Question about Amana ACM1580 Convection Microwave Oven
Hi I have an older 1000w (6/01) Amana radar range # AMC1580AB convection/micro sn/0106809003 HEARD AN ELECTRIC popping SOUND and sparks came from back center,
two times and haven't used it for the 2 weeks passed.
Any Ideas? thanks ahead
That would be ACM1580AB, just in case that was throwing off your searches.
If the noise came from within the oven cooking cavity, it may be grease of food on or behind the waveguide cover (called a canopy in this case) which is fastened to the wall of the oven with two screws, apparently.
The cover and the area behind it must be clean.
If the canopy is burned or damaged it must be replaced.
If the sound was coming from behind the controls or on the right side under the outer cover, then it is probably a bad high voltage rectifier diode.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:
(if it's not shorted, it's probably okay)
(even if the magnetron passes these tests, it can still be bad. If you have high voltage and the diode is good, assume the magnetron is bad)
