IF your microwave has been flickering lately, you should hope it’s not for the same shocking reason that a Reddit user discovered.
One Redditor posted a crawling video about the flickering microwave that makes you want to clean up your kitchen.
It was captioned: “Tried to use a friend’s spot microwave and saw the numbers flicker so take a closer look…..”
At first, the microwave looked very greasy.
However, when the video zoomed in on the microwave’s digital timer, it showed dozens of tiny insects crawling inside the microwave and past the timer.
This causes the timer’s light to blink like it’s on and off.
There is some speculation that insects are cockroaches.
One of the insects can even be seen running outside the greasy equipment.
The Reddit post had around 2,500 comments, and some people even claimed the same thing happened to them.
One Reddit user wrote: “This happened in the ***** college apartment I lived in last year. There were cockroaches inside the oven and microwave timers.
“One night I went to the kitchen to get a glass of water, and after waking up, it was dry, turned on the light, and saw cockroaches all over the four walls in the kitchen, on every drawer, on the sink, refrigerator, stove, everywhere.
“Probably a hundred or so. After three visits from the exterminators, they’re still there every night. Get out as soon as I can.”
Another Reddit user joked: “I’ll burn it all to the ground tbh.”
