Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
When cooking, my microwave sparks where the plastic hinges hold the racks in my oven. The problem is sporadic, but I fear that a fire could start if I leave my oven unattended.
Any suggestions on what the problem could be? My microwave model is not on the recall list although the problem is the same.
Sonja, I'm not sure what hinges you're speaking about. If you are referring to the bumpers on the ends of the wire racks that are used for convection...move the racks away from the wall. Generally, you should not have anything metal in the unit when it is just microwaving....they are for convection use. You will not start a fire but you will shorten the life of the magnetron if you continue to allow the sparking condition.
