Had a power surge, microwave started to smoke. Reset power in the house and microwave works fine. 1) Is there anything I should be concerned about? 2) If I continue to use it, can it catch on fire?


Microwave ovens have a lot of safety devices built in. Not sure why or where it was smoking from but without removing the cabinet and having a visual look for something burnt, it would be impossible to say. If the machine is now working OK, ??? who knows. All I can say is that for the next few future uses of the machine, I wouldn't leave it unattended in case there is something that has failed. Chances of fire in a microwave is possible but this is usually something that you are cooking that catches fire, not the machine itself. I have seen the mica cover plate burn in the cooking compartment. It may be that ? Its a small squarish plate that is usually on the side of the oven compartment. It stops food etc and splatters from going into whats known as the waveguide tunnel (The part where the microwaves come out) On some machines, this cover may be plastic. Have a close look inside the oven compartment for a cover that has burn marks or discoloration.

The microwave oven is not safe to use, the fire has compromised the interior of the oven, if you run the microwave it will start to arc and eventually short out the magnetron, because the white enamel paint has been burned away. If you have holes in the ceiling there is danger of radiation leakage, for safety reasons the oven should be replaced.

Fire flash when oven is started. Have instantly pushed stop button to turn it off. Have used wash cloth to clean interior with continuing problem .


Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck somewhere in the cavity of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

It may also be in the area of the turntable support, coupler, or motor.

The waveguide cover (also called a spatter shield) is usually about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.

In some models it is a larger stirrer cover type made of thicker plastic in the ceiling of the oven.

It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!

The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.

The area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

If the cavity metal of the oven is cracked or split, you can use a small amount of steel-based epoxy such as JB-WELD to patch the crack or hole.

Once that dries thoroughly, you can sand it very smooth.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.

It provides critical protection for the magnetron.

Put A foil pan in it to warm and now has a burning smell and makes a noise, not heating. assume we blew something Sharp R-7A85


Never, never, never, never, never put anything metal in a microwave oven! No metal, no pot or pan, no silverware, no plate with metal trim ... nothing! No "Jiffy Pop" (comes in a metal container). Use ONLY microwave safe containers. Some claim there are health concerns (dangers) to using anything plastic in a microwave. The claim is the chemicals in the plastic which were not meant to be consumed are consumed as they are burned out of the plastic into the food. These chemicals are know to some to be cancer causing. I am not making this claim ... only passing on what I have heard about plastics. For myself, I don't use plastic or paper (fire hazard) in the microwave. For one thing, I don't like the taste of food that has been prepared or reheated in a microwave in a plastic container - particularly coffee.

Having said that ... here is what is going on. You probably reflected microwave back into the magnatron and ... well ... cooked it. In my area, such damage is not economically repairable. The tech wants $100.00 to look at it, magnatrons are typically $50 to $100 or more. There could also be other damaged parts ... repair bill could be more than a replacement oven.

If you find a oven that comes with a rack, here is how that works. You will observe that the rack sits with flat feet on a carousel which is typically out of the range of the microwave OR has been built to reflect the waves in a manner that they will not damage the magnatron. Typically, a rack will be made of very small round stock that will not reflect much in any single direction ... besides that, you would have food on the rack that would absorbe most of the energy anyway.

If you replace this oven, please ensure you review all the warnings and instructions that will accompaly your new oven ... even the seemingly silly stuff like "dont use the microwave in your bath tub to heat the water".

I believe your oven is cooked. I'm sorry you are having this trouble and I hope my comments have helped you to arrive at a workable solution to your problem.

My nanny stuck a piece of chicken wrapped in aluminum foil into the microwave for 30 seconds ... naturally: diasaster .... the front glass is 'burned' in a small spot but I think it is a 'hole' ... still...


There is a plastic inner sheet that covers and protects the metal mesh that's in between the door panels.

If food, grease, or moisture gets on the metal mesh, it can be damaged, which can cause leakage, resulting in arcing and possible fire.

So the inner sheet must be repaired or replaced.

If the hole is not too big, you can use an Xacto knife or razor blade to cut away the damaged part, then clean & dry it thoroughly, and apply a small piece of clear packing tape over the area.

Otherwise, you can replace the sheet.

Heating up a heat pack has caused the small


The plate MIGHT cover the waveguide that brings the microwave energy into the cooking cavity, This might be say an inch by two or three inches.

IF the plate has burned or discolored, then it may be carbonized and will continue to absorb the microwave energy and MAY cach fire.

You should service the unit and replace the part.

Running the microwave with too small a load in it can cause this and also if hot food/object touches the plate.

Sounds like some metal is involved somehow. If the unit otherwise works, replace the damaged parts. Test with a cup filled with water.
