My Bosch Micro HMB405 started sparking/arcing with a burning smell. I had an empty plate in there. Was trying to warm a clear glass dinner plate. Did I kill the magnatron by putting an empty plate in the...


Michelle,
You may have killed the magnetron but you may not have either. If you can take that cover plate off, you may find that there is grease build up behind it and that needs to be cleaned off. Grease can build up there without you even realizing it and after a while it can catch fire from the heat created by the magnetron. You should never put any empty plate or container in a microwave because the magnetron needs to have something for the waves to hit. Hope this helps.

> Why has the plate stopped rotating?

The turntable system typically consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

Here is a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

You order Sharp parts Encompass here or call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

> Will the food be evenly heated even though the plate is not rotating?

No.

Light's on, plate rotates, no heat


When the microwave works properly but just doesn't heat, then the magnetron is bad and will need to be replaced. You can get the part and the diagram at partselect . com or repairclinic . com

you need a new microwave. There are no heating elements in mocrowaves just micro-waces. It only heats moisture it does not heat objects. It is to dangerous to replace the actual device that heats liquids.

Over the last week the light on the inside of the microwave has dimmed and now it doesn't come on and the turntable doesn't work. Will replacing the light bulb correct the problem? Somehow the microwave...


I think you very possibly have a 2 part problem. Firstly, replace the lamp assembly, then replace the turntable motor. If you have a little electrical knowledge, place a tester on the turntable wires when microwave is on and check for voltage.Remember, run microwave as if you were cooking (Place water in unit when switched on).If there is power, then the motor is faulty.

Microwave lights up and glass plate rotates but no heat. Also, unsure how to remove microwave from its surround within kitchen unit.


to almost all of the no heat microwave issues suggest calling company about warranty because the warranty may cover problems like these up to five years and taking them apart will almost certainly void it. Magnatron is likely cause for problem.
