GE Spacemaker XL1800 sparking from behind wave stirrer cover


Microwaves use a magnetron to generate microwave energy and direct it a rotating blade wheel to spread them around the inside of the oven. If there is any metal in the area to be heated, or any of the blades are bent, even a bit, the microwave energy can be reflected back up to the magnetron area. In this area there is now too much power and it sparks away, so it does not heat the item in the oven.
Because it is sparking it is now a safety hazard the sparks may melt and set fire to plastic parts in it. This is serious it could burn your house down. Bin this microwave and cut the cable off it to make sure no one else ever uses it.

Inside the door is plastic covering a metal mesh but the plastic seems to be melting slowly. should I remove the plastic and is it ok for the metal to be uncovered


The screen in the door prevents microwaves from being emitted through the window, so don't remove it. If you feel it is faulty, take it to a service tech, as the door must be in good condition.

My Daewoo microwave is model KOC-9Q1T/KOC-9Q1TSL I notice that the plastic frame around the top of the door is wrinkled, as if it has melted. I have photos of this if you need them. Please let me know 1....


Plastic will melt but the door frame is metal and will not. So there is no safety issue here, just looks.
One could replace the door assembly if required. I would leave the door open after convection cooking to let the heat escape without heat build up causing the plastic to mishape.

On the inside of the door of my microwave front window is an adhesive plastic covering that if you pull it off there is a black mesh screen exposed. is that clear sheet suppose to be removed.


The metal mesh is a filter screen to keep the microwaves in the oven while letting you see the food. The plastic sheet that's peeling off is meant to keep that screen clean. It's not supposed to be removed, since then food can get into the holes in the screen. A buildup of foods can lead to overheating and burn the paint and possibly damage the door. It should be replaced.

The part number is WB36X10068. A Google search turned up several sources. Here's one, but there are others. The new sheet has the adhesive applied, you just peel off the protective film and stick it in place. Clean the door inner surface first so the new sheet will stick firmly.

Good luck with the repair, and thanks for using Fixya!

How do I clean the inside glass on the door - GE Profile JVM1870


I have a Kenmore with similar issues.
Model 665.61639100
Anyway, good luck with this. Hope someone has an answer for you (and me).
Mine has a open slot on the top front of the door. Kinda like a double plate window execpt for the opening in front. Why is this there? I don't know. Weird design. But it leaves for the possibilty of liquid to splash in there leaving it hard to clean (like impossible).

I'm thinking I have to completely remove and disect the door.

My nanny stuck a piece of chicken wrapped in aluminum foil into the microwave for 30 seconds ... naturally: diasaster .... the front glass is 'burned' in a small spot but I think it is a 'hole' ... still...


There is a plastic inner sheet that covers and protects the metal mesh that's in between the door panels.

If food, grease, or moisture gets on the metal mesh, it can be damaged, which can cause leakage, resulting in arcing and possible fire.

So the inner sheet must be repaired or replaced.

If the hole is not too big, you can use an Xacto knife or razor blade to cut away the damaged part, then clean & dry it thoroughly, and apply a small piece of clear packing tape over the area.

Otherwise, you can replace the sheet.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.

Small tear on plastic lining covering the inside of the door


That clear cover (sometimes called the inner door screen) is very important.

It protects the metal mesh / screen from debris and corrosion. The metal screen allows you to see "what's cooking" (*grin*) but prevents microwaves from leaking out of the door due to the precise size of the openings in the mesh.

If the mesh rusts or gets grease or food on it, it can arc, and this can damage the screen, then microwaves can leak, causing a burn or fire hazard. (No "radiation" threat, though)

If no arcing or other damage has occurred yet, you can clean the area squeaky with alcohol, then dry it completely and use the smallest possible amount of clear Scotch tape or packing tape to cover the tear and make sure it's flat.

If this fix doesn't work, or it's too big an area, you will have to replace the sheet, which can be ordered.

You'd have to heat it up with a hair dryer, peel it off slowly, then clean the area with something like acetone, then peel and stick the new one.

If you need to or prefer to order it, I would need your brand and model number to help you further.

IN CABINET MICROWAVE


Hello JudyKitz,
That mesh is there to protect the user and acts as a shield to contain microwave energy to the cooking compartment. Never compromise that material.. You can purchase replacment liners at this site http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5130353 If you prefer, you can get a thin piece or sheet plastic cut to fit at many local hardware stores or home centers..You may want to make a paper template or take accurate measurements with you for that method.. Hope this helps you..

Microwave door has burnt patch: is it safe to operate?


From your other post:

The paint should be available at big box stores like Wal-Mart, home improvement centers like Builder's Square, Lowe's, or Home Depot, or hardware stores or local appliance parts stores.

You can order the plastic sheet (called the "door film") here. It is part # WB06X10490.

Be sure the mesh is clean and dry before installing the new film.

GE XL1800 Door


OK, I'm no handy man and I just figured out how to do this. Open the door and remove the black plastic cover surrounding the inside glass. I used a regular flat head screw driver to pop this out.

Now I removed the 3 screws holding the inner panel against the glass on the front door. After removing the screws, the inner panel is held in place by a series of plastic clips. Go around the perimeter and pop the plastic clips out so the inner panel including the mesh comes out of the door.

Now you have complete access to clean the inside of the glass door!

I found it easier to do this operation with the door completely off the microwave, but you should be able to do this with the door in place too.
