Hi. Our 1 1/2 year old Sharp KB6524PS Microwave Drawer: While cooking oatmeal, at start of cycle, the microwave started arcing, then smoking. Shut off at 15 seconds. Microwave-safe china used.


I expect the arcing came from the waveguide cover or aerial cover having either a crack or carbonised food particles on it.
A new cover may affect a cure if the magnetron is not damaged.

Well, my fiancee walked out of the room while she was heating some caramel while we were watching the SuperBowl. That resulted in a small fire in the microwave. Singed and blackened the cover on the roof...


Appliance Parts Pros has parts for your model, but they aren't cheap.

The cover keeps food splashes and vapors out of the waveguide. Garbage in the waveguide will degrade performance and could cause magnetron failure or another fire.

If the oven has already quit working (no power), the fire opened up the oven cavity thermal cutout (that's what the part is for). A generic replacement is about $5.

Maybe you've already seen this two-year old post on the same subject.

Roper microwave caught a paper towel on fire.


Why is this even a question?

Of course a paper towel can get hot enough to catch fire in a microwave. In addition, anything not specifically identified as microwave safe can melt, deform, crack, chip, spark, catch fire, explode, etc...
This is not a microwave problem.

KitchenAid KHHS179lss, fried magnitron?


If your magnetron was shorted, the unit would not heat at all.

The sound of a shorted magnetron is usually a loud hum-- but no or very little smell and no smoke.

Components in the High Voltage section -capacitor, diode- give problems if they short out.

When starting to reheat a loud crack, explosion, sound occurred,


As long as the door latches correctly there should be no danger. Some items will cause loud "explosions" in a microwave, such as whole potatoes when the skin has not been pierced. If the food contains pickling spices for example, the seeds will explode with a very loud sound like a gun.

As long as the oven continues to heat, there may be no other problem. But I suggest you stay near the unit when using it. Watch for smoke and be alert for strange odors. You don't mention the age of your oven but if it is new you can call GE customer care at 800 432 2737.

Faint buzzing sound smoke coming from back


The high-voltage transformer (or inverter transformer) has probably failed.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer.
