Try shining a flashlight through the door and see if there is in fact a perforated sheet...

Microwave energy leakage meters are commercially available though they are less used these days as users have increased confidence.
When a new microwave is obtained it is a good idea to accurately time the boiling of a measured quantity of water as a performance benchmark and then repeat the experiment at intervals - any significant extension of the time taken signals it is time for maintenance because the lost energy could be due to leakage...
