Question about Maytag MMV1153A Microwave Oven
We've had this over the range microwave for a couple of years (manufacture date of 2004), but only used it for a couple of months! A few months after installation, I was defrosting cornish game hens when it started buzzing loudly and began to smell like burning plastic. We spent the rest of the year looking for the reciept to make a warranty claim but, alas, it was gone. Anyway, we've sadly been using if for storage ever since, and I thought it was high time to see if there was any hope for it. Any thoughts? Thanks!

my guess would be the wave cover. sometimes they smoke and makes sparking sounds. does it still heat food?...if it does, then its not the magnetron.

the unit inside the microwave that heats called the "magnetron" has gone bad or the circuits that power the magnetron have failed. if its under warranty still, send it back to the manufacturer. if not you can call some repair shops and see how much it would be to service it, but its most likely going to be cheaper to purchace a new microwave since they are relatively cheap these days. microwaves are throw away product now days, they dont make them to last anymore, i hope this helps and good luck to you
