Microwave venting

Is it a combo built into the oven or stand alone?
If its build into something then no.
If its free standing look under the microwave and see if there are air vents in it. If there are are they clean. Microwaves dont vent persay, they just blow hot air out. You dont want to modifity the case because it will expose you to direct and scatter Microwaves. And that is not good.
A easy fix. When you are done making a TV dinner or whatever, keep the door open for a while. The microwave is hot and it will evaporate.
If there is standing water in it, contact the company and get them to fix it, but checking for proper intake and venting is needed. Meaning make sure they are clean.

There should be 3 'fuses' inside a microwave. The 'line' or monitor fuse, the magnetron fuse or TCO (thermal cut out) and the cavity temp fuse. I'm trusting that you have verified that the outlet is 'hot' first. Be careful !!

Where is the high voltage fuse on a microwave

The thermal fuse monitors the magnetron temperature and cuts power, if it gets to hot and resets in no more than 20 to 30 minutes. Unplug microwave oven, remove top, "several screws" look over to the right, thermal fuse is mounted on top on the inner chassis, "round and thick with 2 wires clipped on"

Inside of microwave hot to the touch

is it newer?

also i am wondering why you are touching the inside of your microwave ? (not being funny)

If it is something that is causing water to boil and steam when flicked/dropped on the inside you might have a concern, but you have to look at the wattage of newer microwaves as it progresses so will the heat generated inside.

i can say if you dont feel safe having it in your home then sell it or take it back but as long as it is not catching fire then i would say it is within normal operating perimeters.

Microwave don't work

You didnt mention if the oven worked or not. Its not blowing the fuse?? Ok it could be as simple as the Diode or capacitor but dont try to touch the capacitor terminals as it holds a nice charge.. Turn on the oven for a bit with a cup of water inside and let it run for a few minutes. If you start to see smoke pull the plug right away!!!!! If you dont let the water boil(about 2 to 3 minutes thyen unplug and carefully fell around for a HOT part, But dont touch any electrical connections! If theres something drawing to much current it will get hot. Ive had bad capacitors bad and causes the transformer to get too hot. as well as bad magnatrons cause the transformer to get to hot. I would recomend that you take this unit in to be diagnoised as there are alot of voltage in this oven as I ststed before and it is dangerous for a handyperson to be fiddling with it. Good Luck
