Question about Microwave Ovens
Thank you for your prompt suggestions yesterday.
I checked the stirrer motor and that runs freely.
I ran the water test. After 63 sec. the water only increased 5 degrees F. So I guess the magnatron is only pumping out ~ 350W.

Assuming your power line voltage is right, bearing the whole thread in mind, I'm sure you have a bad magnetron.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
If you follow the safety & disassembly info, this is not a difficult job for a do-it-yourselfer.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
