In principle no it is not hazardous. In practice however, unless the machine is clean to the point of sterile, small items in the microwave can absorb more energy than they would if a large item was in the machine also. This can produce some damage to the machine. manufacturers generally recommend not running microwaves empty. Why would you want to? If in doubt, just a cup of water would be more than adequate. it is not a good idea to modify a microwave oven in any way. Hope this helps :)

On model mw8626w can i use it in my semi with a 1000 watt inverter?


Take a look at the oven's electric rating information. It should be on the label with the model and serial number, and it will tell you how many amps the oven needs. Power in watts is volts times amps, so a 1000-watt inverter is good for about 8 amps at 120 volts output. Some inverters also use a peak rating, meaning power than can be delivered for a short time. The continuous power may be less than that; you'll need to look at the inverter. As long as the power needed by the oven is within the inverter's ratings then you'll be able to use it. Otherwise you'll need to shop for one with more output power.

Cooked food smells funny,could it be a leak?


Unless you can associate the odor with burning electronics, it probably isn't being caused by the microwave.

Door got slammed and now it does nothing


There are two or three switches operated by the door latches in a microwave oven. When the door is slammed, they can be damaged or knocked out of adjustment. If the control board thinks the door is open, it won't allow the oven to operate. It's best to let a professional check the oven and adjust or replace the affected parts. Microwaves are hazardous devices, with lethal voltages exposed when the cover is off. Also, repairs involving door repairs can cause microwave leakage if they aren't done properly. But once the switches are operating properly your oven should be fine.

Can't use the microwave at all


you have either a bad keypad or control board.

If you have operation of some buttons and not others its the keypad. if you have no operation out of the buttons at all you have a bad control board.

If you turn your microwave on and it sets and the timer counts down you have a bad interlock switch..

please let me know exactly what your microwave does when you set the cook time
