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

Purchased the Maytag MMV3180 (SS) microwave last week. It doesn't matter what I cook, when cooking is finished there is moisture inside the oven. The door is steamed up, and water is dripping off the...


I would say quite normal. Ensure that the door is left open for a while when you have finished, that will allow the moisture to disperse.
I cut down alot on the steam by using kitchen paper towel over the food. The towel gets wet instead!
Don't use recycled paper towel unless it states suitable for microwave use as there may be plastics and metals in those.

Need to replace broken glass plate for kenmore elite microwave model number 565.61584011


The tray used to be part number 16264 but it's no longer available.

That model oven was made by Sanyo.

If you have the old one, you can contact Martin Microwave with the dimensions and they may be able to find a suitable replacement.

What is the wattage?


Oddly, the owner's manual doesn't say.

You can contact GE customer service here, or if it's working properly, here's a test that will tell you how much output power it has:

MICROWAVE HEATING POWER TEST

The following test will provide a suitably accurate measurement of the output power of any microwave oven. Variations or errors in performing this test will produce uncertain results. If the line voltage (from the electrical outlet) is low, the magnetron output will be correspondingly low.

Equipment needed:

- Microwave safe container with 1000 mL (1 Liter) gradation.

- Fahrenheit or centigrade thermometer

Procedure:

Pour exactly 1000 mL (1 Liter) of cool tap water into the container. Using the thermometer, stir the water, then measure and record the temperature. For accurate results the water should be about 60 degrees F (20 degrees C).

Place the container on the center of the oven cooking shelf (do not leave the thermometer in the container and remove any metal racks), and heat the water (at full power) for 63 seconds. Use the second hand of a watch, not the oven timer.

After the heating time is completed, immediately remove the container, stir the water, re-measure and record the temperature of the heated water.

Subtract the starting water temperature (step 2) from the ending water temperature (step 3) to obtain the temperature rise.

To determine the output power in watts, multiply the total temperature rise by a factor of 38.75 if you're using a Fahrenheit thermometer or by 70 if you're using a centigrade thermometer.

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.

I Can't Find Microwave Glass Truntable Tray for Jenn-Air


Martin Microwave has one in stock here for $25.99.

I searched for model JVM8000 and this came up.


On a related note, I think that what Smithbrother was talking about is something like a Micro-Go-Round. Here's a related post from my "Ask Mr. Microwave" page.

Q. My turntable is missing or unavailable. What can I do?


A. This sort of arrangement can be a good temporary fix until a suitable replacement tray can be found, or even a permanent solution.
Place a microwave-safe saucer upside-down over your roller ring / turntable support assembly. Then place a microwave-safe plate rightside-up atop the saucer.


Be sure both are centered, checking them frequently to be sure shifting does not occur. Otherwise, a spill of hot material could result. Safety first!

Another option is to check Wal-Mart and other stores to see if they have a Rubbermaid or Nordic Ware wind-up turntable such as the Micro-Go-Round.

I used my Breville Mirrorer Combination Microwave as a convection oven and after 15 minutes the glass plate exploded into 7 sharp pieces. Why? It's only 15 months old and what do I do about getting a new...


Normally when you cook in convection mode, you are supposed to remove the glass tray and use a metal or ceramic tray if I'm not mistaken.

You should be able to contact the manufacturer via the information in your owner's manual.

If you don't still have that, I would contact the dealer from whom you bought the oven.

Broken Glass tray


That model number isn't showing up. Could you confirm that?

Then I'll see if anything is still available for it.

Otherwise, here are two suggestions:

You place a microwave-safe saucer upside-down on the roller assembly (if equipped) and then put a microwave-safe plate right-side up on top of the saucer. You can also use another glass turntable tray that doesn't fit instead of the plate.

Be sure both are centered, checking them frequently to be sure shifting does not occur. Otherwise, a spill of hot material could result.

Another option is to check eBay or Wal-Mart and other stores to see if they have a Rubbermaid or Nordic Ware (NordicWare) wind-up turntable like this "Micro-Go-Round".
