I have a microwave that is shooting fire inside. Where can I send this. It is definitely a bad item.


You're probably using something metallic or reflective, like aluminium foil to "substitute" for the missing glass turntable. Place the bacon on a microwave-safe dinner plate, and you should be OK.

Burning smell and loud grinding noise


If that grinding noise sounds a little like gargling into a coffee cup, that's a defective magnetron.

Microwave made a loud grinding noise while heating a cup of coffee for 1 minute,now everything is shut off. We checked the curcit breakers all ok, and there is power going to it!


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Turntable Motor If the microwave is loud or noisy the turntable motor might be worn out. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.
Stirrer Motor If the microwave is loud or noisy the stirrer motor might be worn out. The stirrer is a metal blade which slowly turns around, deflecting the microwave energy in a random pattern inside the microwave oven. As the motor nears the end of its useful life it begins to make grinding noises. The microwave will not heat food evenly without this stirrer, the motor should be replaced.

Exhaust Fan Motor If the microwave is loud when running the fan motor might be

Magnetron If the microwave is loud or noisy only when cooking, the magnetron tube might be defective. The magnetron uses high voltage, high current DC power to generate the microwave frequency that cooks the food. Under normal circumstances the magnetron is nearly silent. However if it is damaged or nearly burned out it can begin emitting high pitched or growling noises. It's not normally dangerous to use a microwave oven when it makes these noises, but they are an indication that the magnetron is almost dead and will need to be replaced.

Microwave not heating and giving burnt plastic smell


STOP USING IT!! UNPLUG IT!! Microwaves are inexpensive now. It will cost you more than a new one costs, to get it fixed.

GE XL 1800 quit heating


I don't like to pass on your problem but it sounds very much like either the high voltage supply ot the magnetron has bit the dust.
Either one would make the repair marginal at best.

This is apparently not a very good unit, many microwaves jsut kind of fade away as their magnetron emissions decay.

This one seems to have a bad rep. look at this link:

Sorry, have owned a lemon or two myself.

Makes load noise and wont heat anything


I would first suspect a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or possibly a defective magnetron.

If the noise is just a loud buzz, I would suspect the diode. If it has more of a hollow sound - like someone gurgling into a coffee cup - then I would suspect the magnetron.

Here are some links you or a friend can use for test help, but PLEASE read their safety warnings first:

Microwave making noise, not heating


Was the noise something like someone growling into a coffee cup?

As odd as that sounds, that's a common sound for a bad magnetron to make, a hollow gurgling or sizzling.

It may be the magnetron, but generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Microwave makes loud buzzing sound when on and no heat


Have you tried putting a cup of water in it and cooking on a low power level? If it buzzes only when it is on the cook cycle, that would narrow it down. More detals might help us help you, including the model number.

Turntable does not turn and fan won't exhaust


The second problem is probably defective door switches, or it may be a problem with the control panel, which we repair nationwide for only $32.50. On my Web site, I have info on safety, disassembly, and diagnosing and replacing door switches: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk Running it empty has damaged the magnetron. It will work for a while, but it will eventually have to be replaced. A good parts source is here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
