General Electric microwave started it self in front of three witnesses tonight while we were talking in our kitchen. Kind of a freaky thing. It hadnt been used in hours. I unplugged it and being a reliability engineer thought someone should be interested in this near disaster. I'm not making a claim and will be happy to ship it for failure analysis. It would be a good candidate for root cause work to prevent a future fire someplace. Regards, [REDACTED] Quality and Reliability Engineer.
