Question about Microwave Ovens
Samsung microwave works but nothing gets hot. Water after 4 minutes is still cool to the touch. Is this a magnetron issue?
You are 100% correct in your guess of the magnetron is bad and is need of being replaced. You do have to verify that the mounting bracket is the same and preferrably of the same wattage that was installed or of a higher value if you are replacing it from another microwave that was discarded. The magnetron is usually built very well so most microwaves that are tossed are due to the control panel display and not the the magnetron tube assembly.
The best bet would be to purchase the same model # magnetron that was removed from the oven if you are doing it yourself.
