GE Spacemaker making odd noise

Hi,

In the last 3 days my microwave has started making an odd noise - it sounds like popcorn popping or water boiling. This started after I cleaned the microwave with clorox wipes.

It is still cooking food properly but I'm concerned that the noise is masking a bigger issue.

Please let me know what you think.

My name is Jess and my email is jerali@gmail.com

    Also just noticed this problem - now that I think of it - it did just recently start after wiping down the inside of it.

We are having the same problem with our XL1400. I suspect it has something to do with the turn table but don't know for sure. We would be willing to disconnect the turn table...anything to stop the noise but don't know how.

Microwave makes a funny smell when you start it also a popping noise


That sound like arcing inside the food cavity. Maybe it needs cleaning? or some contamination is flashing over making the popping noises.

Crackling and popping sounds when you heat up food


thats normal water expanding and boiling off from the microwave boiling those tiny water pockets in food... sounds like popcorn sometimes.
Cover your food with a paper towel to avoid spatter on the ceiling of the microwave when this is happening.

Clicking When Unit Starts


Q - When there is small amounts of food in the oven, arcing occurs right behind the plate where the wave guide comes into the oven. Sometimes it works well and sometimes you can't even put in a bag of popcorn. Any ideas? Could food have 'dripped' in here and be causing a microwave short?
 
A - Yes! Food splatter or drips can continue to cook and will carbon over creating sparks/arcs from the wave guide cover. Usually can clean up the food on and under the wave guide cover, if the oven liner has been damaged we usually lightly sand and touch up those marks with touch paint. Do not let it go for too long as damage to the magnetron end is possible as well :(   If the wave guide cover has been damaged, replace it!

Cannot heat


Sounds like it overheated, tripped the thermostat, then the thermostat reset. Chances are you have a bad magnetron. GE may have a campaign (not a "recall", mind you!) to offer free replacements if yours is a model that has a known history of problems with the magnetrons. I would call GE and ask them about that. *grin* GE Answer Center 1-800-626-2005 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
