Yes! , this is dangerous , be cause it sounds like the magnetron that sends out the microwaves may not be controlled , thus heating the outside and will be sending waves out of the microwave!
you will need a qualified electronic repair shop to deal with this, these microwaves are very dangerous and that unit should not be used untill it has been fixed , for the safety of you and anyone who uses or is around when in use.
these microwaves that are sent across the air to heat the food is burning it and it can do the same to you or any one who is around it while in use
even when in working normal conditions the waves still leak out some , so i always walk away when heating food in the microwave and i advise others to do the same
so the magnetron will need replaced and maybe another component but it needs to be tested to make sure nothing else is damaged also
hope my help has pleased you and that you can give me a fixya rating( all others hurt our rating) as i work on these and i know the symptoms that happen and the causes
again hope you can give me the fixya! , thanks , and if you need any other help, just ask me!

I have a R-8520 Sharp carosel microwave. Previously the convection stopped working, now it does work but heats up too much to the extent that fumes come out from the back of the microwave and it smells of...


I think it might be a good idea to consider having the appliance replaced, the unit is a fire hazard and judging by the burning smell it is on the way out.

Dometic microwave model dotr12cb runs but does not heat


The most likely cause is the magnetron or the inverter board, if the microwave was manufactured 7 years or less. It is cheaper in most cases to replace the microwave oven.

Oster microwave OM1101NOE wont heat carosel turns light is on time runs but not heat


There are three things to consider, the magnetron "heats food" high voltage diode "sometimes cracks" and the high voltage capacitor "sometimes shorts" one or more can cause the symptom of no heat. I recommend a professional to assess.

My ifb microwave oven is getting hot outside while


Normally when u cook food in microwave the fod is cooked by microwaves, which means the heat is generated with in food. The temperature inside is never too hot and all the heat produced is absorbed with in the food.

On the other hand when the grill is switched on, a separate heatting element gets switched on. You can see this red hot element on the top side of inside of microwave. the heat from this element gets transferred to food through air circulation. But partof heat also gets transferred to the walls of microwave oven. This is the reason the wall feel hot during use of grill.

As i see ther is no problem with the microwave itself. Jut kep delicate thngs a bit away from the microwave.

Microwave does not heat food or liquid


I hate to tell you this but your magnetron may be shot. Its the part that actually makes the microwaves. The best thing I can recommend is get a new oven, magnetrons are expensive and not easy to replace.
