If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers who can supply spares as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

What would cause the glass tray in the microwave to shatter


  • The glass tray had a hairline crack or stress fracture that was not visible
  • It got a little too hot in one area
  • The expansion from the heat caused the fracture to expand and therefore crack and break
An accidental bumping of the microwave plate on the countertop while going from the microwave to the dishwasher might set up the above situation. The spoon your seven year old left in the mac and cheese might have arced and nicked a small piece of the glass. Whatever the cause, microwave trays break and they break for a lot of reasons.

All foods cooked in the microwave produce heat. Microwaves themselves are not hot, but the foods cooked in a microwave get hot - some much hotter than others.
Even though most microwave glass trays are tempered, they are not designed to hold up under high temperatures. You will see most microwave trays stamped with the words "For microwave oven use only" This is to let us know that it's probably not a good idea to use the trays in a conventional oven.
Any air pockets, cracks or gaps in the glass can enlarge under heat. Since glass isn't very receptive to being stretched, breakage can occur.

I have a GE Over the Range CVM 2072 Microwave. The touchpad screen cracked so it doesn't respond and is frozen.


The part they are replacing is really not that expensive. Where the money comes in is the labor. Most of that cost is just to get them to show up. If you can remove it yourself (with help of course) you can take it in to be repaired. Of you could wait to find one on sale with the upcoming Christmas season and hopefully you can find a deal with free installation. The glass of the touchscreen should not have cracked. It would have taken quite a bit of pressure to crack the glass. Sorry for the bad news.

Our Kenmore microwave oven recently stopped heating. The lights, turning plate and controls all work but with no cooking is occurring. The last time I attempted to heat something up I heard a cracking...


The most likely cause is a bad magnetron, "heats food" the other two possibilities are the high voltage capacitor and diode. The cost to repair will a approach a new microwave oven.

While cooking popcorn lastnight in the microwave the glass plate that rotates snapped in half. My husband picked it up right away so it wasn't hot. He put in a microwave safe plate into cook more popcorn...


All that is required to crack/break an item that is microwave safe is a fine crack or deep scratch. Water will expand so quickly as the microwave energy heats up the water, it turns to steam and cracks the plate with the pressure build up.

I have a Black 4 cup Mr Coffee with luminate lighting and time display programer so that I can have coffee brewed in the morning when I get up for work at 4:30am my problem is the coffee pot has started...


I had a black and decker coffee pot do same thing and it was brand new. here is how I fixed it.
make sure the filter seated down good. If you look at the top of the coffee pot it should open up the little valve of the coffee filter holder. also mine had a little water spout above the coffee filter that swings over the filter. make sure it is over the filter. I know my coffee pot is different, but I think the problem is the opening from filter to coffee pot is not open some how so the water is flooding over the filter and going out the sides onto counter
hope this helps

Can i put the crock pot bowl in the oven and cook in it


A Crock Pot is made of crockery and is OK to bake in the oven. Don't let it get into contact with cold items, water etc, when it is straight out of the oven or it will crack, like any other crockery utensil. Treat it like glass.

My microwave was making a popping sound. then while i was nuking some popcorn, i heard a loud bang. when i opened the microwave, i saw that the glass turntable plate on the inside had split into two...


What usually happens to make the plate break or shatter is heat build up in one place, caused by spillage of food stuffs that have "welded" themselves to the plate or a scratch on the plate allowing water to enter and when it gets hot explodes the plate.
There, from what you have explained and the information you have supplied, no reason to doubt the machine. A new plate and it should work again with no problem.
Hope that puts your mind at rest.

I have a Monier crock pot which is approx. 30 years old and still working well but the plastic lid has a crack in it. Is it possible to obtain a new lid


Contact Monier, they may have a replacement.
If not take the plastic lid with you and go shopping, look for glass lids on pots and pans that matches the shape of your plastic lid.

I have a Kenmore Brew Wave that has cracked in the plastic unit that you put the water in to make coffee. Where can I find a replacement. Had a job getting a new carafe when it cracked.


Sears do not make the carafe anymore but this is something that I do that may help?
I took the top off the carafe an just placed it to the top of my coffee cup and sat the top part the holds the coffee on top of it and just poured the hot water from a cup I heated in the microwave. Do it very slowly until you get the it right for you, it works for and I hope it will do the same for you guys ?
