Arcing or Sparking – Cookware issue




○ Cause          

      Are the cookware and/or utensils being used inside microwave oven approved for such usage

     and considered microwave-proof or safe?


○ Troubleshooting             

     Not all cookware and utensils should be used in microwave ovens. Some, especially made from

     metal, risk causing sparking to the extent of arcing and permanently damage the inside cavity.

     Do not use anything in the microwave oven that is not microwave safe. This includes metal

     utensils, wire twist ties, etc. Damage to the interior cavity may occur.
