    I was talking about the brown hard rubber like material on the inside of the
    door which I think use to be in all microwaves, certainly all the ones I
    ever seen.

    How new is your microwave, I know sanyo still had them about 4 years ago but
    maybe no microwave ovens have them anymore for some reason.

    5 years old or so, maybe a little more. I also just checked the one in
    my motorhome (2 year old Sanyo) and it's seal-less too.

    Oh well, obviously I have nothing to worry about, thanks.

    Mine is brand new - maybe built 2 years ago. All such a seal would stop is
    moisture escaping.

  6. Rubber isn't going to stop microwaves, is it?
     
  7. Tell that to your water pipes, your chimney, tubular car chassis
    members, and all kinds of other hollow building components where
    strength and lightness are both required.

    If you are a little aprehensive you can buy a checker.

    perhaps you have noticed that you microwave oven door contains shock
    horror glass through which microwaves can pass

    provided the gap between the door and chassis is small it will be safe

    the only thing they are good for is keeping steam from escaping
     
  11. Seems like cooking it the old fashined way over a stove would be quicker. <g>

    The microwave seal on a "Microwave" is there, you just can't see it. A
    gap with a length
    of 1 /4 wave is a short for microwave. The length can be different if
    loaded with a dielectric.

  13. Please explain to us the difference between ordinary glass and shock
    horror glass?

    The OP was asking about a rubber seal and if it stopped microwaves.

    Actually a microwave does an excellent job. The sensor ones do it
    automatically.

    Wouldn't a rubber seal exacerbate leakage issues? I mean, wouldn't it
    effectively *create* a gap through which microwaves could leak?

    Like the difference between John McCain and George Bush?

    It's mildly annoying unless it is done for a purpose but nowhere near as
    annoying as SHOUTING.
