Question about Frigidaire Over-the-Range Microwave
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 on the right side of the cavity and is about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.
In some models it is a larger stirrer cover type made of thicker plastic in the ceiling of the oven.
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 your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.
It provides critical protection for the magnetron.
Your owner's manual may show you how to remove the cover.
