Over cooked something in microwave and now inside is yellow. How can I return it to white?


Once the plastic is yellowed, there's not much you can do to remove the yellow discoloration. Just continue to use your microwave as usual. If a burnt smell remains, you can heat vinegar in the microwave which will help eliminate the horrible odor--like burnt popcorn!!!! Yuck!

When a microwave gets a strong smell and then just stops working actually this means that something is bunt down in it, more of so the strong smell indicates that the HT (high tension transformer) inside has its windings burnt. If replaced check that while its on, its vent holes on the sides or at the back is not blocked, this helps it not over heat. Also check that the fan inside is working or else replace it too.

Our microwave has stopped working for the second time in two years. When you try to heat something, it hums but not quite like it is heating. There is also a funny smell.

this sounds like the magentron may be going. have you had any issues with it not heating? check your warranty book, some mags have a 3-5 year warranty, otherwise it's probably not worth repairing.

My microwave made a pop sound and then stopped heating. It also had a bad smell when you opened the door.

Motor sounds differently, smells like something is getting hot, won't heat the food


Do you have good air flow coming out of the vents?

If for some reason the cooling fan stopped working, it can cause the magnetron to overheat and be damaged.

If you don't still have your manual, you can download it here:

It will address ventilation issues.
