Question about Sharp R959SLMA 900 Watts Convection / Microwave Oven
I just bought one of these second-hand. It frightened the life out of me & and the wife. What's happening? First time you switch it on & put something in it to cook, press the time required & then start, there is an almighty bang/loud electrical arcing coming from behind the control panel/right side. It then stops and the oven works normally, Do it again and it's OK. Don't think it's the megaton, as it would not heat. Leave it for a few hours and it will do it again, when 1st used. Could it be the capacitor....? Help
The arching is probably to the cabinet where paint is missing. This usually occurs at the edge where the microwaves travel into the cabinet. You can get microwave paint from your local appliance parts supplier. It's special paint that is non - conductive.

The cover is probably the magenetron. That is where the microwaves come from. If the bread was moist, it might have left condensate in the unit which is causing the sparking. Unplug the unit, leave the door open over night. If you can remove that cover, do so. Be sure to carefully replace it before using the unit. Never turn on a microwave with nothing in it.
