Question about Microwave Ovens
Yes, the most likely culprit to blowing your fuse is the magnetron itself. It is defective and causing an overload each time it comes on. If you do replace the magnetron replace the large electrolyctic capacitor (that is the big one that the magnetron connects to also) so that you do not have to do double the work. Alot of these magnetrons and capacitors are interchangeable as long as you can set them in place with screws. I do not what type of supply house you have but alot of people throw away microwaves with these parts still usable. Good luck.
