Question about Microwave Ovens
The microwave is an 800 watt. It is 18 months old and takes much longer to heat food than previously - it goes through the motions of heating, but instead of taking 3 mins to heat one bowl of soup, it now takes up to 6 - can it be on the way out already ?
The microwaves are produced by what is known as a KLYSTRON TUBE. Like anything, early failure is possible. There is also the possibility that the transformer or electronic circuit providing the correct voltage to the KLYSTRON has failed, either from over-use, manufacturing defect, or leakage from the KLYSTRON enclosure, which creates heat.
With microwaves being as CHEAP as they are, replacement should not be an issue.
