Loud Bang, then Light Stays On, Can't Cook

While cooking something in my microwave, I heard a loud bang. The food was done, but now the light always stays on. I can enter a new cook time, but when I hit start I just hear beeps. It won't turn on. Is there any easy fix to this? Thanks.

Something has failed in the high voltage supply to the magnetron. There are no user serviceable parts inside, but there are INSTANTLY LETHAL voltages present. Scrap the oven & get a new one, they are generally not worth reparing.

Arcing and bang noise

The arching is probably to the cabinet where paint is missing. This usually occurs at the edge where the microwaves travel into the cabinet. You can get microwave paint from your local appliance parts supplier. It's special paint that is non - conductive.

That is the magnetron faulty. The oven stops cooking, as the magnetron lose contact, when the magnetron restart working you hear that loud bang, and it restart radiating.

Replace the magnetron.

GE Spacemaker arcing?

It is possible, but you heard a similar bang earlier, from the description the magnetron is arcing on a occassion because it is failing, or there is bare metal exposed on the interior. I would recommend getting it checked out to make sure there is no safety hazard and have it resolved.

I would say the high voltage diode blew.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety and disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can get Sharp parts from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com

If it's not the high voltage diode, reply back for further help.
