Usually the sparks are from exposed metal. Clean the oven, and the table and anything else you can inside. Then just try nuking a cup of water. That gives it something to work with and it won;t make any sparks itself. Then just see if the sparks are gone. If the paint has come off inside the cavity and exposed some metal you can get sparks but that usually means replacing the microwave. If its caused by an object or buildup then a good cleaning stops it.

Unable to eliminate odour from previous cooking despite the fact that I wipe the microwave with a soapy cloth & then with a clean cloth each time to Microwave is used


  1. Fill a plastic bowl with 1 qt. of warm water. Add 2 tbsp. of liquid dish soap and 1/4 cup of chlorine bleach to the water. Thoroughly mix the solution.
  2. Dampen a clean cotton rag in the solution. Wipe all inside surfaces of the microwave with the soapy rag to remove food debris and stains. Scrub stubborn residue with a nylon scrub brush.
  3. Moisten another cotton rag with warm water. Wipe the microwave surfaces with the rag to wash away soap and loose food debris. Thoroughly rinse the inside of the microwave.
  4. Dry the microwave's interior surfaces with paper towels. If odors remain in the microwave, fill a microwave-safe bowl with 1 cup of cool water. Add to the water 2 tbsp. of baking soda, half of a chopped lemon (including pulp and rind) and four whole cloves.
  5. Place a microwave-safe plate on the microwave turntable. Set the bowl on the plate.
  6. Heat the microwave on high for three minutes. Operate the microwave according to the manufacturer's directions. Keep the bowl in the microwave for 15 minutes.7
  7. Remove the bowl from the microwave. Wipe the microwave's interior surfaces with clean paper towels to remove steam moisture.
  8. Leave the microwave door open overnight to completely air out any remaining odors.

    While cooking popcorn lastnight in the microwave the glass plate that rotates snapped in half. My husband picked it up right away so it wasn't hot. He put in a microwave safe plate into cook more popcorn...


    All that is required to crack/break an item that is microwave safe is a fine crack or deep scratch. Water will expand so quickly as the microwave energy heats up the water, it turns to steam and cracks the plate with the pressure build up.

    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.

    I HAVE A GE MICROWAVE/BROWNER NODEL WES1384SM2SS. IT HAS STOPPED RUNNING. I CAN SET IT UP TO COOK BUT WHEN I HIT THE START BUTTON NOTHING HAPPENS.


    Re: GE JES1384SF Mine quit working so I unplugged it and put a pot of boiling water in it and let the steam dissolve whatever was gumming things up. I used an electric hot plate to keep the water boiling. I let it boil for a couple of hours. I left the door 2/3 open. The microwave is working again. It is four years old and has been used every day, many times a day before it stopped working.

    Put a hamburger in to heat, on a paper plate. The interior began to spark. the plate on the Right hand side appears to have a something black and charred (as if a piece of meat or grease has adhered to it)...

    Yes there is.

    Unplug the MW.
    Uninstall from wall mount (if installed that way.).
    Remove outer cover by removing the screws at back and (possibly) bottom sides.

    Locate fuse. Replace only with an equivalent type and amperage.

    You can test the MW without reinstalling or putting the outer covering back on.

    Microwave popped and now does not heat


    Okay, first we need to separate the situations. You were boiling water on the stove and had the range hood fan running to **** up the steam. Then you put something in the microwave to heat and you heard a pop and then zip-o.

    The water on the stove has nothing to do with the situation, the fan you turn on is not part of the microwave, so it has nothing to do with the microwave.

    The pop you heard and then the humming suggests the magnetron failed. You said you found a blow fuse and replaced it and still nothing, right? The magnetron is the most likely culprit...I would think it is safe to say that the magnetron shorted and drew enough current to blow the fuse.

    Replace the magnetron and if that doesn't work, let me know here. Good Luck!

    How do I clean the inside of my GE Advantium oven. It is chrome or shiny stainless metal inside.


    A trick I use is to place a damp paper towel on a plate and microwave it for about 1 to 2 minutes. You should be able to wipe most everything off with another damp towel or a sponge. Use caution in removing the old paper towel, it will be very hot. ( you are simply creating steam which is very hot and will soften most hard food) Tim

    Panasonic nn-t754. A paper plate caught fire and a ceramic plate broke it two while in the microwave for about 45 seconds.


    Was the ceramic plate part of the microwave or a plate form the kitchen?

    If it wasn't the microwave plate, it should be fine. You should be able to be sure it's all clean and use it as usual.

    A microwave oven should of course never be left running unattended, especially when using any paper products.

    Paper plates and paper towels can sometimes have small amounts of impurities which can ignite.

    This is covered on page 1 in your owner's manual, which can be downloaded here.
