It is usually the inside which is poorly maintained by the user, with accumulated spattered food, and accumulated moisture causing a rusting out of the metal on the door or walls, or the vent leading outside the oven. The electronics controller should be good for 1000 to 5000 hours.
Typically you can even run a microwave for 2-3 minutes, sometimes longer while empty (no load) and it will be fine. This is what happens when you run it without a load. At first, everything is fine because the cavity, the door, the tray (or shelf) absorb the excess energy.
Theoretically a microwave can operate continuously but reality seems to show otherwise. Mine, once on for over 20 minutes will occasionally over heat and shut down for a while. You need to make sure of good ventilation all round the unit but especially where the external vents are.
You should replace your microwave every ten years. That is the average life expectancy that a manufacturer expects out of a microwave. Some variants can cause your microwave not to last that long. You can expect the whole ten years of use out of your microwave by taking care of it properly and not overusing it.
in less than 2 minutes = very high wattage oven (1000 watts or more). in 2½ minutes = high wattage oven (800 watts or more). in 3 minutes = average wattage oven (650 - 700 watts or more). in 3 - 4 minutes = slow oven (300 to 500 watts).
Yes, you can stand a safe distance in front of the microwave. Microwave ovens are designed to keep in radiation. However, while there should be almost no radiation escaping from the chamber, it's best not to press your nose up against the door the entire time your food is heating up.
If you take good care of your microwave up into its old age, there's a low risk of harm, but if it's damaged in any way you may want to get it checked out. If you've looked after it well, there's no reason why a vintage microwave should be dangerous.
Minute, a unit of measurement of time = 60 seconds. To my knowledge there are no different minutes, even in microwave ovens.
The microwave signals bounce off objects and return real-time images to a screen and can even penetrate concrete walls, though with limited ability. “Eight inches is all we've been able to do,” Charvat told CNN. Visibility “may be able to be increased by more transit power or lowering the frequency.

On average, microwaves penetrate about 1/2". Food thicker than an inch will have to either be stirred, or slowly cooked on low power, to allow time for heat from the outer 1/2" to conduct to the center.
Glass, paper, ceramic, or plastic containers are used in microwave cooking because microwaves pass through these materials. Although such containers cannot be heated by microwaves, they can become hot from the heat of the food cooking inside.
When a Zombie Pigman is hit (or one within 32 blocks is hit), it starts an anger timer. This timer lasts between 20 and 40 seconds.
He was in a coma for five years before he passed away, during that time, Aretha and her family gave him 24-hour nursing care.
He was tortured for 10 days, enough time for his hair to turn white. This misconception probably arose because in the anime(for those who only watched the anime) it turned white in a few seconds.
