    I bought a microwave of a brand called NATIONAL, 2 years ago.
    This afternoon, I discovered something that really freaks me out. There is a security mechanism that does not work anymore: when I open the door of the microwave before the end of the cooking / unfreezing, it does not stop but still emit microwaves.

    Imagine worst case scenario, someone putting his/her hand inside when the microwaves are emitting. What could be the damages ?

    No safety device is foolproof. It's wise to shut the oven off before opening the door.
    Get rid of the defective oven.
    I don't think you would cook your hand in a few seconds, but I think there is some danger to the eyes.
