I reheated a slice of pizza in my microwave using the 30 sec. button. Soon after it started the microwave began making a humming sound. At the end of 30 seconds, the timer stopped, the turntable stopped and the light went off but the humming continued and I could hear the pizza continue to sizzle. Next smoke started coming out of the vents and the microwave itself was getting hot. Finally, my neighbor came over and unplugged the microwave. The food inside was seriously burnt. It is out on the deck cooling off.
