Question about Microwave Ovens
It stopped working when the start button was pressed. It made a popping sound and it smelled like something had burned. Now there is no power to the unit. The house circuit breaker was not tripped.
If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.
If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.
It may also be the high-voltage rectifier diode.
