should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit
control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is
very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
From the mini-manual:
(Note that these troubleshooting directions are meant for a technician, but one who swaps boards, not repairs them to component level)
To find helpful exploded view diagrams and get part numbers, you can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.
But Sears parts can usually be obtained for far less here by entering either the part number.
One should also check the wiring and connectors from the control board to the inverter and inverter to magnetron, etc.
Be sure to work with the power unplugged and you may want to discharge the high voltage capacitor.
If nothing else, you can save about $75 by taking it to the Sears-authorized shop yourself.
Otherwise, you can contact Sears for service.
