What's the make and model? Some have a metal tray or rack which is only supposed to be used when browning.

While our microwave is running, there is popping sounds and the panel on the side is sparking


take out the tray and the carousel and put something in the microwave and try to heat it,no zapping means faulty carousel or tray,if you used the microwave with nothing in it,then the microwave WILL do that{zap},do not use your microwave without anything in it,if this still happens,replace the microwave,or you have metal in the dishes you are using.stop using the dishes,get microwave safe dishes.

No metal is in microwave but it light flashes periodically and it makes a weird noise at the same time


Are you certain there is no metal or metal containing racks or dishes?

BTW, wire racks (round wire) are ok because the microwaves travel around the round wire. Flat metal reflects and causes arcing.

Unit will not heat plus there have been sparks at the supports for the trays


Trays are most likely insulated and have areas where the insulation has worn through exposing metal. Order correct microwave touch up paint and coat trays. As to it not heating that is most likely a magnetron tube and diode problem.

My Dacor DCM24 microwave/convection oven is brand new and won't pop popcorn--old or new, large or small bag, with twice as much time as is on the bag, power on high. Doesn't work with the popcorn button...


Are you cooking it this way, as shown in the owner's manual?

"Use an overturned 9 or 10 inch oven proof glass pie plate on top of the
turntable when popping bagged microwave popcorn.
"

You can also use a paper plate in a pinch, but as always, never leave a microwave unattended while it's cooking, since some paper products can have impurities which will allow overheating and possibly fire.

This is a convection oven, so it has a metal turntable tray.

Microwaves cannot penetrate the metal from below like it would on a standard microwave's glass tray, allowing for even heating.

If you've lost your owner's manual, you can get it here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Microwave sparked out now it does not work


You had something metal inside the microwave. Do you have a rack inside on a revolving tray? On my microwave, if the foot of the wire rack is not on the revolving tray, it will spark against the floor of the oven. Microwave will go around round pieces of metal - it will spark if it finds a flat surface. I dont think you did any damage to your machine but try to not do this again.

I hope this helps you.

I have a Spacesaver Microwave (manufactured 1988) that still seems to work ok, but I noticed on teh back wall under the glass tray the coating has rusted away. Should I continue to use this microwave?


Hi,

As long as the oven's metal bottom is sound underneath the rust, there isn't a problem. The cooking chamber walls are so thick and highly conducting that they reflect the microwaves extremely well even when they have a little rust on them. However, if the metal is so rusted that it loses most of its conductivity in the rust sites, you'll get local heating across the rusty patches and eventually leakage of microwaves. If you're really concerned that there may be trouble, run the microwave oven empty for about 20 seconds and then (carefully!) touch the rusty spots. If they aren't hot, then the metal underneath is doing its job just fine.

Thanks.

E-wave KOT-152UB glass tray and turning ring melted


Sounds like some metal is involved somehow. If the unit otherwise works, replace the damaged parts. Test with a cup filled with water.
