      Is the microwave empty?


Detailed Answer

      The microwave should NEVER be operated empty. This is because there must be something inside the unit

      to absorb the microwaves or the cavity will be burned/scorched. Place a cup of water in the microwave and

      “cook” for 30 seconds. If no sparking occurs, then it is okay to continue to use the microwave.
