Putting a metal object in a microwave is not necessarily harmful (after all the inside is made of metal) as long as it's done properly. It's when metal contacts the walls or other metal parts that most of the trouble occurs.

Powers off immediately after starting


My immediate reaction would be to cut your losses and buy a new unit as sooner or later you will run into a part that is no longer available.

Microwave about 3 years old. Started making a bag of popcorn and after about 1 min. the unit started making a sizzling and grinding sound and a puff of smoke was noticed at the inside right panel opening....


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.

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.

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.

If the metal of the oven wall is burned or chipped, the area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

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

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 apply paint.

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

It provides critical protection for the magnetron.

My daughter put metal in oven it shut off. the oven turns buts shuts off after a few seconds. help


metal cannot absorb the microwaves, the microwaves bounce around inside the oven. Eventually they reflect back to the magnetron, which is the part that produces the microwaves. The magnetron can overheat and be damaged.

Turned microwave on this morning ,sudden crackle,then nothing.


Sounds like something has shorted out-blown. Unless it is a very expensive model it won't be worth fixing and is not something you should attempt yourself anyway. If under guarantee then get it repaired via the guarantee arrangements. No harm in checking the plug is wired properly but as the light and timer are working it is very doubtful it is a connection problem. I think you need to buy a new microwave!

STOP WORKING AFTER PUTTIN METAL INSIDE


In some models there is an internal fuse or fuse resistor for the high voltage supply. There may also be damage to the magnetron or the high voltage supply.

This is not something that you can probably fix yourself.

Never put any metal in a microwave oven, unless it is supplied by and specified by the manufacture. Never put anything inside that can cause arching (sparks). If so, the oven components can be damaged.

It sounds like you could have one or two problems. Using the oven with metal in it could cause the magnatron to go bad at its tip causing it to arc and making a popping sound. It could be that there is bare metal exposed somewhere causing the popping sound. Take it in for service!!
