The microwave oven works as usual just not heating food. Fan works, light works. Could it be capacitor?
Answer Hello Jack,
This can be the capacitor, diode, high voltage transformer, magnetron, or the control board. These components should be tested to avoid ordering unnecessary replacement parts. Be aware that the unit should be un-plugged and the high voltage capacitor should be dis-charged to ground before contacting it to prevent electrical shock.
Pressed button to turn on microwave, heard a zapping sound, oven went dead, is that the magnatron? Control panel on micro controls lower oven, all is well with that thanks in advance ted
Answer Ted, It could be the magnetron 4392008, and probably is. But there are other components you need to test as well 4313101,815073 any one of these components will produce a "zapping" sound, and cause the thermal fuse 4313613 to open and eliminate the power to "cook". Your best bet is to get access to a multi meter and circuit test each component .
