The easy way to clean your microwave.

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

Even if you cover your food up when you cook it in the microwave things still splatter.

I have seen some really dirty microwaves over the years.

Some I have seen are so bad that I have to wonder how anyone could put there food in it and then take it out to eat it.

Fortunately microwaves are easy to clean if you know how.

First fill a microwave safe glass bowl half full of water and add a tablespoon of white vinegar.

Then place the bowl inside the microwave and turn it on for 5 minutes.

This will steam up the walls of the microwave and loosen up the dried on food.

When the five minutes is done, remove the glass bowl and wipe down the inside of the microwave with a clean paper towel.

How easy was that?

Procedure to test the microwave high voltage diode to see if it is shorted.

1. Select the Ω scale on the meter.

2. Place the meter leads across the diode. The reading should be “40MΩ,” “OL,” or a reading of infinity.

Personnel should not be exposed to the microwave energy which may radiate from the magnetron or other microwave generating device if it is improperly used or connection.

All input and output microwave connections, waveguide, flange and gasket must be secure never operate the device without a microwave energy absorbing load attached.
