    microwave question.

    Mon Oct 29, 2012 7:41 pm Groupie
    I was apparently standing in the right position, at the right angle......and noticed that when my microwave was operating the light on the inside was also visible on the outside. There was a tiny round hole of light on the counter top underneath the microwave while it was cooking. Is this normal? I'm ready to replace it ASAP. I don't want anything leaking out! Am I being stupid or should I simply replace it?

    You probably should contact the manufacturer.

    Did you get ahold of the manufacturer?

    I would be very concerned about being able to actually see the light emitted from the working oven.
    Call the manufacturer or retail store it was purchased at, if it's new.
    If it's a microwave that was already in the house when you moved in, means you might have to just replace it yourself.

    Here is a link to some good reading on microwave leakage, and some tips on what to do if you have or suspect a leak. If an above the oven microwave door seal is leaking it could be that a thorough cleaning will solve the problem. If not, I think replacing it or living without using it would be the best options.
    Hope this helps!

    I couldn't seem to get anywhere with the manufacturer, (Magic chef). It was not an expensive oven. I did read of a few tests that can be done in the home so I'll try them tonight. If not i guess I'll just go get a new one. My son is coming home next week and it's been two years since I've seen him, plus he's bringing his bride! My daughter is also coming home with her boyfriend, and it's been one year since I've seen her. The last thing I want to do is shop for a new microwave! I've been busy fixing/freezing food and getting the house in order for 6 people instead of two! Thanks for the help! I'll let you know if any of tests showed positive for leakage.
