Although almost everyone owns a microwave, few people are entirely aware of how it operates. In principle, a microwave oven cooks food by emitting incredibly intense electromagnetic waves. Of course, if these waves are leaking from your microwave, you run the risk of being severely burned.
If your microwave is broken, particularly around the door area, there is a potential that these energy waves will leak out, which is why you should check for leakage around your microwave.
While having your microwave leak checked may not be something most people think about on a regular basis, it is a crucial element of ensuring that your microwave remains in good operating order. To test your microwave, you'll need to find a leakage checker that can measure the amount of energy waves that are likely to be emitted by it.
The first thing you'll need to do is check that your leak detector is operating properly, and all you'll need is a cell phone to do so. Make a call with the checkmark next to the cell phone. You should notice that the digital screen indicates that your phone is emitting some electromagnetic energy.
Once you've confirmed that it's working, move the checker about the microwave in different areas and microwave a large bowl of water for around one minute. You can move the checker about while the microwave heats up the water to determine if there are any leaks in particular areas. When the microwave has finished heating the water, open the door and insert the checker to examine if the emitter has totally switched off.
While not everyone may think to test your microwave or know how to do so, there is a strong possibility that if you buy a used one from an appliance store, it has already been tested. Anyone selling a used microwave should have it thoroughly examined before putting it on the market. Actually, rather than spending the money on a leakage checker that you may only use once or twice in your life, you may always take it to a testing and tagging service. Appliance repair shops and An Electrical testing company can also help you with your leak problems.
