    Would There Be A Safety Issue If I Had My Microwave Oven Set On Top Of My Clothes Dryer? I Recently Moved Into A Much Smaller Place And Need The Space.

    Thanks,

    Mum

    I don't see how that could cause a problem unless you ran the dryer and the micro at the same time. Blown fuse is about al I can think of.
    Maybe the dryer could shake the micro off and it could land on your foot!
    I say go for it!

    No, there shouldn't be any problems that I can see. Just make sure your dryer doesn't wobble around too much - and that you have a good plug in - I'm not sure what the rules are concerning a microwave running on an extension cord.

    good luck

    The Dryer Is On 220. And The Microwave Could Easily Reach The Nearest 110 Plug- In Outlet On Its Own Cord. The Space Is The Short End Of An "L" Shaped Kitchen. It Contains, Washer, Hot Water Heater And Dryer. I Will Test The Dryer For Wobble By Placing A Hammer On It Next Time I Use It.

    Thanks For Replies.

    There is the danger of making a mixup and drying last nights pizza and microwaving your underwear... but other than that I think you're good.

    Hey, this ain't no joke. New driers are actually coming out using microwaves for drying. Supposed to be more efficient...
