It's probably either the magnetron, high voltage transformer, or high voltage rectifier diode.

If the original one-year warranty has expired, the magnetron should have about a 5-year warranty. You will still have to pay labor charges.

You can save the appx. $50-75 service call fee by taking it to the shop yourself.

What to do when oven smells like burning plastic


new ovens do have a certian amount of "burn in" to do when there new best to heat up and cool off oven several times before actuall food use to remove any construction solvents and "cure" all the materials inside

also ck to make sure you removed all the shipping packing sometimes this gets left inside by accedent and smells something horrible when heated ( caution :: Foam degrades to cyanide deadly gas when heated!!!!)

Need new glass tray for Kenmore microwave bought in 1977. Model # 99371.


They made Microwaves in 1977? wow. I would try an appliance junkyard, or ebay. We have used a microwave safe plate of the right size and it worked well. Good luck!

I bought a house with this Microwave - no instructions etc.Should there be a glass tray for it - I know it's an older model


If there is a recess for a tray and a drive in the middle of the floor of the oven, then it should have a rotating tray. My microwave is about 30 years old and has a rotating tray.

My Kenmore 721.626222 which I have had about 6 years, runs but does not heat. There is also a strange smell - something like a burning smell.


When the oven does not heat, the problem is usually due to the magnetron failing. It the part that generates the microwaves that heat the food. It fails by shorting out causing a loud buzzing noise. The burning smell is the being magnetron overloaded due to the short. It not worth fixing since the replacement cost of a magnetron is close to the price of a new oven. Sorry.

I recently smashed the glass tray/shelf. Can I replace it with a standard metal oven shelf to fit?


No! if you installed that you will cause the magnetron to arc and probably short out destroying your oven.

Cookworks microwave oven with grill and convection model cmx60 - I need new glass turntable unable to sourced bought from Argus about three years ago please help.


Microwave turntables are in several sizes

Here are a couple of sources for them. What you have to take note of is the wheel tray also. You may get the right size turntable and not fit the wheel tray. Manufacturer is not as important as the size and tray fitting.

This one seems a bit small at 10 inches but as your microwave is only 800 Watts it may just be the correct one :
