Problem with over-the-stove microwave oven

Our Maytag microwave oven is leaking some sort of pinetar-like substance from the central cover in the roof of the unit. This is not something that splattered up from a dish. It clearly is coming from the edges of the plastic cover located in the center of the top of the enclosure.

This is the insulating material in the capacitors that are in the circuitry for the magnetron. This is an indication that you have got a failed capacitor in the controls. Your microwave is probably not working to full capacity and soon will quit on you.

Oil like substance


The only oil would be in the high voltage capacitor.

If that fails, either the oven will stop cooking, or the fuse will blow as soon as you press the "Start' key to begin cooking.

More likely it is grease from cooking and just needs a cleaning.

I have a Roper Microwave mounted over my gas stove


Usually you should have at least 12" - 18" AND a fireproof "Barrier" as the "Roof" of the stove "Floor" of the microwave shelf.

I'm getting a flash inside the oven and the plastic on the inside roof has a burn mark. I removed the plastic cover over the micro wave generator and it did not spark. is the oven dying? It is a 1983 0ver...


It looks like the metal part inside the oven is exposed to the high frequency rf waves. this may sound strange but try coating the metal part with fresh paint. remember no metal inside the oven will stand the waves created inside the oven the spark u see is the waves hitting the exposed metal part inside the oven

Remove a whirlpool over the range microwave oven


Jim here. In cabinet above microwave, locate 2 mounting bolts.
Place a box on the stove top to support the microwave once the mounting bolts are removed (you may wish to cover the box with a thick towel or small throw rug).
Procedure:
1. Unplug microwave.
2. Remove both mounting bolts from top of microwave (they secure it to the overhead cabinet).
3. With microwave front angled down onto box, pull some of power cord out of hole (to provide some moving space).
4. With microwave hand supported, remove box from stove top (a second set of hands would be helpful here).
5. HARD PART- detach top of microwave back from wall mounting plate by placing a hand under the bottom rear of the microwave and pushing up. (Wall mounting plate is screwed into the wall behind the microwave and provides both top and bottom support to the back of the microwave.)
6. Lower front of microwave until you can see about a 1-inch clearance between the top-rear of the microwave and the cabinet above it.
7. Firmly lift the microwave straight up and then bring forward. It should be free of the wall mounting plate.

My maytag over the oven microwave just died;


most likely the power supply in the microwave is gone. the microwave die probably it is over the oven. heat from the stove cause the microwave to heat up and cold off more than it is on the counter.
counter microwave has fan and air slot in the rear. it keep the motor and microwave cool, and there nothing else to keep it hot. but the over the oven, the only ventalation is from the top. and with the added heat from the stove top and oven.

Microwave exploded


it sounds like a common problem with burnt food stuck to the roof in side the oven basically the food just cooks and cooks and eventually burns through and can even set on fire, so i doubt its covered under warranty although you could just replace the roof give it a good clean and so long as the mags are ok you shouldn't have any problems... whats the make and model number it could be something more sinister but the above sounds like a best guess to me!!!!
