Question about Emerson Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I placed food in the microwave over to heat for 19 seconds, when it was finished I smelled smoke coming from the oven. The food was fine. I unpluged the oven. I tried it a couple of days later, it works, but I'm concerned about it. Should I continue to use it?

The smoke probably came from the heated food. try using it next time with different kind of foods and also try it to the same kind of food that produces smoke but observe carefully what will happen.

Hi my oven suddenly started making loud weird noises and now does not heat any food. I smell smoke. What might be wrong?


Seems to me that your magnetron is a goner, check also the antenna shield, cover inside the oven cavity and replace both, you may need to clean and repaint burn surfaces inside oven cavity.

Tip

DANGER WARNING! Potential Hazard if your microwave was working and now doesn't...


If you have this model microwave and it was working fine, then one day it stopped heating items placed inside there are a handful of different issues that could be the problem. In my case it was intermittent, over a period of a few days it would sometimes work (heat) and sometimes not. NO MATTER if this is what your's is doing or if it stopped heating all together. If you decide to let it dry out, or not use it for a while to see if it was a one time occurrence, or whatever the reason, the first time you put something in and probably for the next 10 times at least (this assumes it starts to work again), make sure you are right there with it while it is cooking. Don't assume you can put something in, go do something and come back when the timer is beeping. There is a chance (as this happened to me) that your food inside will CATCH FIRE! Normal food item placed inside, no metal, nothing different than the numerous times before when this had been cooked but when we smelled smoke we came running. Fortunately it started and finished inside the microwave but that's not a guarantee, it could spread. Play it safe. Never had a problem like this before and never heard of a microwave cooking something until it caught on fire (especially since the time entered for the cook was 30 seconds) but it did.

Dead ge microwave


magnetrons work only when the unit is cooking
it smells like an insulation from overheating wire so could be a fuse and failing transformer
take it in for a proper diagnosis and quote but if it is over 2 years old the cost to repair could be more than a replacement unit

Panasonic NN-CT776SBPQ, just 2 y old, burning smell advise what could be the problem and how much it cost\r\n


check if the smell is coming from within the cabin. If so due to non usage of food covers some food particles ccould have got stuck while on heat to the sides of the cavity and results in heating and smoking. If so clean well with a dry clot and wipe out any moisture on the magnetron fitting slot.
However if the smell continues, check the capacitor to the magnetron or the magnetron or the main transformer itself.
You must open the cover and check for the origin of the smell.
estimate cost and decide.
Creddit if the advice helps.
