Question about Microwave Ovens
I have a Sharp R-1451 Microwave that stopped working after i heard a pop noise and then it stopped heating. When I run it it has a load buzzing noise but will not heat... Any idea what could have gone wrong with it. It sounded like a capacitor went or heating unit.
It's probably a shorted high voltage rectifier diode.
