Microwave sounds louder and no heating action.
What do I need?
Answer Hello Peter, You will need to replace the magnetron 6324W1A001M and diode on the unit. Unfortunately the magnetron has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer and we don't know of any source or replacement for the part.
