You've got a problem in the microwave circuit, which could be one or more of the following components -

1) HV diode
2) HV Capacitor
3) HV transformer
4) Magnetron

I am leaning to the diode, but it would take further investigation to determine for sure. Diodes are cheap, as if the capacitor, and replacing those first would not necessarily be in vain if it turns out to be the transformer or magnetron. And I would be most inclined to say it's the magnetron before I would think transformer.

Reply back what you find or if you have more questions.

The most likely thing is the magnetron has 'died' but there is a high voltage fuse between the capacitor and the magnetron which may blow. Either way, repairs to microwaves are dangerous and should only be undertaken by a qualified repairer. PS I have seen a mouse cause this problem!

It could be a number of things, Burnt connections between the magnetron, Capacitor, Diode and transformer, Heater connections loose or burnt, Transformer, Capacitor Diode or Magnetron US. You need to strip it and find out if you are getting about 2000volts to the Mag, Are you getting approx 5volts across the heater terminals?? NOTE that the 2000 Volts can remain in the cap indefinitely and the voltage is LETHAL. IT WILL KILL YOU if you don`t take precautions. Ian
