Question about Sharp Microwave Ovens
I have a sharp carousel R-4W38 microwave, about 8 yrs old that just started arcing inside when used. The arcing has burned thru the cover plate. I am sure it's the microwave generator "Magnatron???" but cannot find the part number or what that part will cost.
I repair comupters all day so I am confident I can disassemble this thing and replace the part if I can find it....
My questions are:
1. Can someone help me witht he part number and cost?
2. Is there any adjustment that needs to be made after the part is replaced that I cannot do because I don't have meters?
3. Any other gotcha's that I might not be thinking about here?
Found the online service manual and did the troubleshooting necessary to determine it was the magnatron. I have one ordered.
