Emerson 1000 Watt Microwave

Every once in a while when using microwave, it makes a loud popping sound. It sounds the same way when it arcs. Can this be repaired by me? If so where can I get part.

There is a good possibility that microwave energy is leaking near the magnetron tube, or some other high voltage electrical problem is occurring. I would recommend having it tested by qualified microwave repair technician. A few things you can do....
-Make sure the door seal is clean and no corrosion.
-Check the interior for rust spots or holes and make sure it's clean inside.

Emerson microwave oven model mw9339sb has an arcing magnetron


The magnetron is supposed to make an arc to work but when it is getting out of hand it will sound wrong. At that point it is time to change the large capacitor and the magnetron. If there is an arcing inside the cabinet then you have to look for missing powder paint. Don't use any metal racks in a microwave or they will arc.

Microwave made loud pop when started


It does sound like it may be arcing causing snapping sounds, if bare metal is exposed it will arc and eventually cause the maghetron to fail. It is possible the magnetron is breaking down, but for safety issues it should be checked.

I HAVE OVER HEATED SOME BOILING EGGS AND IT BUST IN SIDE THE MICROWAVE NOW ITS MAKING THIS POP AND CRACKING SOUND IS IT SAFE FOR ME TO STILL USE IT


Chances are it just needs to be cleaned thoroughly.

If there's any food debris or grease left in the oven, it can arc and pop.

Microwave made loud popping sound and now does not heat.


Hey,
Try this
Probably a high voltage diode popped because contaminated grease eventually built up and made a path for a high voltsge arc to occur.. To confirm,take the outer cover off the microwave and discharge the high voltage capacitor by shorting its terminals. Then pull the plug off the magnetron side and place it near the magnetron socket. Now turn the microwave on and push the connector on the magnetron with a chopstick or a long insulated screwdriver. If no arc when you do this this confirms a bad diode.



please rate my suggestion..

Intermittant loud "pop" when starting my microwave


Clean well the inside of the oven, if you keep having the problem and the inside is clean, then the magnetron is starting to go.
