Microwave arcing while off?

This morning, soon after my brother-in-law had finished microwaving some pizza, we were startled to find the microwave arcing quite a bit while it was *off*. We opened the door and the arcing stopped. It had caused the microwave to reset, asking us to hit "clock" to set the time again. I decided to unplug the unit instead.

I examined the interior of the unit, and it looks perfect -- no scorch or burn marks anywhere. But what baffles me is how could arcing of any kind occur if the magnetron was not energized? Could it have come from the capacitor?

I'd appreciate any feedback somebody could offer me. This microwave is less than six months old, so it is still within warranty, but it is important to me to know *how* something like this could happen. Thanks!

How to bake pizza in rival micro wave .??how to set it?


Unless the pizza was specifically packaged for microwave use, pizza cooking in a microwave is usually a bad idea. They don't turn out well. Although microwaves are referred to as "ovens", they really don't bake things, they boil them by heating the moisture in the product. Thus, pizza crust will not rise and get crispy unless the pizza was pre-made to be microwave reheated. Those pizzas will give instructions on how to microwave them.

Panasonic microwave


I would check the cooking instructions on the side of the pizzas packaging. If microwave cooking is not listed I would not recommend cooking it in a microwave as this could make the food unsafe to eat.

But if you're short of an oven I have found a guide on barbecuing a pizza:

If you use the microwave and forget to clear the time remaining. Or, if you just leave the food inside, the microwave will start itself in the Pizza mode. I guess it thinks the pizza needs to be reheated??...


You should have a 'clear' button on your oven.

Try to not open the door with the oven running. This causes arcing at the door safety interlock switches and they will fail.

You will know they failed when everything works but there is no "heat". No heat because the oven will think the door is open ... even though you know the door is closed.

Enjoy your new oven ... they are great. I dont know how the Mrs and I would eat if not for the mocrowave!!!
