastic in a microwave. The claim is the chemicals in the plastic which were not meant to be consumed are consumed as they are burned out of the plastic into the food. These chemicals are know to some to be cancer causing. I am not making this claim ... only passing on what I have heard about plastics. For myself, I don't use plastic or paper (fire hazard) in the microwave. For one thing, I don't like the taste of food that has been prepared or reheated in a microwave in a plastic container - particularly coffee.

    Having said that ... here is what is going on. You probably reflected microwave back into the magnatron and ... well ... cooked it. In my area, such damage is not economically repairable. The tech wants $100.00 to look at it, magnatrons are typically $50 to $100 or more. There could also be other damaged parts ... repair bill could be more than a replacement oven.

    If you find a oven that comes with a rack, here is how that works. You will observe that the rack sits with flat feet on a carousel which is typically out of the range of the microwave OR has been built to reflect the waves in a manner that they will not damage the magnatron. Typically, a rack will be made of very small round stock that will not reflect much in any single direction ... besides that, you would have food on the rack that would absorbe most of the energy anyway.

    If you replace this oven, please ensure you review all the warnings and instructions that will accompaly your new oven ... even the seemingly silly stuff like "dont use the microwave in your bath tub to heat the water".

    I believe your oven is cooked. I'm sorry you are having this trouble and I hope my comments have helped you to arrive at a workable solution to your problem.

    I hope you are using a bowl to catch the food...?

    One thing you can try is to cut out some plastic from a blister-pack or other type of toy-package and tape it onto the end of the chute. This will act somewhat like a doggy door flap. This will certainly slow the food down as it enters the bowl.

    My sharp r-510hw flashing like crazy


    Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

    The waveguide cover is usually about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.

    It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!

    The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.

    If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean.

    Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

    If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.
