It's probably either the magnetron, high voltage transformer, or high voltage rectifier diode.

If the original one-year warranty has expired, the magnetron should have about a 5-year warranty. You will still have to pay labor charges.

You can save the appx. $50-75 service call fee by taking it to the shop yourself.

I bought a house with this Microwave - no instructions etc.Should there be a glass tray for it - I know it's an older model


If there is a recess for a tray and a drive in the middle of the floor of the oven, then it should have a rotating tray. My microwave is about 30 years old and has a rotating tray.

I recently smashed the glass tray/shelf. Can I replace it with a standard metal oven shelf to fit?


No! if you installed that you will cause the magnetron to arc and probably short out destroying your oven.

Caught fire


>Should a microwave be obsolete after 5 years?

Not at all. You can just order a new rack support (or a whole set of them).

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Quite often this arcing is due to grease or food particles stuck between the holder and the hole it goes into, etc.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.
