I was going to eat a little Tesco frozen spotted dick (no sniggering at the back there) pudding just now. That involves zapping it in the microwave for a minute (having removed the typically difficult to get off film lid). So I shoved it in, and pressed the start button with a cry of “zap”…and indeed it did. A large spark and bang emanated from the rear somewhere. The microwave continued working (!), or at least spinning around with it’s light on. Further investigation showed it seems to know longer actually heat anything up, and the timer has a mind of its own. Oops
