Yes it can. There should be a mica cover on the top of the microwave. Usually grease will build up there and when it gets to hot will burn thru the paint. That was the buzzing you heard. I have used white touch up paint in a bottle with brush in the cap to fix the bare sheet metal. Then you can reorder the mica cover. Around 20 dollars.

Well microwave probably was too close to the ceiling and it wasn't getting enough air through and it got hot then bam you have a hole in your ceiling... if your microwave is completely ruined then don't bother with it just get a new one but if it works try moving it farther away from the ceiling.. good luck =]]

Microwave when turn on making a noise and sparks comin from fan area?


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Waveguide Cover




If the microwave is sparking or arcing the waveguide cover might be damaged and shorting out. Try removing the waveguide cover and see if the problem goes away. If there are any damaged spots in the microwave ceiling or sidewalls, repair them and paint them with microwave oven paint. Replace the waveguide cover if it is burnt or if it will not stay in place.

Microwave Oven Paint




If the microwave is sparking or arcing on the side walls the paint might have chipped causing pitting in the metal oven wall. Use microwave safe paint to touch up any bare metal spots.

Rack Support




If the microwave is sparking or arcing near one of the rack supports, remove the support, repaint any bare metal, install a new support.

My microwave is making a loud buzzing sound. Inside the microwave, on the upper right side, is a square area with holes in it. It sounds like the buzzing is coming from behind those holes. Also, after...


THe buzzing noise is most likely coming from the magneton. The magnetron is the main component of the unit (it generates the microwaves). Replaceing it can be very expensive. You may be better off getting a new oven. Prices for new microwave ovens have dropped significantly.

I have Danby microwave, the food does not heat and there is smells like some thing is burnt. I have opened it and the high voltage transformer does not look burnt.


What is happening is that the magnetron is shorted, causing the high voltage transformer to overheat. That is what you are smelling is the insulation getting hot. When the magnetron shorts out, it makes a loud buzzing sound. Replacement magnetrons costs almost as much as a new oven so it rarely makes sense to fix.

Ge microwave jvm160wj01 was working and suddenly started buzzing, gave bad electric/burnt smell and buzzes. Still buzzes and does not seem to heat now.


Sounds like the magnetron just shorted out. Its the part the generates the microwaves that heat the food. Buzzing sounds are a symptom of a shorted mag. Usually not worth fixing since the magnetron costs almost as much as a new oven. Sorry.

Ceiling plate cover has small hole; otherwise works fine.


Since your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced. It provides important protection for the magnetron.

It is part # PCOVPA180WRP0 (copy & paste) and you can
order it from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

In some cases the part is held in place with a rivet. Other times it just slides out of the slot.

Burnt hole in microwave


Is the hole actually bigger than it originally was or is it just empty because the rack support got burned up & discarded?

The rack supports / rack holders can be ordered. The part number is WB06X10140 (or WB6X10140) and they're less than $5.00 each. You can find them in stock here.

If you install a new rack support in the hole, then any gap or hole around it can allow grease to accumulate, and that can lead to arcing. But you can seal it safely & easily.

Once the support is installed and everything is squeaky clean and dry, you can apply a small amount of silicone caulk into the gap or hole.

Let it dry it overnight with the door open, then use a razor blade or X-acto knife to gently trim away any excess caulk.

That would be a really good fix.
