Answer Mark, We're sending you some information that will be more helpful. To test a magnetron tube once you've removed power and discharged the capacitor, disconnect the wires and check across the two terminals, you should have less than 1 ohm resistance, and check each terminal to the case, and there should be an "open" (infinite resistance)circuit. The diode/rectifier should read a "closed" circuit in one direction only No "closed" circuit in either direction or a resistance reading other than a closed circuit indicates a faulty diode.
