Question about Bosch Microwave Ovens
Greetings, Based on symptoms, it appears that my magnetron is bad. I found a replacement part and will order it, if replcement procedure is not too difficult. I am knowledgeable about electronics and elecricity. Also, are there any extra manuals or documents to provide guidance for this task ? Thanks very much for your help. Gratefully, -Frank
It should not be too difficult, but the fault could also be a failure of the HV transformer or the big capacitor in that circuit.
As you may be aware, the main precaution is to make sure the HV capacitor is fully discharged before you work on that circuit.
Some have a self discharge resistor, but that also can fail. Here is a typical circuit
and the diagram for your unit may be pasted to the inside of the casing. If you are sure it is the magnetron, you only have to discern the mechanical fixings of it after that.
