Yeh it's funny if one manages to live through it.LOL
I worked for Panasonic in the 70's.
One technician zapped himself with a microwave. He was laid out on the floor when we found him. Now I own a Panasonic combo micrwave/convection oven. But no reliability data though.
Those caps. can and do kill.
Don't know what part you played within Panasonic but if it was in the engineering dept. you know where to find that 'book' of reliability data for each individual component of the oven all the way to the gauge of the wire to each component and how that gauge and the connections/connecters effects the life cycle of every down stream device it feeds.
How one could condense that 'book' into a single graph of any kind that would be meaningful for the general public consumer is well beyond me. After all they throw away perfectly good units for the most minor of reasons.
