Question about Emerson MW8985W Microwave Oven
It sounds to me as though your magnetron is shorted. If you have an ohmmeter, DISCONNECT POWER, unplug the connector on the magnetron, and make two tests. From pin to pin should measure less than an ohm. This is the filament. From either lead to the frame of the magnetron should measure infinite. Do not touch the lead tips while making this measurement (makes false reading). If the magnetron checks okay, perhaps you have a shorted capacitor, or diode.
