We just had the same problem - spark, loud noise, and then dead. At first I replaced the ceramic fuse and the same thing happened immediately. A local appliance store tested the transformer and found it was "bad." I purchased a used transformer from the store for about $35. I installed both of these myself with little effort.

Microwave does not heat and makes a lot of noise


hi Richard, from experience i would say the power supply to the magnetron is at fault, you must take extreme care if you intend to test the supply as the high voltages involved...

Want to know if this is dangerous and can be fixed or should I buy another microwave.


Sounds like the magnetron is going out. If it was me I would scrap it and get a new one.

I heard a pop and then i saw sparks inside the oven, the sparks were coming from what looks and feels like a paper cover inside the microwave


This sounds like the inner lining is coming off and alloying the metal interior to spark. You will need to repair the liner and this should fix your problem.

Yesterday, I went to use the microwave and as I pushed start, I heard a loud pop and saw sparks behind the vent cover. The microwave light and turn table work fine, but it does not heat. Is it repairable?


sounds like your magnetron went out . check how old it is, sometimes the manufacture gives a 5-10 yr warrenty on part if no warranty on unit then it may not be worth fixing depending on how much u spent on it. part roughly 89.99-139.99 labor 85-165.00 depending on who u use and were u live. hope this helps . thanx..

Microwave made loud popping noise


The magnetron is bad. Probably cost about $50 or $60 for the part. Not too easy to replace, but it can be done.
