Question about Emerson Microwave Ovens
Heating up a heat pack in microwave has caused the small plastic plate (It looks like it covers a hole, but I can not remove it) on side wall to burn/melt. Is it ok to continue using?
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.

To locate the inlet cover, look towards the interior side of the microwave next to the microwave display. The inlet is typically located near the back of the microwave, in the middle of the wall.
Unplug your microwave from the electrical outlet and remove any food or containers.
Wipe the inlet cover, typically located on the right side of the microwave in the middle of the wall, with a damp cloth. The cover must be kept clean or it will not protect the microwave.
Dry the inlet cover with a soft towel.
Leave the microwave door open for several hours to air out the inlet cover.
Examine the inlet cover for wear and tear. If the cover has too much damage in the form of scratches or holes, it may need replacement.
Remove the inlet cover, if desired. Insert a putty knife under the plastic nail that holds the inlet cover in place. Pry out the nails and set them aside. Pull out the micro plate in front of the inlet and set it aside. Remove the inlet plate.
Install a new inlet plate. Slide the new inlet cover into its place. Replace the nails back into the side of the microwave by aligning them with the holes of the side.
