Has anybody got any thoughts as to what is wrong with our Russel Hobbs Microwave in our 2019 Bourton ,it will work perfectly for 6 to 7 minutes then cuts out and the separate switch you turn the microwave on with also cuts off and the red light goes out,  10 minutes later its comes back on and works perfectly for a short time then cuts out again.We have spoken to a chap at Willersley but he didn't really seem to know, we have spoken to our dealer and are getting a new microwave under warranty but are not 100% sure it will cure the problem, any ideas ?

Our Daewoo does the same (and my Sussex is a 2010). The Daewoo problem was common, hadn't  heard of it on the Russell Hobbs. Ours ,I believe is due to overheating because it is mounted in an enclosed space with little air surrounding it and no vent to the outside. I'm not familiar with how it is fitted in a Bourton but the fault sounds the same.

Yes had exactly the same with my daewoo microwave....overheating.
I solved it by fitting two fans to take out the heat that Paul has suggested trips it out....the bourton I assume suffered the same issue.

I put a couple of small circular vent grills in around the microwave to allow more air but hasn't worked. I'd be interested in how you fitted your fans, where you took power from and any switch you put in.

Re outside vents: Our Broadway has an outside vent and an inside vent to the room. Whenever there is any wind we get the draught straight into the van round the edges of the microwave. Lack of ventilation there is not ! It looks like the same vent as in Libraryman's Corinium above.

Despite this excess of ventilation our Daewoo gave up about 3 years ago in Spain and we replaced it with a much more basic German OK brand one. The mechanics of the Daewoo worked perfectly -ie lights on and platform spinning-but no cooking so we think it was either the magnetron or the high voltage fuse, neither of which we could safely sort ourselves and no firm would look at it. 

Fingers crossed the OK one is still OK.
