I can understand how frustrating it is to have issues with your microwave.  When you run a unit like this empty, it cause a problem for the magnetron. This is because there is nothing in the unit to absorb the microwaves that are generated.  When microwave has no place to go, the radiation in the unit, get absorb into it. The only way to fix this is to replace the magnetron. However, microwaves contain high-voltage components that can retain a lethal electrical charge of up to 2200 VAC -- even when the microwave is unplugged. Repairs and adjustments, even minor ones such as , can cause microwave leakage. A microwave shielding leakage test should be performed after any microwave service. It is for these safety reasons that we are unable to guide you in microwave repairs and instead recommend scheduling service with a qualified service technician. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
