Remove all the power.

Sop up the mess with a coffee colored towel
(or one you don't mind being coffee colored).

It is doubtful that there are critical electronics in the bottom but it would be best to not turn the unit or tilt it toward the CONTROL SIDE until you have toweled up all the wetness.

If you can remove the unit...
without running it into the unit below

Gently tilt it forward.. and drain the excess away from the ELECTRONICS pictured immediately below...

Leave the power OFF until the unit has had AMPLE TIME TO EVAPORATE... OPEN

If it was just black coffee you are good to go
If it was cream & sugar your are looking at a bit closer survey
of potential cleaning... REMEMBER ALL
power OFF until
all the moisture is gone

Comment me back ... if you need further assistance

Take a lemon and slice it. Put it in a ceramic bowl of water. Set the timer for 10 minutes. Leave for an hour and then wipe the inside with a clean cloth. It will get ride of the smell, if that was your question? It the cup has stuck to the turntable, set microwave for 1 minutes and scrape the cup off with a paint scraper.

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

SOURCE: How do I fix a Jenn-Air JMC7000 that does not heat up items?

The noise is coming from the high-voltage transformer being overloaded by something shorting it out. Either the magnatron or the high-voltage capacitor and diode. Replace the capacitor and diode then if still not working, replace the magnatron. Its only affordable if you do it yourself - buy the part on EBAY - lookup "universal magnatron"
Hope ya fix it!

SOURCE: burn at bottom of microwave

First try cleaning the burned mark off. Dip a scrubber in lemon juice and sprinkle salt on it; this is also great for burned coffee pots. The smell can be gotten rid of this way: Boil lemon peel in water, then put the water in a spray bottle. Not only will it make your microwave smell fresh but the lemon oil will make it easier to clean. If it still smells of burning rubber, take the back off and inspect the wiring. IF you see burned wiring, please do yourself a favor and replace the microwave!

Microwaves work by making the molecules in food get "excited"-they move more-meaning, if there IS rubber burning, then there will be minute molecules of rubber in your food, which is BAD for your immune system. If it's just burned chocolate, though, it is harmless unless you are allergic.

SOURCE: Burning smell and won't heat.

If it buzzes real loud it's probably the high volyage diode. However some times if it smells it's the transformer. Usually the diode is a cheap fix ~$10.00 but this model the diode is $50. It's number 50 on the link below. Let me know how it works out or you need anything else.

SOURCE: MICROWAVE IS NOT HEATING

HI, the actual device that produces the heat is damaged or faulty. this device is called the Magnetron. you will need to replace this part in order to restore the heating ability of this microwave oven.

Please rate and have a great day:)

Had a problem with voltage (edison) smelt something burning while micro-wave was in use. now the lite+time works but nothing else. jenn-air jmc813odds


If you open the door of the microwave can you smell an odd odor? if yes the magnetron is probably fried "heats food" the other parts that need to be checked are the high voltage capacitor and diode. I recommend appliance repairman or tv technician to further check with an estimate.

When I close the door and begin to try to heat something I immediately hear an abnormal low buzzing sound. If I let it run I smell what seems to be something burning. Obviously this does not sound safe...


There is no easy fix on a micro wave oven. It is an extremely dangerous appliance and any repair is best left in the hands of a qualified repairman.

Is this oven still under warranty? If so, take advantage. If not, remove the power plug and the case. Short out, with a screwdriver, the large can-shaped capacitor with two terminals sticking out. Check the wiring and circuit board for signs of burning. If everything looks ok, remove the thin sheet metal wave guide that sits above or beside the microwave energy port into the cooking cavity. Under the sheet metal, there is a metal fan-like device called a 'stirrer' that has a plastic bearing. Remove this stirrer and smell the bearing. If it smells like the burning wire smell, replace the stirrer. You can buy it through 'Sears Parts' online.

The microwave starts, then stops after a few seconds, and smells


Remove the cover after pulling the power plug. Check the transformer and large capacitor for signs of overheating. If they look ok, then remove the sheet metal wave-guide from the area where the energy enters the cooking cavity. Under the wave guide is a fan-like device called a stirrer that has a plastic bearing. This stirrer bearing is commonly arced over (when the oven is operated with nothing to heat in it). Usually the bearing looks good, but has arced internally. Replace the stirrer as a unit. The machine can be operated with the case off and a cup of water for a load, but keep you hands clear. Look for smoke.

I have a Kenmore Brew Wave that has cracked in the plastic unit that you put the water in to make coffee. Where can I find a replacement. Had a job getting a new carafe when it cracked.


Sears do not make the carafe anymore but this is something that I do that may help?
I took the top off the carafe an just placed it to the top of my coffee cup and sat the top part the holds the coffee on top of it and just poured the hot water from a cup I heated in the microwave. Do it very slowly until you get the it right for you, it works for and I hope it will do the same for you guys ?

GE Spacemaker microwave won't heat food


hello kmwnky,
You say that Everything went out at first ( which I assume means that all functions went dead) and then functions started to operate again later... if that is correct and you smelled something burning.. you may have a thermal fuse that failed, filament transformer that failed, magnetron tube that failed or a highvoltage capacitor that failed.. None of these components are something the untrained person should attempt to trouble shoot or replace since there are dangerous energies stored inside the electronics compartment even after power is removed.. Your Micro is > 8 years old and it's probably not worth the cost of repairing at this point. You'd be better served replacing it.. The cost to repair would exceed the cost to replace.. ( I feel like the grim reaper here..sorry..)
Regards,
Rick
