Cooking popcorn the inside keeps sparking but only when I cook popcorn what is the issue

Asked by AndyBret July 10, 2019

Hi AndyBret - Thanks for reaching out to us regarding your microwave. An improper utensil, such as placing the corn in a bag or container, can cause this. Make sure it is fresh (not old/stale). We suggest to try a different brand/type of popcorn. Microwave poppers can be used. Follow the directions provided by the popper manufacturer. We do not recommend or suggest that a brown paper bag with oil be used. This is a potential fire hazard. View MICROWAVE - ARCING OR MAKING SOUNDS: - Keep in touch at - Sue

Asked by Angie March 24, 2019

Hi Angie - The turntable is 10.5". The cavity dimensions are 13.7"Width x 8.7"Height x 12.4"Depth. The dish, food or pan should have a least 1" clearance from the walls including the door for proper microwave ability.

Powerful little microwave
Customer review from logo
I found a wee bit difficult to find a microwave the size I didn’t want to small nor did I want anything too large to take up too much counterspace. This fit the bill perfectly you can easily heated dinner plates or warm something in a large bowl plenty of room on the turntable. It has enough power to warm things quickly and efficiently. I love it. I could not be any more pleased with it.

Awesome Microwave!
Customer review from logo
Aside that this microwave is beautifully modern, it works great. I’m still getting the hang of it and I haven’t hooked up the Bluetooth, but we use it everyday. I think the beeping sound when it’s done or if you set a timer could of been louder. Otherwise, it fit in my cabinet space where the old microwave was and it does it’s job wonderfully.

Wireless Control Feature
Customer review from logo
With your product’s wireless compatibility, we synced my Mom’s Alexa with the microwave to allow her to use voice commands to warm up food and beverages. My Mom is blind due to macular degeneration and your product’s wireless functionality has allowed to use a microwave again. Thank you!!!

Smart Speaker Enabled is Awesome
Customer review from logo
Good price. Wifi and smart speaker features are very nice, not just a gimmick. We haven't had it long enough to determine it's durability. The previous GE microwave we had only lasted three years.

Customer review from logo
The microwave for well in my small kitchen and cooks my food much more thoroughly than my previous one. The wireless control of the microwave using my phone is neat and the scan to cook saves time.
