Question about Microwave Ovens
Once the cook time is set and the start button is pressed, the microwave continues to run fine until the end of cook time. It beeps 2 or 3 times and after the beeping, it will shut off. I don't think I have seen this on another microwave, so I don't think it is normal, but it works great otherwise. It is a used microwave, so there is no warranty.
Microwaves are cheap, if you are worried replace it, With what i k now about electronic clocks I am willing to bet it's not a safety issue.
If you want to be sure you could measure the amount of current it is drawing from the outlet and compare this with the specifications on the back of the microwave. Either get a "kill-a-watt" device, a multimeter with a current probe, or if it draws less than ten amps according to the sticker on the back you could use a regular multimeter to measure the current by hooking it up in series. The "kill-a-watt" is a brand name for a device that plugs into the outlet and then you would plug the microwave into. It will measure the amount of electricity it uses and display it on a screen. This device or the current probe would be the safest as you don't touch the wires. Hooking up the multimeter in series requires splicing wires.

The easy answer is to shorten the time you set. But be careful not to open the door when food is still cooking, or else you will expose yourself to unnecessary amounts of radiation.
