Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

The waveguide cover is usually about the size of a playing card and held in place by a plastic rivet.

It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!

The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smmoth and clean.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart or Lowe's.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.

Can visionware go in oven


The short answer is YES!

In the 1990's Corning produced a series of Visions cookware, brown amber and cranberry colored glass-ceramic dishes and casseroles, that had the same basic properties of its white Pyroceram cookware. Visions cookware could go directly from freezer to hot oven to stove-top to the microwave oven to table to fridge to the broiler to the dishwasher, etc. Extreme temperature changes did not affect the very durable cookware, While many folks mistake Visions cookware for Pyrex bake-ware, they are not the same. Visions cookware was never issued in the forms (square pans, rectangle baking pans, loaf pans, pie pans, etc that clear glass Pyrex baking pans had been produced in for decades. In any case, Visions glass-ceramic cookware could go direct from the freezer to the hot oven - there would be NO DAMAGE to the cookware in such a practice. Visions glass-ceramic cookware also has markings to indicate usage. The majority of Visions cookware were of the "stove pot" design - stove top was intended from the start. However it is practical to let the food defrost first, or adjust the cooking time in order to create a better thoroughly cooked dish.

Yes, Visions cookware can be used in the oven! One caveat is that the pot lids are Pyrex which means that the pot lids can not be placed under the broiler (who does that anyway?), or under direct heat, or while hot on wet surfaces. The pot lids were meant to be pot lids - just like other Pyrex glass pot lids on most cookware.

Yes, Visions cookware can be used in the oven!

I need instructions for 10in. microwave browner


Only place I've found is here: CorningWare Browner Instructions

As these dishes were designed by Corning for a 650 watt over, you can recalculate preheat and cooking times for your oven with the following formula:

650/(your oven's wattage) x (listed preheat time or cook time)

For example, for a Corning MW-9 dish, they list 4 minutes maximum preheat time. I have a 1,580 watt oven. So 650/1580 = .41 x 4 minutes = 1.64 minutes and about a minute and a half preheat. (MAX).

Sharp R305KS Stainless Steel 1100 Watts Microwave Oven problems:1.5 years old. We put in a microwave popcorn bag and had bright flashes going off as though there was metal left in there and gurgling...it...


unplug microwave.
Take ALL dishes out of the microwave and do a proper check of the inside the cooking area. If you are sure that's ok put the glass dish back in if it has one.

Test that the oven and grill are still functional.?

Do they heat up? If they do then get one of those microwaveable bowls or dishes and put some water into it. Place it back into the microwave and do the check again on microwave heating.

Does it bang or spark again?
If it does and the other heating is OK then the Magnatron to me sounds as it's on it's last legs.
That does not mean you have to scrap the microwave if it is the Magnatron. as a new one can be purchased and installed.

I would say your keypad is shorting or there is corrosion, grease, or moisture on your control board.

If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

I would say the high voltage diode blew.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety and disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can get Sharp parts from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com

If it's not the high voltage diode, reply back for further help.
