Microwave Waveguide Cover

This page covers microwave waveguide cover and related links on waveguide basic tutorial and waveguide component manufacturers.

The cover made of mica sheets usually employed inside microwave oven to stop food and moistures falling into the open waveguide cavity. After sometime this cover which usually is rigid and hard becomes soft and hence holes will emerge. This leads to sparking during use and moistures/food particles enters into the cavity. Hence microwave oven does not function properly as expected.

When one see above symptoms it is advisable to replace microwave waveguide cover. Usually dealer/manufacturer takes care of replacing the same.
