Question about Hotpoint RVM1435 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Inside Microwave is Hot

Is it OK if the inside of a microwave is hot after use/when not in use? I placed a cup of coffee inside a microwave at school and noticed that it felt warm against my hand inside the microwave as I was placing the cup down. Not burning hot, but warm. I microwaved the cup for 30 seconds. When taking the cup out of the microwave, it still felt hot inside against my hand removing the cup. I don't think it is supposed to be warm inside. I don't think I've ever experienced this before. Is this a serious problem? Should I not use this microwave in the future?

The manual tells me to test the product by heating a cup of water for 30 seconds

I usually will test a cup of water for 60 seconds and it should be hot enough that you would not want to leave you finger in the water more than a couple of seconds. It would not be hot enough for most people to use for coffee or some other hot beverage but it would be hot enough to burn your finger if you leave it in there for very long. If it is still lukewarm after running for 60 seconds you probably have a problem with some of the major components and depending on the age of your microwave it might be cheaper to replace the microwave with a new one. Hope this helps you!

The microwave looks like it is working but no matter what I do there is no heat. I put in a cup of coffee and hit the minute button. It turned on and goes around but the coffee is cold. So I tried...

    I just melted alluminum foil onto the bottom of my oven...what can i do to remove it. It is a self clean and don't think i can run the self clean?

    The first rule in using a microwave oven is NEVER NEVER NEVER put metal of any kind inside. You are very lucky to have a microwave to clean and are able to talk about it.

    Clean it manually until every last bit is cleaned out ... cross your fingers and hope it works when you turn it on for the first time. Put a coffee cup full of water inside. Do not test for longer than 1 minute 50 seconds. If the water is hot, you can continue to use your oven.

    Heating the cup more than coffee

    make sure the stirrer motor located under the outer cover that distributes the microwaves is turning otherwise you will get hot and cold spots in the oven cavity
