Abstract A microwave oven comprises a body having a cooking chamber and an electrical component compartment isolated by a barrier wall and having a cooling fan installed in the electrical component compartment, and an air guide, associated with the air duct, having an inlet of air from the cooling fan and an outlet of air into the cooking chamber. A damper is provided on the inlet side of the air guide, so that the opening/ closing of the inlet can be performed under the control of a driver element. The microvave can reduce manufacturing cost while enhancing productivity and eliminating noise of apparatus and utilize the space efficiently by decreasing the number of parts.
