Question about Microwave Ovens

Open Question

I had a cockroach infestation which destroyed the instruction manual for the Deluxe Food and Vegetable Cutter, made by Foodco Appliance Corp, Waterloo Indiana 1961. Am wanting to see if I can get a replacement manual for assembling and use and hope that you might be able to help. They are available on Amazon in used versions for $2.50 but seems a lot of effort for a pamphlet. Please help if can, regards Tomacin

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, and a list of Dealers for spare parts, as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

What to do when the microwave is arching.

If your microwave cavity is crossed by luminous discharges of current , and you see flashing arches of current from the magnetron area to other areas of the microwave oven cavity, then we commonly say that the microwave is arching.

The first thing to do in this case is disconnecting power immediately, and trying to remove the cause of arching if possible.

Arching will damage the microwave oven, if it goes on for enough time.
Any metal conductive object, such as a spoon or a fork will cause arching if left inside the oven when the microwave device (the magnetron) is operating.
Ensure that there is no metal object inside, while the appliance is operating.
Some vegetable with an high amount of metal , and some other ingredient, like bacon , are known to cause arching in sporadic cases.
In that case add a little water to the food in the oven and try again.

Sometimes recycled paper, or use of containers that are not for microwave can also cause arching. In that case use a different container, or paper.
If there is arching and bad burnt-plastic-like smell with any food being cooked, that means that there is a major problem, and that if the oven is used in this condition, you may get further damage to the appliance. In some case there may also be safety concerns.

As said, you get arching inside microwave when inside the cavity there is a strongly conductive object, such as a metal object or carbon residue.
You also get arching when the oven cavity is damaged.
In this last case the cavity may have lost insulation, and it is better having the oven repaired by a technician, that will also conduct a radiation leak test on the appliance to prove its safety.

To attempt fixing the problem by yourself , you can do the following:

Disconnect power cord.

Check inside the oven cavity, ensure that there is no foreign object inside (such as a small screw). Check also under the turntable.

Check that the light and the magnetron covers are well in place.

Clean the cavity thoroughly, clean also the lamp enclosure if this can be accessed. Carbon residue from food may be causing the arching.

If after cleaning the arching is still there, that means that the cavity is damaged. In that case better calling a technician.
A damaged microwave may loose insulation , and this may be very dangerous for health.

If you want to contact a technician, the best thing to do is ringing the phone number listed on the appliance owners manual.

Sharp 1200w microwave seems to be tripping lightly (can hear clicking noises)and cause heating to be irregular

Clean the food off the inside top of the microwave Now,Or that noise you are hear will stop along with the microwave. The food gets on the Formica Squire which is how the micro waves heat your food. 1st unplug the Microwave then spray the inside of the unit with something like Fantastic or something strong and use glove so you don't burn you hand,Also if you have a scrub brush use it,And clean all the soap out and raise very well.

I have no instructions how to use my george foreman grill can you help

Hi Mandy,
This is a very straightforward machine, it is simply "Plug and cook". Plug in the unit, place your food on the surface, close the lid, just monitor it as you go, and unplug when finished. I suggest using some pan spray beforehand to keep food from sticking. Pretty simple appliance with no fuss no muss.

I have an Emerson MW89998B microwave. When trying to use it will spark and smoke. Any suggestions on what might be causing this. Have cleaning it and clean it weekly.

It is possible that your magnetron is heating up some soft spots inside the oven or there is a damage to the feed wires to the maggnetron or to the main capacitors. But before we start, I want you to be very careful. Remove the power and use a good flash light to look inside for the mountings near the magnetron-- a square/round fitting top right side of the oven when viewing from the front. If there is any possibility that your have not used food covers, some food could have splurted on to this and made it soft due to heating on the food. If so, you will have make a clean dry wipe, let it dry for some time before you test. If fault stays visualise the spot of smoke and invetigate . If you are powering the set with the cover removed please be very careful. replace the capacitor, wires or any insects/ cockroaches that have got entanged. hope you find this advise helpful Good day

Touchpad is not working

Hello :

If touch pad has gotten wet, then allow to dry for several days. Avoid spraying cleaning liquid near touch pad.
Check for insect infestation. Insects (cockroaches most frequently) will appear under clear surface of touch pad or under readout window; they like the warmth of the circuit boards.
Place window mesh over vent to keep insects out.

good luck .
