Leakage? Yes, I did say radiation leakage, because any microwave can
start leaking radiation any time, for whatever reasons. And such a
leakage is hazardous to humans and pets in the house. You don't need
to call in experts or to send your microwave to the dealer's workshop
for a leakage test. That's time consuming, inconvenient and costly.Here's how you can test your microwave for radiation leakage, right in
your own house, at no cost. Just follow these simple steps.....1. Switch-off and unplug the microwave from the electrical socket.2. Place your mobile phone inside the microwave and shut the door.3. Using another mobile phone, dial the phone that's inside the microwave.4. If the outside phone says "the number you are dialing is not reachable, or is out of coverage area, or is switched off; then your microwave is safe.5. But if the phone inside the microwave
lights up and rings, your microwave is leaking radiation. Just throw away the damn thing and get a new one. (Believe me, the medical
treatment of the side-effects of radiation leaks is costlier than the price of maybe 10 new microwaves.)Remember, just because the door of
your microwave appears to shut properly does not conclusively mean
that it is not leaking radiation. Stay safe, and test your microwave regularly at frequent intervals; the frequency of testing depending on the extent of usage, and you are the best judge of that
