SOURCE: Does not heat up
Test the high voltage capacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.
If it additionally does not spin and no light, then check also the door switch and fuse.
The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be alloweddischarge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even ifpower is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their twocontacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.
