Question about Danby DMW1153 Microwave Oven
Hello - we recently had a small mishap in our kitchen, and our microwave received a small dent in its outer casing. I have always heard that you shouldn't use a dented microwave, but since there is no damage to the inside compartment of the microwave, I am not sure whether it is safe or not. The dented area is on the side closest to the clock and button panel, not the side closest to the interior of the microwave. The bottom edge of the outer casing has slightly popped loose. The microwave is four or five years old; it is a GE Turntable, model JES1039WF 001. Thanks so much for your help!
If you haven't compromised the door opening or inner compartment, then it is more than likely OK to use. The magnetron ( which generated the microwave energy ) has a waveguide that focuses that energu into the cooking compartment and a small dent to the cabinet normally has no impact on its safety.. Hope that helps..
If you are overly concerned with that, then you would need a technician that has an RF Power Meter to check it.. If it were me, and the dent was small.. I would just use it...
