A week ago I started smelling something burning when I use the microwave.
Then my wife pointed out that sparks are coming out of the outlet.
I opened the outlet out and filmed it. (See the following. "wmv" movie is a bit shorter. https://picasaweb.google.com/Keep.Earth.Clean/Sparks?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCNuVvfjalNSFugE&fe at=directlink
My questions are as follows:
- Why all of a sudden this started happening?
- Do microwaves start consuming more power as they get older? Could this be the reason for the sparks?
- Would changing the outlet solve the problem?
