Question about Whirlpool MH1150XM Convection/Microwave Oven
I recently replaced the magnetron but it turned out that the inputs are located at 90 degrees than the original one. Because of this, I need a longer wire that connects capacitor and magnetron. Since capacitor holds high voltage (or Wattage) current, I am afraid of using the regular electric wire. Any advise on which wire should I use and where can I find it?
You were sent the wrong magnetron.
If the supplier will not give you the proper one, you can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order proper parts by entering your full model number here.
If you don't find it there, please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.
You would need high voltage wire, of course, but I would not recommend using the wrong magnetron in your oven since it is a critically tuned part, and will likely fail in short order if it is not the correct one.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Some models may have a separate high voltage fuse. If this is blown, there will be no heating but no other symptoms. However, high voltage fuses are somewhat rare on domestic ovens.
A number of failures can result in the fuse NOT blowing but still no heat:
Depending on design, a number of other component failures could result in no heat as well including a defective relay or triac, interlock switch(s), and controller.
