Question about Microwave Ovens

3 Answers

I have a Cookworks Microwave Oven Model EM717CKL. I have noticed that while it is in use, quite a strong draught is coming from the hinge side of the door. I have searched to find out if this is normal but can find no reference to it. I would be very grateful if you could tell me, Thanks, Melvyn Bedford.

This is not normal, the microwave door must be completely sealed when running, because it keeps radiation from leaking, If you are getting a draught coming out, it is a safety hazard issue and most be checked out with a microwave leakage detector. My advice is not use it until it has been certified safe to use.

It depends on the amount of leak as a higher amount is not acceptable as there can be radiation leak. Please check the hinges and the door seals as there must be minimum gap to the chamber and door.
A small amount of the food flavors can be smelled while the microwave heats as this is normal. The door protect from any microwave leaking to the front and should not be a concern unless you are able to measure any stray radiation.

The Turn Table motor will need to be replaced, this appears to be a common problem in the microwave ovens. I recommend a suitable technician because there are dangerous high voltage present.
