capucine, I follow your thinking and would tend to agree. Ironically both of our issues were started by potatoes!
However my MW quit working altogether and it wasn't until about 5 or so minutes had elapsed (MW cool down time?) that it would come back to life. It did it twice then for safety reasons we didn't attempt to use it again. When I tried to replicate the issue here at home (MW out of the trailer connected to house ac outlet) it worked flawlessly. We put it back in the trailer just this weekend and tried it again. It also worked flawlessly, thus my reasoning that it did what it did due to low voltage at the CG we were at.
If what we are experiencing are undocumented "features", I can tell you: I don't like undocumented features in microwaves!!
