Microwave smells

Hi all,

I'm wondering if any of you can provide some much needed advice. When I heat up food, my microwave smells like stale oil.

I've scrubbed the inside of the microwave with baking soda and vinegar, and I've tried microwaving water and lemon and allowing it to sit, placing baking soda into the microwave to absorb odours, and crumpling newspapers into the microwave. All have not gotten rid of the smell.

Might any of you have some suggestions as to how I can eliminate the odour?

Thanks so much
