Tha@sbcglobal.netThe turntablr does not turn if anything heavier than a dinner plate is placed on it. I cannot put a pyrex bowl of vegetables on the turntable. It will do a half turn and stop. It makes a clicking sound like it is trying to turn.

    Because my turntable works when something light is placed on it, I don't believe it is a broken motor.

How can I keep the turntable from revolving when using a dish that is too large to turn?


Try removing the M/W turntable and placing a shallow bowl upside down centered over the rotating device. Then place your plate on top of the bottom of the bowl. The device will still rotate but will not be in contact with anything.

My Bosch Micro HMB405 started sparking/arcing with a burning smell. I had an empty plate in there. Was trying to warm a clear glass dinner plate. Did I kill the magnatron by putting an empty plate in the...


Michelle,
You may have killed the magnetron but you may not have either. If you can take that cover plate off, you may find that there is grease build up behind it and that needs to be cleaned off. Grease can build up there without you even realizing it and after a while it can catch fire from the heat created by the magnetron. You should never put any empty plate or container in a microwave because the magnetron needs to have something for the waves to hit. Hope this helps.

Need instructions on cooking times for steaming veg


On a 1000 watt oven, I find 7min about right for most vegetables. Those which need more cooking may require 10min or more.

Is this a self cleaning oven? If so how do you set it to self clean?


Self-cleaning microwave oven?

Loosen up gunk and grease splattered inside your microwave by following this simple tip. Fill a pyrex measuring cup or other microwave safe bowl with one cup water and put in microwave on high for three minutes. This should bring the water to a boil. Let it set in microwave for several minutes with the door closed.

Then, wet a sponge or soft rag with a tablespoon of vinegar. If you need a degreaser, add a few drops of dishwashing liquid to it. Wipe microwave clean with the rag or sponge. The microwave will practically clean itself. Now that was easy!

5 yr old microwave has worked perfectly - until now. Put small amount of food on a safe plate in for 45 seconds. Plate suddenly cracked, was extremely hot - and food wasn't even warmed.


The plate wasn't microwave safe or has a crack in it that had moisture in it to cause it to split.
A new pyrex type glass plate will get it going again.

A dinner I was cooking in the microwave sprayed on the inside like an entire covering and I can't remove it.


Ahh, I hate when that happens!
Put a microwave safe bowl with about 3 cups of water in the microwave and heat on high for about 4 minutes or until boiling well. leave it sit for several minutes and then wipe out the inside of the machine with a damp cloth or sponge. You are not alone:)

Can you run a microwave with nothing in it? Someone told me that just putting a sponge in it will ruin the microwave.


hi, running it with nothing in it will cause it no harm, the only object that will cause it any harm is if you place anything metalic inside it whilst it is switched on.

to clean a microwave most people place a bowl of clean water inside and put the microwave on high for 5 to 10 min doing this breaks up any grime stuck inside the microwave making it easier to wipe off, you can also put a wet cloth in a bowl and switch it on doing this does the same as a bowl of water.

so the only thing that can cause damage is anything with metal in it this will cause it to short out.

hope that has been some help to you

I have a sharp carosel and tried to microwave bitter chocolate in it like many times before... it arched... I contacted Baker Chocolate and they said to put it in a bowl on a plate - did this many times;...


NEVER put anything metal in the microwave. If your chocolate was in aluminum foil no wonder it arced. That is very hard on the microwave.

If the metal were in PERFECT contact, then it would not arc, however that condition is unlikely. Just touching doesn't count... If it was welded and could not touch other metal or the walls, you MIIGHT get away with it.

When Baker told you to put it in a bowl, that MEANS the bare chocolate.

ALSO NEVER put bowls that have metalic trim as the trim will arc to itself.

Cleaning the vent


Hello,

One trick is to put a Pyrex bowl of water and let that boil for a few minutes or so. This gives the water vapors a chance to collect and exhaust dirt and dust from the vent passage way.

Dacor Microwave/Conv Oven DCM24S


Placing the bag on an inverted glass bowl or pyrex casserole dish worked!!!!!  For 2 years, I have cursed my Dacor microwave for its inability to make popcorn (burns a hole in the bag, bag stays flat, almost no kernels pop, etc...)  I read the last suggestion to use the glass plate and I am now sitting with a bowl full of perfectly popped popcorn - with only 1 kernel unpopped.  The metal tray in the microwave conducts too many waves through the bag I guess.
Thanks for the solution!
