Customer Question

The outside of my microwave oven gets very hot after only 3 minutes on high. The oven is 4 years old.

This points to the cooling fan motor on the inside of the microwave. A microwave can hold lethal voltage even unplugged. A qualified technician should make this repair.

If you feel you are qualified and have high voltage electrical experience post back with the model number and I will assist you.
