Do ude metal rack when just using grill


On some ovens, you can use the rack to heat additional item(s) while microwaving. Since the rack doesn't turn, things like soup will do well there. Things that need to be turned, don't.

Sparks when cooking


Make sure no metal item (forks-spoons or oven rack) is touching the outer wall of the microwave. That will cause sparks. If all that is OK then there is usually a metal fan type blade in the microwave top called a stirrer blade that may be out of place and rubbing the cavity causing sparks. Try to pin point the spark area so you know where to look for the problem. Sparks usually mean metal is touching metal somewhere.

I need to know if its safe to operate a microwave on a metal chrome wire shelf similar to a bakers rack which can hold 100 pounds per shelf


some microwaves are able to accepa a metal object others are not.
If your microwave ever came with a rack or a temp. probe made from metal then you can add a rack,newer microwaves bounce the microwaves better than older ones,thus the ability for the microwaves to bounce better.
Older microwaves direct the microwaves to a pinpointed center of oven, so what happens when there's metal in the focus area?
It bounces straight back to the transmitter which in turn over heats.resulting in a burnt out microwave transmitter.
good luck,Gary

Microwave when turn on making a noise and sparks comin from fan area?


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Waveguide Cover




If the microwave is sparking or arcing the waveguide cover might be damaged and shorting out. Try removing the waveguide cover and see if the problem goes away. If there are any damaged spots in the microwave ceiling or sidewalls, repair them and paint them with microwave oven paint. Replace the waveguide cover if it is burnt or if it will not stay in place.

Microwave Oven Paint




If the microwave is sparking or arcing on the side walls the paint might have chipped causing pitting in the metal oven wall. Use microwave safe paint to touch up any bare metal spots.

Rack Support




If the microwave is sparking or arcing near one of the rack supports, remove the support, repaint any bare metal, install a new support.

Put a hamburger in to heat, on a paper plate. The interior began to spark. the plate on the Right hand side appears to have a something black and charred (as if a piece of meat or grease has adhered to it)...


Usually the sparks are from exposed metal. Clean the oven, and the table and anything else you can inside. Then just try nuking a cup of water. That gives it something to work with and it won;t make any sparks itself. Then just see if the sparks are gone. If the paint has come off inside the cavity and exposed some metal you can get sparks but that usually means replacing the microwave. If its caused by an object or buildup then a good cleaning stops it.

Microwave sparked out now it does not work


You had something metal inside the microwave. Do you have a rack inside on a revolving tray? On my microwave, if the foot of the wire rack is not on the revolving tray, it will spark against the floor of the oven. Microwave will go around round pieces of metal - it will spark if it finds a flat surface. I dont think you did any damage to your machine but try to not do this again.

I hope this helps you.

GE microwave -crackles and sparks as if metal inside


The problem you are having is that the magnetron that does the heating is shorting out and it needs to be replaced before it damages the inside covering of the microwave. www.mwoparts.com is a good source for magnetrons or other similar sites. To replace is easy enough. Taking the cover off with the power off, you will find it behind and on the top right side of the control panel. It is held in place normally with just 4 screws and two wires with terminals attached to it. So removing and replacing is pretty straightforward. Just be sure all the power is off until you have everything back in place. Good luck.

Micowave sparks a fire


I had the same exact problem. My clips arced when I ran the unit and I also observed flames which was quite unsetteling. A work around for me, since I don't use the rack was I took it out then removed the clips. All that was required to remove the clips was a pair of plyers grabing each cliip at their base. I pulled firmly and there is alittle resistance but with a firm pull straight out they'll pop out.

But I have to say if you use rack your probably looking for a new mircowave.
