have a fairly old panaonic microwave, it has been working o.k.

Resolved Question:

have a fairly old panaonic microwave, it has been working o.k. but on opening the oven last night it smelt of fish, washed it out well this morning, still smells of fish and have not cooked fish for months. Really only use it for heating up frozen peas, baked beans, and milk. A bit concerned in case it is an electrical fault and it should not be used.
Many thanks

Hi, welcome to Just answer

Please follow these steps to remove the smell and let me know how it goes

First, take a microwave safe bowl and pour water in it...then place it inside till the time it starts boiling

KevinWhiteJA :

after it boils take it out and pour either vinegar or lime juice in that bowl and then run it in a normal cycle for around 5 minutes

KevinWhiteJA :

then take a kitchen towel and pour some salt on it ....and with the microwave unplugged clean it from inside completely
