Question about Sharp R-306LK Microwave Oven
While using the microwave oven, it started to smell of something burning then a flame came out from under it on the back side on the side of the control panel. I had been using it to heat up food in a cardboard container. There was no metal inside of the oven. As soon as the flame came out from under it, I hit the button for the door, which shut the oven off and then unplugged it. I have not used it since. Any ideas?
It sounds like a failed high-voltage transformer.
That oven retails for about $80 right now, so I don't think a non-warranty repair is economical.
But since a FLAME(!) came out of it, I would think you have a VERY strong case to "convince" Sharp to give you a replacement pronto...
