Question about Kenmore 62702 Microwave Oven
It could be a problem with your cooling fan or hood fan not venting the cavity enough.
To help you most effectively, it's better to post your full actual model number. But I'll give you the general info for now.
If this is a countertop model, you should feel strong air flow coming out from the back.
If it's an over the range model, you should hear the internal fan blowing when you hit Start and see the steam moving around while it's heating.
If the fan is not blowing and air is not blowing or if the next system is not working or blocked, you will get more steam than usual and the magnetron will likely end up being damaged.
Some steam buildup inside is normal, but not too much. It's kind of subjective, but it's dependent to a lagre degree on that air flow.
Most newer models don't have any gaskets to worry about, but older models may have deteriorated gaskets which limit the air flow.
