Question and Answers

Q:

Is it safe to operate a microwave without the plastic roof liner in place?

A:

It is best to not operate the oven without the cover in place. It won't do any damage to anything to use it, but the grease will buildup in the waveguide and eventually short out the magnetron. There could be a fire danger when the grease ignites.

It is impossible to use the microwave normally without the grease building up. Most all foods give off some grease while heating up and the fan takes it into the waveguide and the magnetron.
