Question about Microwave Ovens
Has been working great till this past weekend, was cooking Turnip...Microwave shut off and then came back on in about 10 minutes. Now each time I try and use it it does the same thing and before it does it the turntable is not turning its usual speed. I have checked the turntable rollers etc.
.The magnetron is probably the thing overheating.
Proper airflow is indeed crititcal to keeping it cool, but once it goes bad, it can overheat each time it's used.

The problem is related to a thermal cutoff shutting down the unit due to the something (turntable motor?) overheating due to poor ventilation. You need to open the unit and ensure that all aeration opening are free of dust and grease. Compressed air works great for cleaning the internal components.
