Question about Sharp R-1610 Microwave Oven
Smoke and strong burning plastic smell in microwave oven
Burning plastic, not food? A component has overheated badly then, with a plastic case. The main suspect would be the high voltage capacitor in the magnetron supply. This is cheap and easily replaced ONLY IF you know what you are doing and can diagnose the fault. If you don't then DO NOT take the case off the unit as fatal voltages can be present inside even if the unit is unplugged.
I'd just buy another, as they are generally uneconomical to have repaired by a service tech.

SOURCE: sparks in oven
the burning is normally caused by a small particle of food getting stuck on the waveguide cover, this then carbonises and starts to arc. replacing cover should return oven to normal
