SOURCE: I have kenmore microwave model 721.80012401 it does not heat, I checked the magnetron thermostat, capacitor and the only thing that does not check out is the diode,can the diode cause this problem?
yes your diode can keep it from heating but it usually makes a loud growling if diode is bad. there is also another thermal disc on the other side of the oven that could be open. usually can see it in a hole in the plastic with 2 wires. if there is continuity on both this and the mag thermal, you may have a bad magnetron
