My microwave is sparking at the high volt capacitor (AP 2026136). Will replacement of this fix my problem?
Answer Hi Kenny. If your wire connectors at the capacitor were damaged they need replaced. Then it all depends on what made the capacitor blow in the high voltage circuit. The Magnetron will open or short out, this part # WB27X10305. The Capacitor is part # WB27X10233. The diode is next in the high voltage circuit part # WB27X10037. All of these parts need replaced at one time, being as they are on the high voltage circuit. Thank you.
How do I test old capcitator?
Answer Hello. You will need a meter with the capacitor testing feature. If the microwave has quit heating, it's most likely the magnetron, diode, or H.V. transformer. Hope this helps.
