Question about Viking VMOR205SS Microwave Oven
On Certain conditions, they must have a basic knowledge of what they are doing, save your loved ones the cost of a funeral and buy a $50 print on microwave servicing to learn mainly how to discharge a high voltage capacitor, which store a dangerous amount of voltage. as long as the magnatron is of the same dimensions and vents, screws all go in the same way as well,certain models require the same value magnatron, some dont. Good Luck.

Tips for a great answer:
NOTE: Before you test this component, make sure your microwave is unplugged, and that you have discharged the capacitors.
There are two tests to conduct in order to
determine whether or not a magnetron has become defective. If you
receive results other than what are detailed below, you will have to
replace your microwave's magnetron. Each test is described for you here:
TEST 1: Locate your magnetron
and label each of the wires attached to it so that you know which wires
are to be replaced where. Set your ohmmeter to the lowest resistance
scale. Take a resistance measurement between each of the magnetron's
terminals by touching each probe to one terminal each. Reverse the
probes and take a second resistance measurement. Each measurement should
read less than one ohm.
TEST 2: Set your ohmmeter to its
highest resistance scale. Touch one of the meter's probes to a magnetron
terminal. Touch the other probe to the metal magnetron housing. Take
special caution to not touch the two probes together. This could result
in an inaccurate reading. This test should produce a reading of infinity
- indicating an open circuit.
To replace the magnetron
Have a certified and experienced appliance repair technician examine and
replace your magnetron. This task is much too dangerous for the average
layman to perform on his own
Hope this was helpful you.
All the best
