Question about Dacor DMT2420 1200 Watts Microwave Oven
When I turned on microwave with food in the unit it made crackling sounds and sparks on the inside of the 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.
It may also be in the area of the turntable support, coupler, or motor.
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 your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.
It provides critical protection for the magnetron.
