I get an occasional spark when microwave is in use


Presuming that you have iliminated the possibility of any metal objects that are not meant to be in the machine being in there (and this includes dishes and other items with silver or gold leaf on them, which WILL spark and burn!) then take a look inside the oven its self. You will find a waveguide cover. It is usually a strange flakey silvery plastic/card like material called Mica and is usually on the same side of the microwave wall as the control panel (So if the picture on this thread is accurate, I will guess the Mica cover is on the right hand wall inside as you look at the machine from the front) . Over time, the magnatron (the thing that creates the microwave energy) will often burn a hole through the mika, or cause a dark brown or black burn mark in it. If this cover is even slightly damaged then it may well cause sparking inside the machine. These covers are designed to be removed and you can buy replacements for them from electrical stores.

When plugging in a Sharp R-33st microwave, nothing happens except a flashing time, no buttons seem to work, any ideas?


it sounds like this is not a new microwave,, is it getting on in years?
if the microwave was discounted from the mains when it was pluged back in the power surge could have blown the circuit bord inside it,, this is quite common, it may be cheaper just to buy a new microwave than spend good money on an old week unit

My microwave turns off when I start it


its the program bord inside your microwave playing up and to be realy honest its realy not worth paying out good money to get it fixed even if you could get the new bord,,,its better to just buy a new microwave there so cheap now you can pick them up for less than £50.00p and it would cost you all of that just for the repair man to come and look at it,,,,why do you think they all drive round in big cars?

Arcing inside microwave


unless you are familiar with these, leave it alone. Over time small particles of food become carbonized inside the oven, hence the electrical display. the solution is to clean it after every use.

Arcing inside and there is now a small hole on the panel side. Is this fixable?


Hi,

It looks like there's lightning (arcing) inside my microwave When you see arcing inside your microwave, it's because of food or liquid left in the cavity or on the wave-guide cover:

  • If the wave guide has any burn spots, replace it and clean the unit well.

  • If the cavity has any burn spots, spot-sand it smooth and touch it up with microwave interior paint.

Note… If there are any burn holes in the cavity, don't use the unit-seek help from a qualified appliance repair technician.

Thanks for contacting Fixya

Microwave is arcing on the antenna blade.


Arcing is often the result of the cover over the magnatron (The thing that produces the microwaves) being aged, burned or damaged. If you look inside the oven, you will see a cover (usually square or round and around 3-5 inches across depending on the machine)made from a flakey silver plastic/fibre material. If this is burned or has a hole, it needs replacing and this will probably cure your problem.

This sort of thing is caused by food particles burning and maybe the wave guide cover has a hole in it. They do not, if used correctly, burn as you describe.
