Microwave oven leakage can have devastating effects on your health. The FDA limits the amount of microwaves that can leak from an oven throughout its lifetime to 5 milliwatts (mW) of microwave radiation per square centimeter at approximately 2 inches from the oven surface. Exposure to high levels of microwaves can cause the following injuries:

  • Painful burns
  • Eye damage
  • Skin cancer
  • Temporary sterility
  • Cardiovascular problems
  • Central nervous system damage

This Microwave Oven Leakage Detector Test Kit offers a safe and convenient method to measure leakage levels around the oven. The kit contains 1 microwave leakage detector. 

WHAT IS MICROWAVE RADIATION?
Microwave radiation is the energy that causes the water molecules in food to vibrate rapidly. It is this rapid vibration that produces heat which, in turn, cooks the food.

However, it can also penetrate through living tissue which is why exposure to microwave radiation is harmful to your health. Microwave radiation is difficult to detect because it is both invisible and odorless. When a microwave oven is turned on, microwave radiation is present.

Microwave radiation disappears once you turn the oven off, but until then, you may be exposing yourself and your family to dangerous levels of radiation.

WHAT CAUSES MICROWAVE OVENS TO LEAK?
Slamming the oven door, dirt or food particles caught in the door seals and hinges, or basic wear and tear all cause the oven door to slightly separate from the oven enclosure.

Once this happens, invisible, but highly dangerous microwave radiation leaks through the small space and this can cause irreversible damage and injury to you and your family.

FACT: An independent survey conducted among the Professional Service Associates, a group of microwave repair servicemen, indicated that over 56% of microwave ovens two years or older leaked levels of radiation 10% higher than the safety standards set by the FDA.

More often than not, a simple adjustment was all that was needed to stop the leakage.

WHAT CAN MICROWAVE RADIATION DO TO YOU?
The FDA has established microwave radiation exposure levels greater than 5mW/cm2 to be dangerous. Independent studies have revealed levels much lower can cause:

  • Cataracts
  • Skin cancer
  • Dizziness and headaches
  • Blood disorders
  • Increased stress
  • Birth defects in pregnant women
  • Central nervous system damage
  • Temporary sterility in men
  • Cardiovascular problems
  • Interference with some pacemakers

 

  1. Microwave oven leakage detector Instructions: 1. Place a cup of cold water in the Microwave Oven. 2. Set Microwave ON HIGH to 1 minute and push start.While holding the card on the thumb mark (DO NOT TOUCH SENSOR WHILE IN USE) and with the front of card facing you, slowly skim sensing element over and around door seals and glass of oven (see red arrows on front of card) one time during entire 1 minute period. Results: If just the smile face is visible, no radiation leakage is present. If a sad face appears while smile face is visible, oven is leaking minor radiation. If the skull and cross bones appear while the smile face is visible, it could be extremely dangerous. Do not use the oven and contact a qualified kitchen appliance technician.

NOTE: DO NOT PUT THE MICROWAVE OVEN LEAKAGE DETECTOR INSIDE MICROWAVE OVEN, IT WILL MELT!

VERY IMPORTANT! SMILE FACE SHOULD BE "GREEN" OR "RED" WHEN USING. IF SMILE FACE TURNS "BLUE" OR DISAPPEARS, CARD IS TOO HOT. LET IT COOL AND RETEST.
