How difficult is installation of magnetron? I have never had a microwave apart but would like to install myself and save $$. I assume my problem is a dead magnetron as the unit will not heat, everything else is working.Thanks in advance for your help, Al.
Answer Hi Al. It is not hard. Remove power. Remove unit from mount. Remove cabinet back. Magnetron location is on the inside top rt. 4-bolts mount it on. Also, you will need to electrically discharge the capacitor by using an insolated pair of needle nose pliers and shorting the tips of the pliers with the cap. terminals. You are then working momenentarily w/ high voltage and use extreme caution so you do not contact a live path. The magnetron is part # 8205812. The diode is part # 8205489. The capacitor is part # [AP311962]. Thank You.
