Leakage of microwave radiation past the door seal in a microwave oven.
In general, a microwave leak detector is an electronic device used on microwave ovens to check for leaks around the door seal. The device "looks for" microwave energy that might be getting past the seals. There are a number of different types ranging from "cheapie" meters to "survey units" that cost hundreds of dollars and should be calibrated yearly.
Yes. They are also called Microwave Oven Leakage Meters. I have seen some for sale for $10 or so. This meter is a small device you place next to your microwave's door and move it around the edge of the door to check for leaks. Note that these units are not like the ones used in shops by technicians. These "survey meters" cost hundreds of dollars and should be calibrated annually. If you suspect the door on your oven (which is the most likely place it will leak) is damaged, make a call to a shop and ask about a leak check. How much is it? Do I have to bring the unit in? Stuff like that.
It checks that no microwaves have escaped from the oven. Microwaves are harmful to living flesh. Not only will it cook you, as it does in the oven, but even small doses can cause eye cataracts. The door seal has a mesh, that will trap the microwave radiation. The mechanical size of the mesh is designed to interfere with the radio wave length. The door seals can get damaged with use and as radio waves are invisible, no one would know there is a problem. By moving a microwave leak detector around the door seal and cabinet, you can check to see that the oven is safe. The device can also be used for radar systems, that use wave guides up to the scanner, to check joints.
Most Corningware products can be used in the microwave, but here are some ways to find out if your type of dishware can be used in a microwave. 1. Corningingware will have information on the bottom of their stoneware that will tell you if it is microwave safe, etc. 2. Corningware says that it is not OK, to cook pop corn in a Corningware dish. 3. Always check the Corningware website for specific guidelines and more details. You can check it out at corningware.com.
Yes, microwaves can leak out of a microwave oven. The microwaves are directed into the cavity (the cooking space) of the oven, but they can leak around the seal provided by the door. The door seal is the most probable and common place for leaks to appear. (Most of the rest of the cavity construction does not lend itself to "breakdown" and microwave leakage.) It's not a good idea to slam the door of a microwave oven shut. Shut it gently. And never lean on the door, not when it's shut, and never when it's open. You and the other users of the appliance have control over how it is treated. If you have doubts about the integrity of the door of your oven, call a repair center in your area. Ask about checking for leaks, and they'll give you the scoop. It is cheaper to take a unit in for a leakage check than to have someone come out. Additionally, the meter used by the professional to do this costs a ton of money and has to be calibrated at least annually. (That's why there's a fee associated with the check.) If you (and others) use your oven per the manufacturer's instructions and take care of it, leaking microwaves should not be an issue. But anything that damages the door may affect its seal, and a check is in order.
