Microwave Started by Itself

Two weekends ago, I went to use my Microwave and the display was stuck on
”0”. None of the buttons worked. I could not wake it up. Instead, I heated water on the stove for tea and went about my business. This past weekend I was on the boat working on something and I heard a beep. Didn’t know what it was. Then I heard another beep and looked at the microwave. The display was back on “0.” I opened the door and she was HOT. It started and ran by itself! I suspect there must be some corrosion on the control board causing a short circuit. The unit is 10 years old after all. I have a week-long trip next week so I don’t have the time to get it repaired or to modify the mounts to fit a replacement unit. If I try to fix it, what can I used to clean the electrical or electronic parts without damaging it? Baking soda and distilled water? Battery terminal cleaner and protector, Corrosion X, WD40? Any ideas?

Re: Microwave Started by Itself

Seriously......I would toss it and buy another one! They are so cheap that dealing with one that appears to have gone amuck and the safety issues involved ( read FIRE) would not be my first option. Just sayin....

Looking at this chart, I do not think I could rule it out.

It's better than my Poltergeist theory.

RITUS EXORCIZANDI
OBSESSOS A DÆMONIO
(Rite Of Exorcism)


<B>
SACERDOS ab Ordinario delegatus, rite confessus, aut saltem corde peccata sua detestans, peracto, si commode fieri possit, Sanctissimo Missæ sacrificio, divinoque auxilio piis precibus implorato, superpelliceo et stola violacea indutus, et coram se habens obsessum ligatum, si sit periculum, eum, se et astantes communiat signo crucis, et aspergat aqua benedicta, et genibus flexis, aliis respondentibus, dicat Litanias ordinarias usque ad Preces exclusive. Postem dicat:
Ant. Ne reminiscáris, Dómini, delicta nostra, vel paréntum nostrórum: neque vindíctam sumas de peccátis nostris.
Pater noster secreto usque ad
V. Et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem.
VI. Sed líbera nos a malo.
Psalmus 53

Deus, in nómine tuo salvum me fac,
et virtúte tua age causam meam.
Deus, audi oratiónem meam;
áuribus pércipe verba oris mei.
Nam supérbi insurréxunt contra me, et violénti quasiérunt vitam meam;
non proposuérunt Deum ante óculos suos.
Ecce, Deus ádjuvat me,
óminus susténtat vitam meam.
Retórque malum in adversários meos,
et pro fidelitáte tua déstrue ilos.
Voluntárie sacrificábo tibi,
celebrábo nomen tuum, Dómine, quia bonum est.
Nam ex omni tribulatióne eripuit me,
et inimícos meos confúsos vidit óculos meus.
Glória Patri.
V. Salvum (-am) fac servum tuum (ancillam tuam).
R. Deus meus, sperántem in te.
V. Esto ei, Dómini, turris fortitúdinis.
R. A fácie inimíci.
V. Nihil proficiat inimicus in eo (ea).
R. Et fílius iniquitátis non appónat nocére ei.
V. Mitte ei, Dómine, auxilium de sancto.
R. Et de Sion tuére eum (ea)
V. Dómine, exaudi oratiónem meam.
R. Et clamor meus ad te véniat.
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spírito tuo.
Orémus Oratio
DEUS, cui próprium est miseréri semper et párcere: súscipe deprecatiónem nostram; ut hunc fámulum tuum, quem (hanc fámulam tuam, quam) delictórum caténa constríngit, miserátio tuæ pietátis cleménter absólvat.
DÓMINE sancte, Pater omnípotens, ætérne Deus, Pater Dómini nostri Jesu Christi, qui illum réfugam tyránnum et apóstatam gehénnae ígnibus deputásti, quique Unigénitum tuum in hunc mundum misísti, ut illum rugiéntem contéret: velóciter atténdem accélera, ut erípias hóminem ad imáginem et similitúdinem tuam creátum, a ruína et dæmónio meridiáno. Da, Dómine, terrórem tuum super béstiam, quæ extérminat vineam tuam. Da fidúciam servis tuis contra nequíssimum dracónem pugnáre fortíssime, ne contémnat sperántes in te, et ne dicat, sicut in Pharaóne, qui jam dixit: Deum non novi, nec Israël dimítto. Urgeat illum déxtera tua potens discédere a fámulo tuo N. (a fámula tua N.) +, ne diútius præsúmat captívum tenére, quem tu ad imáginem tuam fácere dignátus es, et in Fílio tuo redemísti: Qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti Deus, per ómnia sæcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Deinde praecipiat daemoni hunc in modum:
PRAECÍPIO tibi, quicúmque es, spíritus immúnde, et ómnibus sóciis tuis hunc dei fámulum (hanc dei fámulam) obsidéntibus: ut per mystéria incarnatiónis, passiónis, resurrectiónis et ascensiónis Dómini nostri Jesu Christi, per missiónem Spíritus Sancti, et per advéntum ejúsdem Dómini nostri ad judicium, dicas mihi nomen tuum, die et horam éxitus tui, cum áliquo signo: et ut mihi Dei minístro licet indígno, prorsus in ómnibus obédias: neque hanc creatúram Dei, vel circunstántes, aut eórum bona ullo modo offéndas.
Deinde legantur super obsessum haec Evangelis, vel saltem unum.
Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Joánnem.

Hæc dicens, signat se et obsessum in fronte, ore et pectore.
In princípio erat Verbum, etc ut supra.
Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Marcum
(Mark 16:15-18)
IN ILLO témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: Eúntes in mundum univérsum, prædicáte Evangélium omni creatúræ. Qui credíderit, et baptizátus fuérit, salvus erit: qui vero non credíderit, condemnábitur. Signa autem eos, qui credíderint, hæc sequéntur: In nómine meo dæmónia ejícient: linguis loquéntur novis: serpéntes tollent: et si mortíferum quid bíberint, non eius nocébit: super aegros manus impónent, et bene habébunt.
Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Lucam
(Luke 10:17-20)
IN ILLO témpore: Revérsi sunt septuagínta duo cum gáudio, dícentes at Jesum: Dómine, étiam dæmónia subjiciúntur nóbis in nómine tuo. Et ait illis: Vidébant sátanam sicut fulgur de cælo cadéntem. Ecci dedi vobis potestátem calcándi supra serpéntes, et scorpiónes, et super omnem virtútem inimíci: et nihil vobis nocébit. Verumtamen in hoc nolíte gaudére, quia spíritus vobis subjiciúntur: gaudéte autem, quod nómina vestra scripta sunt in cælis.
Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Lucam
(Luke 11:14-22) IN ILLO témpore: Erat Jesus ejíciens daemónium, et illud erat mutum. Et cum ejecísset daemónium, locútus est mutus, et admirátæ sunt turbæ. Quidam autem ex eis dixérunt: In Beélzebub príncipe dæmóniorum éjicit dæmónia. Et álii tentántes, signum de cælo quærébant ab eo. Ipse autem ut vidit cogitatiónes eórum, dixit eis: Omne regnum in seípsum divísum desolábitur, et domu supra domum cadet. Si autem et sátanas in seípsum divísus est, quómodo stabit regnum eius? Quia dícitis, in Beélzebub ejício dæmónia. Si autem ego in Beélzebub ejício dæmónia, filii vestri in quo ejíciunt? Ideo ipsi júdices vestri erunt. Porro si in dígito Dei ejício dæmónia: profécto pervénit in vos regnum dei. Cum fortis armátus custódit átrium suum, in pace sunt ea, quæ póssidet. Si autem fórtior eo supervéniens vícerit eum, univérsa arma ejus áuferet, in quibus confidébat, et spólia ejus distribuet.
V. Dómine, exaudi oratiónem meam.
R. Et clamor meus ad te véniat.
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spírito tuo.
Orémus Oratio
OMNÍPOTENS Dómine, Verbum dei Patris, Christe Jesu, Deus et Dóminus univérsæ creatúræ: qui sanctis Apóstolis tuis dedísti potestátem calcándi super serpéntes et scorpiónes: qui inter cétera mirabílium tuórum præcépta dignátus es dícere: Dæmones effugáte: cujus virtúte motus tamquam fulgur de cælo sátanas cécidit: tuum sanctum nomen cum timóre et tremóre supplíciter déprecor, ut indigníssimo mihi servo tuo, data vénia ómnium delictórum meórum, constantem fidem, et potestátem donáre dignéris, ut hunc crudélem dæmonem, brácchii tui sancti munítus poténtia, fidéliter et secúrus aggrédiar: per te, Jesu Christe, Dómine Deus noster, qui ventúrus es judicáre vivos et mórtuos, et sæculum per ignem.
Amen.
Deinde muniat se et obsessum signo crucis, imponat extremam partem stolæ collo ejus, et dextera manu sua capiti ejus imposita, constanter et magna cum fide dicat ea quae sequuntur:
V. Ecce Crucem Dómini, fúgite, partes advérsæ.
R. Vicit leo de tribu Juda, radix David.
V. Dómine, exaudi oratiónem meam.
R. Et clamor meus ad te véniat.
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spírito tuo.
Orémus Oratio Deus, et Pater Dómini nostri Jesu Christi, invoco nomen sanctum tuum, et cleméntiam tuam supplex expósco: ut advérsus hunc, et omnem immúndum spíritum, qui vexat hoc plasma tuum, mihi auxilium præstáre dignéris. Per eúmdem Dóminum.
Amen.
