Microwave emitting a burning odor although it is clean and not sign of food


ive seen this happen before there is a cooling duct that fan blows cool air over magnetron (to cool it off) this duct is exausted into inside of oven , when hot food is left inside for a bit the steam and grease condenses inside this duct /tunnel leading to foul odor that eventually effects food taste , very dificult to clean out but can be done by a professional serviceman using oven cleaners (do not spray any cleaners into ports) remember there is very high voltage present inside there and that port does lead right to it !!!!

Jvm1790sk01 GE Microwave Broken - Manufactured Aug 2005. Working fine until tonight. Loud vibrating humming sound coming from Right Side and Burning Odor... No heating on high power. Just burning odor. ...


Sounds like you Magnetron has failed. The only way to repair this is to replace the part. Some microwaves have an extended warranty on this part. Check your manual and Call GE for service if it does. If the warranty has expired you might as well buy a new microwave unless you are very attached to this one. Hope this helps

Is there anything we can do to remove the smell of burned food from the microwave? The smell has permeated the inside of the unit and emits the burned food smell whenever it is used.


I've adviced you to placed charcoal inside the unit overnight or when it is not in used.
Charcoal will absorb the upleasant odor from your microwave oven.

Thanks for using fixya...

It's probably normal, but you might visit your dealer and check another one and even another model or brand to see if they have the same odor.

On for 2-3 seconds and shuts down with slight wire burning odor.


http://froogle.google.com is showing this model selling for as little as $100. But as a technician, I have never cared for the inverter models. As complexity increases...
