Do I need to turn my microwave off to clean it?

Always turn off an electronic appliance when cleaning.

Answered by Dave, Electrical Safety Expert

Don’t try to clean an appliance when it is still plugged in. It's important to clean your microwave thoroughly, a build up of fat and grease is a major cause of fires. Also make sure that the vents are clean and not covered - never use the top of the microwave for storage.
