Question about Hotpoint RVM1435 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Inside Microwave is Hot

Is it OK if the inside of a microwave is hot after use/when not in use? I placed a cup of coffee inside a microwave at school and noticed that it felt warm against my hand inside the microwave as I was placing the cup down. Not burning hot, but warm. I microwaved the cup for 30 seconds. When taking the cup out of the microwave, it still felt hot inside against my hand removing the cup. I don't think it is supposed to be warm inside. I don't think I've ever experienced this before. Is this a serious problem? Should I not use this microwave in the future?

Below is the solution on how to make our microwave heat food.

1 Remove oven racks and place them in soapy water to soak.

    Heating the cup more than coffee

    make sure the stirrer motor located under the outer cover that distributes the microwaves is turning otherwise you will get hot and cold spots in the oven cavity

    Whirlpool MH2175XS microwave/hood combo with oil leak, etc.

    This is a very wierd problem that we have been dealing with for years, and never seem to get a correct answer. Have actually seen green slime like oil inside the units before. From what we have heard, is that this oily substance is actually coming out of the blower fan assembly inside the unit. Its like bearing oil from the center support shaft. Will go away over time, but the fan may or may not go bad. Good luck with the mystery oil.

    I have a Kenmore Brew Wave that has cracked in the plastic unit that you put the water in to make coffee. Where can I find a replacement. Had a job getting a new carafe when it cracked.

    Sears do not make the carafe anymore but this is something that I do that may help?
    I took the top off the carafe an just placed it to the top of my coffee cup and sat the top part the holds the coffee on top of it and just poured the hot water from a cup I heated in the microwave. Do it very slowly until you get the it right for you, it works for and I hope it will do the same for you guys ?

    It is your cup. The handle density or moisture content of the handle is causing the mwave to heat it. The rest of the cup contains a liquid (coffee?) that is absorbing any heat generated in the body of the cup. Use a different cup!
