Food fire food overcooked and smoked in microwave bad odor and now the food is gone but the smoke odor is left. how do I get rid of the smell now. microwave itself is unharmed thank you, hank


You should be able to get a cleaner spray suitable for use in microwaves. Give the insides a good spray and a good clean, it should take it away. Make certain there is no burnt deposits anywhere.

My whirlpool microwave built in oven emitted smoke


Hi Dagmar
So... you've indicated that your microwave oven has an obvious serious problem.
You didn't have any questions?
The Answer would be pretty obvious anyway!

Cheers
Better Luck with the New One!


FURTHER:


The main component in a Microwave oven is the Magnetron. This generates the microwave energy which is released into a resonant tuned cavity (antenna) that heats the food. Testing the Magnetron would require specialised tools & knowledge. Beside the fact that it would be very dangerous. The Magnetron is often driven by electronics like a switch mode power supply & an inverter. It is possible that the switch mode or inverter has failed and burned out. There can be Electrolytic Capacitors that have failed (leaking or popped) causing the electronics to fail. If you have some expertise in this area then you could open up the unit and inspect for what has failed. Unplug power and never operate the unit while inside. Pull out suspect electronics module's, repair and seal unit up before turning on. The mere fact that you had heated internals is a warning of major problems.
Really, you are better off & safer taking the unit in to a Microwave Repair Technician.

Clouds of smoke started coming from the inside of it and we had to put it outside the smoke was coming out of the holes on the inside


It is time to replace the microwave oven, the problem you are describing is one or more issues, the high voltage transformer, high voltage capacitor, the magnetron, and the high voltage diode all play a key roll in generating the high voltage which translates into heating the food. The cost in my view will run high and would be put to better use buying a new microwave oven.

Intermittant loud "pop" when starting my microwave


Clean well the inside of the oven, if you keep having the problem and the inside is clean, then the magnetron is starting to go.

I would like to know how to clean the inside of my microwave,the wrong cup was put in,and it caught on fire ,and I can't get smoke stain out. Thank you,Molly Dickerson


The smoke stain is almost impossible to remove as smoke tends to get in the pigment of the paint.

If there's a burn smell, you can try simmering a lemon juice and water mixture for several minutes in the microwave. You can also set a plate of charcoal briquettes inside and leave the door closed overnight (DON'T turn the microwave on - just let it sit). Keep the charcoal inside when not using the microwave and it will absorb a lot of the odor.
