Hi, Thank you for using justanswer for your appliance questions!

Microwaves last between 12-14 yrs. With normal use microwave ovens don't leak. If the cover has been removed or the door worked on , the unit needs to be checked for leakage.

Hope this helps!

Let me know if you need more assistance or if you have any questions.
Thank you for using
