How long does it take for a microwave capacitor to discharge?

If the internal resistance is 10 megohms, and the condenser is about 1 microfarada, the discharge time at a safety voltage will be of the order of more than 10 seconds. So let your microwave feel during the night for safety reasons and the hood must be completely dead.
