Microwave over problem

Hi,
I have an old microwave oven, which was given to me by my friend one
year ago. This microwave oven works and had several programming
functions, such as bake, broil, roast, grill etc, although I never use
these functions. The main problem is that when I heat some food, the
temperature is not evenly heated. Some part of food is hot while other
part is cooler. Because there is no mechnic rotating plate at the
center of the oven, I don't know whether this is a problem or not. I
have checked the website of http://www.repairfaq.org and find no clue
there. Could you tell me more about this?


Thanks in advance.

Hi

Some microwave ovens use a stirrer but no turntable, especially ones
over 20 years old. The stirrer is a rotating metal plate at the top of
the cooking cavity, and stirs the microwaves. These are always
inferior as regards evenness of heating, but should be adequate if you
turn the food round half way through cooking, and always check food is
defrosted before cooking, every time without fail.

Often the stirrer is blown by airflow, and stops rotating. Check its
working.

If the cooker has no turntable or stirrer is is surely unsafe. If it
is as old as 1970s, theres a fair chance it may be unsafe. This
applies to Britain where safety issues were addressed at that time: if
youre somewhere else, I dont know.

There is something else too: Parts of food containing more water are
heaten more than other with no water.

But I believe it is a very old model, so you can send it to trash :)
Or rotare by hand the dish with the food on it.
