It could bet warm after use. The is a lot of heat generated from running and the case would get warm after a few minutes of use.

I used my GE Sensor Microwave oven tonight to cook a frozen macaronni and cheese. The cooking time was 16 minutes on high. The oven was noticeably blowing out hot air and very warm to the touch on the...


It will normally get pretty warm after a minute or two of cooking, but the important thing is to be sure the vents are not clogged or blocked, and that the internal cooling fan is working.

Microwave felt very warm on top. after cooling


That's often a sign of impending failure of the magnetron or a failed or failing internal cooling fan.

One should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking, and it's even more critical any time there is a problem or potential problem.

With the model number, we can offer more specific advice or an estimate.

But since FixYa does not notify us of follow-ups, you will need to post a new help request.

Overheating bottom Kenmore 66560652000


Hi,

I would suspect that when the microwave oven was on the table the vent or air openings were restricted by the table. Without free flowing air the control and other components could build up heat. It is doubtful that you built up enough heat to damage anything as this unit has more than one over temperature safety devices built into it.

That being said, the excess heat could weaken something internally especially on the control that would cause it to fail sooner than later in life.

My advice would be to leave it unplugged until it is mounted back on the wall per the instructions and use it then as normal. If it fails in the next year or so replace it at that time.

Microwave heats outside too.


This is normal. However, if you are worried that your microwave is old and may be leaking radiation you may want to replace it, as they are actually under one hundred dollars for the most part; or you can get a little microwave radiation test kit at home depot or lowes for about twenty dollars.

Microwave message says to replace charcoal filter. User manual states charcoal filter is used if unit is not vented outside. Our unit is vented outside


External vent systems have the charcoal filter removed, generally at the time of installation, as it is not needed for this application.
The charcoal filter removes odors from internal recycled airflow.
There should be an aluminum grease filter that you can remove to clean in a warm soapy solution, let dry, and reinstall.
