Yes if you can find someone to supply it as a spare part. Clean any grease or debris from behind it too. Often there are little plastic rivets that hold it on. You might as well order them too. If it burnt too bad there will be a carbonisation on the panel too which must be cleaned off as it will attract the microwave energy.

Before ordering anything, remove the burnt panel and run the microwave with just a cup of water in it to make sure it still works fine.

Whatever you do, do not open up a microwave oven cabinet, they are very dangerous inside. If you cant remove the panel from within the cooking cavity then leave well alone and get an engineer to look at it.

Lights under micro do not turn off all of the time but some of the time. Finger sensitive pad does not register 0, 7, 8.; most of the time.


sounds like your touch pad is bad. if its under a year old. call for warranty service.if not you may need to order a touch pad. its not too hard to replace. remove power, take tho screws off the top of the micro holding the top vent cover on. remove the vent cover. above the touch pad is a screw, remove that screw and lift the Assembly up and it will tip out. be careful because you don't want to damage any wires. you can label and disconnect the wires to completely remove the Assembly.good luck!

Sparks and strange noise when microwave is turned on even when empty inside. i have a ge jvm1850smss over the oven microwave.


YOU SHOULD NOT RUN MICRO WITHOUT ANY THING IN IT / THIS WILL OVER LOAD THE MAG TUBE . AND SOME TIMES FRY IT .. The sparking and arcing is probably a bad wave guide . this is sometimes caused by food splater / it gets in the cracks and corners and then cooks till it truns to carbon which conduts the micro's and thus arching .. clean it good and touch up any burns in the metal and repl wave guide cover. mm hope this will help .. mm

Sparks and lightning like flashes appear when the microwave is on. It is a Dacor 24''


If something like a knife, spoon or fork is in the micro, this usually happens. It could also be that the interior of the micro may be damaged due to rust. Check for open metal, cracks or paint missing on the inside of the microwave.

I'm getting a flash inside the oven and the plastic on the inside roof has a burn mark. I removed the plastic cover over the micro wave generator and it did not spark. is the oven dying? It is a 1983 0ver...


It looks like the metal part inside the oven is exposed to the high frequency rf waves. this may sound strange but try coating the metal part with fresh paint. remember no metal inside the oven will stand the waves created inside the oven the spark u see is the waves hitting the exposed metal part inside the oven

Flashing inside micro when turned on after a few


Make sure the inside is clean of all grease and the paper like screen needs to be removed and cleaned also. If the screen is burned it needs to be replaced. You can find one at an appliance parts store.

Arcing inside and there is now a small hole on the panel side. Is this fixable?


Hi,

It looks like there's lightning (arcing) inside my microwave When you see arcing inside your microwave, it's because of food or liquid left in the cavity or on the wave-guide cover:

  • If the wave guide has any burn spots, replace it and clean the unit well.

  • If the cavity has any burn spots, spot-sand it smooth and touch it up with microwave interior paint.

Note… If there are any burn holes in the cavity, don't use the unit-seek help from a qualified appliance repair technician.

Thanks for contacting Fixya

Sparks in oven


the burning is normally caused by a small particle of food getting stuck on the waveguide cover, this then carbonises and starts to arc. replacing cover should return oven to normal
