    :confused: My microwave maybe has any faults!! I always smelt something burning when using it, only first seconds. I examined and scrubbed it, but nothing leftover inside of this discount shopping microwave. Have you come across this problem? Do you know why? The brand of my microwave is Bosch , and the model number is HBC84K521B, Bosch HBC84K521B Compact Built-in Oven and Microwave. Do you know why? Please let me know! Thank you!

    This is a common problem. Apparently something was burnt in there previously and the smell worked it's way into the inner workings.

    Some remedies include microwaving a cup of vinegar for two minutes... The house and microwave will smell of vinegar for awhile, but it may get rid of it.

    Other suggestions include lemon juice, baking soda with water added, spraying with enzymatic cleaner which is sold in pet departments, or microwaving a cup of vanilla extract then leaving the cup in there for 12 hours.

    Hope you get it figured out and welcome to TFF!
