    Microwave exploded. Am I alone?

    This is the second microwave in 6 weeks to ‘explode’ (the side light inside ignited straight away after starting the power), both microwaves were the same make & model. I put nothing metal inside. Has anyone else had an issue? I can’t imagine it being the soap but I’m unsure.

    Aggravated with M&P goat's milk
