Question about Jenn-Air JMV8208AAS Microwave Oven
Jenn-air above-range microwave
Model JMV2808AAS Serial No. 10604813EV
I burned a package of pop corn in my microwave, ending with massive smoke and acrid odor! I've cleaned the interior several times, but as soon as the door is opened, my kitchen is permeated with the smell of burned popcorn!
I have no clue what I need to do to get rid of the odor!!
Please help me! :o)
Thanks, FixYa guys, for any guidance you can give me!
The smoke has permeated the works, so a more aggressive cleaning will be needed.

That does indeed sound like the mag is overheating and the thermostat is tripping, but it's probably not the steam.
Do you feel a good amount of air flowing through the vents?
If the cooling fan is not running or the air vents are blocked, that wil allow the magnetron to overheat.
If air flow is not a problem, then you may have a defective magnetron.
Assuming it's still under warranty, it would be best to let a Magic Chef-authorized servicer handle it.
