    Thanks. It wasn't metal in the container. It turns out certain butters will behave like this.

unplug microwave.
Take ALL dishes out of the microwave and do a proper check of the inside the cooking area. If you are sure that's ok put the glass dish back in if it has one.

Test that the oven and grill are still functional.?

Do they heat up? If they do then get one of those microwaveable bowls or dishes and put some water into it. Place it back into the microwave and do the check again on microwave heating.

Does it bang or spark again?
If it does and the other heating is OK then the Magnatron to me sounds as it's on it's last legs.
That does not mean you have to scrap the microwave if it is the Magnatron. as a new one can be purchased and installed.

Hello bruton. As a microwave oven ages, the interior paint often deteriorates as does the internal part that creates the micro waves.

Using this is not a good idea as there is now a fire hazard. The best solution is to replace the microwave. There are sales now and you can get a nice new one for under $100.

My sharp r-510hw flashing like crazy


Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

The waveguide cover 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 the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.

The sparking is usually due to accumulated grease or food particles.

If there is any chipping, charring or rust, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean.

Sparking is most likely to occur when cooking small items or low-moisture foods like popcorn.

I always recommend that folks put food off-center on the turntable to assure more even heating and to protect the turntable glass.

It may be a food placement issue or possibly a bad humidity sensor.

I always recommend that folks put food off-center on the turntable (not in the center) to assure more even heating.

It's a stirring action, so imagine how inefficient it would be to stir just by twirling a spoon in the center of your coffee!

Also, when you put your food off-center, you're not putting it in the same spot every time. That will help prevent repeated heating of the the same spot on the glass, which can lead to weakness and cracking. Microwave popcorn gets hot enough to do that.

We have the entire service manual at our site if your or a friend want to look that over: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r820bc_bk_bw_sm.pdf

Don't use it! Unplug it and take it back to the dealer-sounds like a loose wire or short.
