Question about Whirlpool GT4185SK Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Need stirrer cover for microwave

I have a Whirlpool Microwave Model: GT4185SKB-2 that was arching from the inside top. I took it to be repaired and the technician said I need a new stirrer and stirrer cover, but the cover is no longer made! The insides of this microwave was kept clean with no more than the usual spills that occur. This microwave was manufactured in February 2003. Any ideas where to purchase this part? The repairman is waiting for me to call him back on Monday before he just trashes my microwave. (side note: I have a Kenmore microwave that was purchased in December 1980 that still works!!!!!!) Thank you.

    The reason I would like to fix this microwave is that it fits inside a shelf with the kit around it. It is a pain to find another microwave that same size to fit etc...

I need to replace my microwave and they do not make the model I have anymore. Can you tell me which model would be the same size to fit into the built in area? Model No. GT4185SKB-Whirlpool


Listen, what you do is simply measure the area of your older nuker and get a replacement that will fit into the same space. Period.

What to do when the microwave is arching.


Hi.
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.

Getting sparks when in use Whirlpool GT4185SKB. This was made in 2003. What is the problem? If not possible to repair, is it still available new? Thanks.


If your microwave has a turntable its probably just burnt food inside or above the oven chamber that has carbonized. If it doesn't have a turntable its possible the stirrer above the oven chamber is stuck and not moving the microwaves around, therefore causing over heating and arcing. It also could be that the stirrer blades are hitting inside. Hope this helps

MH1160 Whirlpool Microwave Stopped Heating


Are you getting 110VAC on the primary leads of the high voltage transformer when you press "Start" to begin cooking?

If not, yhen it may simply be a bad cook relay (I do board repair) or a bad bottom or inside top door switch. See http://www.microwavecontrol.com/doorsw.htm

Microwave heating problems


Many over-the-range microwave ovens suffer from intermittent problems caused by excessive moisture from the range/stove entering the microwave cabinet and collecting on the circuitry. Often the problem is with one or two simple connections that may need tightening or soldering. But, to repair these components, the microwave cabinet needs to be opened. So we recommend that you seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Arching inside microwave


un plug it right away.

there are carbon deposit near the wave cover. the arching is coming from the magnetron to any exposed metal inside the unit or any carbon deposit since carbon is already conductive, it is sensing it as a metal.

remove and clean the interior of the microwave. polished and paint all exposed metal that you will find in the interior.

then test again the unit.
