(06/13/2019) The consumer set the microwave oven for 10 minutes to bake a potato. The potato was placed a handmade cotton pouch that the consumer purchased from a vendor. About 8 minutes into the baking, the consumer came into the kitchen and saw smoke coming from the microwave. She opened the door to the unit, she saw that the pouch was in flames.

The consumer stated that she thinks the problem is with the microwave because this is not the first time that she used the pouch to bake potatoes. The microwave is still usable.

The consumer called the number that was listed on the unit's label and was advised that the number is for Wal-Mart and is not associated with Rival. The number is [REDACTED].
