I purchased my whirlpool microwave late march this year. Early june it quit working. Whirlpool sent me a new circuit board and a new magnetron, which I installed myself. Six weeks later it went out again.This time I orded only the magnetron,everything else seemed to be working as it should, except not heating up.Same as the first time it went out. I installed the new magnetron friday, used microwave two times for about a minute each time. Third time,it made a load noise. I quickly shut it off and turned it back on and it seemed to work fine. The next day ,after the third use, it made the same load noise. I thought I better take it apart to see what the problem was. I found, that the end of the magnetron had turn blue and melted a hole as if you took a tourch to it! I have another magnetron on the way. Am I waisting my time with this microwave?Is there a history of this model or this magnetron, part no. 8206079 ? Is their something else causing this? I am getting very disgusted!!! Please help me.

My microwave was purchased in late march of 2011. It keeps burning out magnetrons. Whirlpool only replaced the magnetron and the circuit board once,whitch I had to install.That magnetron lasted about five weeks.I then purchased another through parts pros. I just installed it yesterday,it worked fine about 3 short times, and then the microwave made a load sound. I turned it off quickly. I turned it back on again and it worked fine. I used it this morning for a min. and 30secs. it worked fine. The next time it made the same load noise, and I shut it off quickly.I took it apart to see what the problem was. The tip of the magnetron was melted. I have another one on the way. Am I waisting my time repairing? Should I give up and buy a new microwave?What could be causing this problem and is thier a history with this brand or model?
