Re: microwave

If it sounds like it's coming from the cooking cavity it may be grease or food particles on or behind the waveguide cover.

If you turn the room lights out and try it, you may see some sparks to help you locate the trouble.

It could also be a problem in the high voltage section, such as a bad diode or loose conneciton.

Not pleasant to think about, but more than once we've found a dead "intruder" inside the high voltage section.

Please write back with more details if you need further help.

We appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Microwave not heating

In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

Saw sparks and heard a pop noise when we hit ''start'' on microwave

We just had the same problem - spark, loud noise, and then dead. At first I replaced the ceramic fuse and the same thing happened immediately. A local appliance store tested the transformer and found it was "bad." I purchased a used transformer from the store for about $35. I installed both of these myself with little effort.

Not working plmv169dc

HI, the sound you herd was the noise filter and running diode. these important components have failed at this point. you will need to replace these components asap, if possible. this will fix your issue.

The Magnetron Cut-off fuse will need to be replace as well. this will blow if there is a malfunction within the unit.

I was boiling water on the electric range beneath my FRIGIDAIRE FMV157GC 1.5 Cu. Ft. Microwave Oven when there was a loud snapping/popping noise occured. I immediately shut off the microwave and thought...


I would say the transformer for the power supply has probably shorted, or another major component in the power supply has shorted - This may be repairable if easily spotted, but most likely will not be cost efective.

Microwave made loud popping noise

The magnetron is bad. Probably cost about $50 or $60 for the part. Not too easy to replace, but it can be done.
