Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 10 months ago.

The smoke bomb is due to the oven going too long since your last self clean so what you'll want to do is pick up some Easy Off for Self Cleaning Ovens and clean out the floor and sides of your microwave by hand as best you can. Then run it through a self clean cycle with any fans and vents you have turned on in your kitchen as well as open your windows. There will still be smoke, but it shouldn't be as bad if you wipe out most of the residue.
