Sharp carousel microwave


Sometimes, bits of food get behind the microwave generator mica cover and cause this EXACT problem they short out the microwave energy and spark. . It is NOT broken but DONT let this happen for more than a few seconds. !!!! You will see the Mica (looks like plastic) cover from inside the oven and will be on one of the sides.It looks oblong normally, It is actually transparent to Microwaves and is how they get from the generator in to the oven. Give it a real good clean around the edges or better still take it out to clean. and it should be fine

Sparkscome from food (no metal involved) and heating VERY quickly!


Arcing in or above oven chamberThere is often a simple cause:


  • Arcing in the oven chamber with a normal load (a cup of water, for example), often just indicates that a thorough cleaning of the oven chamber is needed, particularly around and inside/above the waveguide cover. Any food that gets trapped here will eventually burn and carbonize resulting in a focal point for further arcing. Usually, the waveguide cover is designed to be removable without taking the (cabinet) cover off of the oven. However, burnt food and carbon often make this difficult so that some disassembly will be required. See the sections: "SAFETY" and "Getting inside a microwave oven".
for more information see "Arcing in or above oven chamber" section of online Microwave Repair Manual.
If the microwave is clean, please post a reply and I will look at it again (this time include a model # and/or approx manufacture date)

Microwave oven part fallen off.


There are nylon push-in fasteners that snap into place. If there is a shop that works on microwaves, they will generally have them. Over time these fasteners get brittle and crumble away. Another option is to use nylon screws, if you can find some the right size. I don't recommend metal screws as they may arc in the cooking cavity. Using the microwave without the cover will result in spattered food getting into areas that can't be cleaned.

Arcing while cooking.


Make sure the inside of the oven is clean and the waveguide cover on the right wall of the oven is especially clean and not damaged. Don't ever run the oven without food in it. If the waveguide cover is damaged it will arc no what but you can probably get a replacement for a few bucks. The magnetron may already be so damaged that it'll never work right again.

BROKEN GLASS COVER UNDER NIGHT LIGHT


SAME PROBLEM FOR ME...I REMOVED THE BOTTOM COVER AND FOUND THAT ONE LIGHT WAS NOT FIXED AND WAS LOOSE AND WAS TOUCHING THE GLASS. THIS HEAT WAS WHAT BROKE THE GLASS COVER. CLOSED INSPECTION SHOWED THE LIGHT SOCKET WAS TOO LARGE FOR THE CLIPS AND WERE NOT SECURED WHEN PURCHASED. I GOT SMALL SCREW AND NUT, BENT CLIPS SO THE SOCKET HOLE MATCHED THE HOLE MADE BY THE CLIP AND SECURELY ATTACHED THE SOCKET. THIS WILL SECURE THE LIGHT AND KEEP IT FROM TOUCHING THE GLASS..........IF I CAN EVER FIND A GLASS REPLACEMENT....MAY JUST HAVE ONE CUT. NOW THE PROBLEM IS TO REPLACE THE LIGHT AND MICROWAVE FUSE WHICH WAS BLOWN WHEN THE GLASS BROKE.

I have a new Advantium Oven, and while I had guest here, someone heated a tomato based food in the microwave without covering the dish. Food particles have popped into the steel webbed covered light...


If a plastic scrubber won't clean it, then when it's dry, you may be able to place duct tape or packing tape over it, press and rub it firmly, and remove the tape. It may remove much of the debris.

A can of compressed air (in the computer section of Wal-Mart, for example) may blast out the bits.

If it resists all efforts, it may be necessary to take to the outer cover off, peel off the plastic light cover sheet, do the cleaning, then install a new light cover sheet.

Broken door hook


The plastic cover on the inside of the door is purely push fit.
To force it off I used 2 strong stainless steel dinner knives.
By easing one knife between the internal glass and the plastic cover I managed to spring one corner by using the other knife on the external bottom edge of the plastic cover.
Try concentrating on one end and once this springs out it is easy to free the rest without having to take it off completely.
The hook is simple to do but be careful with the spring.
All in all it took 3 minutes!
