I have a K-Aid combination oven/microwave Mod. YKEMC308KMO

Resolved Question:

I have a K-Aid combination oven/microwave Mod. YKEMC308KMO and found this morning that the exterior front and interiors walls of the microwave were very hot without using it.
I shut-off the braker and it became cold after ½ an hour.
Can I try to run it without danger?

ok, well this is probably either a contact is stuck on in the microwave board or you have a short, I would not recommend trying to use this until you have it checked by a technician. microwaves are dangerous to work on so a tech is recommended. due to a fire hazard leave this unplugged. thanks Bryan
