Question about Microwave Ovens
Is it only smoking or do you hear any buzzing sound ?
Posted on Sep 12, 2010
It most likely is the transformer heating up. Look for discoloration on the transformer. Caps can burn up, but they usually swell up and explode or crack. Also, I've read that it isn't good to use the self clean function on many types of microwaves, as this can cause problems. This situation isn't normal, and you need to contact Whirlpool about this problem. I couldn't find your unit on a recall list, but perhaps it should be (some of the GSC models were on the list).
Here's Whirlpool's support page:

Note the comments about using a commercial oven cleaner
("Easy Off" is one oven cleaning product that works well)
One product I find that works well on all oven surfaces is Mr Muscle kitchen cleaner. I have a real hard time finding it in the USA stores. Product image and description Link below:
