Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Hi, I've read some of your posts and you seem to be quite knowledgeable regarding microwave failures. I am trying to figure out how an over-range microwave could have started a fire. It might be an issue w/ waveguide arcing, or arcing/short of an internal wire. Let me know if you might have time to help me out. Regards, Dennis drturriff@gmail.com

My microwave


Hello,

I’ve read through your problem in an attempt to find a solution to my own similar issue with my microwave oven. Other solutions (like unplug appliance overnight and reconnect to power source the next morning) did not work for my appliance.

Just as I was about to call it quits and go out to purchase a new microwave; I gave it one last try. This time, instead of pressing any and every single button on the keypad, I decided to press BOTH the "Stop/Clear" AND "Start" buttons AT THE SAME TIME. . . . . Voilà! This worked for me, but sadly, it's now May-2008 and I'm pretty sure your own microwave is long gone, since your posting appears to have been quite some time ago. Well, hopefully others that stumble through these pages with similar issues may find some assistance with my approach. Oh, and btw. . .I got this idea (which worked) from remembering the instructions on how to reset my cellphone. Many thanks, ~paul
