Question about Microwave Ovens
Generally the oven appears to be fine except when using the microwave only on smaller items when it will cut out after a variable short time - anything from a few seconds to half a minute. Once the microwave has cut out it can be immediately started again with the 'start' button - Any ideas?
It may be that the magnetron is running a little hotter with a smaller load: Since fewer microwaves are being absorbed, more are being reflected back.
It may be a bad connection on the control board or a bad relay.

If not, maybe you can keep a microwave-safe container inside with about 1/2 cup of water to "preload" it. Some people do that, especially when making popcorn.
