2 years ago a friend bought a microwave oven. He used to work maintaining things like scanners at a specialist hospital. He has a radiation meter, so he tested the radiation, which set off the alarm on the meter. He contacted the suppliers, who repaired it. The repaired oven still set off alarms. They replaced it. The replacement set off alarms.. He contacted trading standards, who referred the case to Yorkshire where the supplier was based. I assume his money was refunded. He heard no more.
He replaced the oven with one of a different make. It was fine until it died a week or so ago. He liked the timer on the radiating oven because it could be set accurately enough to heat his mince pies, and saw it was still available. Thinking they must have solved the problem after two years, he bought one again. He measured the replacement. The alarm on his meter goes off all around it at 5mv/sq metre, and full scale is 10mv/sq.m. It goes beyond full scale when held 2" from the oven.
He rang the suppliers, who just said that all their equipment was built to full European standards. They couldn't tell him what those standards were. He was then referred round in a circle and ended back with the supplier.
They referred him to the actual makers of the rebadged oven, Samsung. They have referred him to another organisation in Kendal. He has repeatedly rung them and spoken briefly, but been repeatedly cut off. They blamed their new phone system and he has latterly been unable to get through at all.
I've certainly never measured the radiation from our oven. Perhaps that explains her funny moods? (That's a joke in case my wife ever reads this).
