What would cause the glass tray in the microwave to shatter


  • The glass tray had a hairline crack or stress fracture that was not visible
  • It got a little too hot in one area
  • The expansion from the heat caused the fracture to expand and therefore crack and break
An accidental bumping of the microwave plate on the countertop while going from the microwave to the dishwasher might set up the above situation. The spoon your seven year old left in the mac and cheese might have arced and nicked a small piece of the glass. Whatever the cause, microwave trays break and they break for a lot of reasons.

All foods cooked in the microwave produce heat. Microwaves themselves are not hot, but the foods cooked in a microwave get hot - some much hotter than others.
Even though most microwave glass trays are tempered, they are not designed to hold up under high temperatures. You will see most microwave trays stamped with the words "For microwave oven use only" This is to let us know that it's probably not a good idea to use the trays in a conventional oven.
Any air pockets, cracks or gaps in the glass can enlarge under heat. Since glass isn't very receptive to being stretched, breakage can occur.

Platter spin, Vent Works, when using the microwave


check the high voltage diode inside the unit,its connected to one leg of the high voltage capacitor and the other side to the metal shell of the unit,if this opens you don't get the high D.C. voltage necessary to operate the magnetron,be careful,the capacitor can store up to 2100 v.a.c.so discharge it first to be safe

Microwave works perfectly but does not heat


Sadly your microwave has done it's last cooking. The mechanism you need to make it cook again would cost you more than a replacement microwave.

Once I place food in to get re-heated, I noticed that my microwave did not heat the food, even though everything else worked...can you help


time for a new one. the microwave unit is dead, no the oven. the microwave unit is the heart of the oven. so, if that goes, everything else goes.

Microwave Turntable


Microwave popcorn gets VERY hot while cooking. Even though the turntable is made of temepred glass, intense heat applied in the same spot over and over can weaken the molecular structure of the glass. After so many expansions and contractions, it will crack because fatigue will cause some molecules to expand less than others, creating stress. This is yet another reason I recommend to my customers that they place the food off-center on the tray - not in the center. The oven also heats better when the food is off-center because the food is more thoroughly exposed to the microwave energy. Until you get a new tray, the photo below can help you.
