Question about Microwave Ovens
If, when you hit Start, the fan comes on, you either have a bad relay (RY2) or a bad latch switch (the bottom, outside switch) or a failed part in the high voltage section, most likely a bad connection at the FA terminal of the magnetron, or a bad magnetron itself.
If, when you hit Start, the fan does not come on, you have a bad 1st interlock switch (the top switch).
