Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I cooked oatmeal in the microwave this morning and had no problems. After I took the oatmeal out, I put in a glass dish with blueberries in it. When I shut the door and turned it on there was serious "lightning" inside the microwave. There was no metal whatsoever in there so I'm not sure what is going on...

The blueberries have electrolytes in them that cause this to happen. The microwave will be fine, but these and grapes will cause this lightning effect that you saw. Don't worry about it, just don't put the blueberries in again. Let me know if you need anything else.

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.

How do I cook oatmeal in my goldstar microwave?


Heat water to boiling, instead of heating the oatmeal for instant oatmeal. Add heated water to panel and cover bowl to maximize steam effect.

Microwave started smoking when i turned it on


Unplug the microwave and take it out check if any food items were present before u put oat meal inside it.IF there in nothing then check for any wire leaks.The smoke may have been caused by leakages in the microwave wire.Check both the things

Burns my popcorn constantly. is there a different setting i can put it on?


HELLO.

Solution to your microwave problem is given as below.

* 1 Set your Daewoo microwave on a countertop near an electrical outlet and plug it in. Open the door and place the circular roller guide in the center of the oven cavity, then place the glass cooking tray over it.

* 2 Set your food on a microwave-safe dish and then put the dish on the cooking tray and close the door. Make sure that it latches properly.

* 3 Turn the upper knob to select a power level. Power levels include "Defrost," "Med-High," or "High." If your Daewoo has a touch pad, touch the "Microwave" button once to set the highest power level. Touch it consecutive times to lower the power level.

* 4 Turn the lower knob to set the cooking time. For cooking times less than two minutes, turn the knob up past the two-minute mark, then back to the correct time. For touch pad models, enter in the cooking time with the numerical keys and then press "Start."

* 5 Open the door at any time to stop the cooking and check the temperature of your food. Shut the door to automatically continue cooking, or turn the timer knob to the right to add more time. For touch pads, press the "Stop/Clear" button, then key in a new cooking time and press "Start."

* 6 Open the door when the timer reaches the "Off" position and take out your food.

Thanks.

unplug microwave.
Take ALL dishes out of the microwave and do a proper check of the inside the cooking area. If you are sure that's ok put the glass dish back in if it has one.

Test that the oven and grill are still functional.?

Do they heat up? If they do then get one of those microwaveable bowls or dishes and put some water into it. Place it back into the microwave and do the check again on microwave heating.

Does it bang or spark again?
If it does and the other heating is OK then the Magnatron to me sounds as it's on it's last legs.
That does not mean you have to scrap the microwave if it is the Magnatron. as a new one can be purchased and installed.

Use a microwave safe dish and put in some water. Now open door and keep the dish on the glass plate. Close the door, select the power to be medium or high. Or choose a fast cook. Press 0 and the start button as the microwave should start up. If there is no heat after the cycle then it is possible that the magnetron, the capacitor or the fuse is open.

Turn table shattered while making pop corn. Cuisinart ModelCmw100


You can order a replacement dish here. The dish shattered because the heat from the bag of popcorn was too much for it. If you look at the owner's manual for almost every microwave, they tell you not to put popcorn directly on the glass dish, but to put it on another plate.

The oven should be safe to use. Just look for any burned spots on the paint in the bottom of the cooking cavity.
