Question about Emerson MW8107WA Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Loud pop with smoke

I plugged the microwave into a new outlet and i heard a loud pop. There was also a burnt smell. I opened the door and saw smoke coming from the vent behind the front panel. The inside microwave light still works but the front panel is blank and the buttons are not working. Is it toast or is there a fuse i can check? Where do i get replacement parts?

Thanks

    The outlet is in a new house I just moved into. New to me but a pretty old build. It probably is the outlet. I'll check it with my multimeter. I guess I need a new microwave. Thanks for the help.

Don't know why just plugging it into a new outlet would cause that unless you have a problem with that outlet. Sounds like it may have burned out the low voltage circuitry. I would advise having the outlet checked and certified safe before plugging anything else into it. Also, it sounds like the oven is toast, (Sorry!)

Make sure your microwave is fully cleaned out of any old dried food residue and that you are not using any kind of metal items in your microwave when you cook because this will certainly cause smoking and sparking inside your microwave.

Most like you had some corrosion or food particles stuck to your WAVEGUIDE COVER PLATE.

Here is a link to a short video that show you exactly how to replace the wave guide cover yourself:

It is possible that the interconnection link(s) between the two sockets in the duplex outlet have blown apart. Turn off power at the electrical panel for this circuit, remove the outlet from it's box, and check the interlink on both sides. If obviously burned, replace the socket. A better option is to run another duplex cable from the breaker box to the outlet from a new breaker, cut the interconnections on the new socket, and wire the new cable to the isolated part of the socket. This supplies full power to each half and allows both units to run at the same time.

Saw sparks and heard a pop noise when we hit ''start'' on microwave


We just had the same problem - spark, loud noise, and then dead. At first I replaced the ceramic fuse and the same thing happened immediately. A local appliance store tested the transformer and found it was "bad." I purchased a used transformer from the store for about $35. I installed both of these myself with little effort.
