Smoke coming out of microwave

Dear friends, i have a LG convection microwave MC8083MLR. i was planning to bake a cake in it and so in preparation for it, tried to preheat the microwave to a temp of 180 degrees. however in between the process smoke started coming out of the upper ventilation slots. i immediately switched it off and disconnected the supply. wonder what's gone wrong as this is a brand new system and it was my first cooking in it!! plzzzzzzzzzz HELP.

    thanx for your reply. the smoke was quite a lot and ther are no panels or seals to be removed before preheating. the manual also doesn't address anything like this.

    How much smoke? If it was just a little, then it may be normal "burn off".

    If it was a lot, maybe there is some seal or panel that should have been removed before use?

    Does the manual address anything like this?

What is convection cookong

A convection microwave is a combination of a standard microwave oven and a convection oven. It allows food cooked in the convection microwave to be cooked quickly, yet come out browned or crisped as in a convection oven. However, most cakes cannot be baked in a microwave oven - only those without an open grain structure, such as brownies. There are microwaves which contain electric browning baking elements. A true convection microwave has a high velocity forced air fan to circulate the hot air uniformly.

You should be using convection mode first of all. It's not clear from your post if you are. Also looks like you're oven is baking at higher temperature than it says. Try 170 degrees for 13-14 mins instead.
