Question about Maytag MMV4205 Microwave Oven
Control panel works, but the magnetron does not come on. this is a new microwave that has never been used but warranty has expired. I tested for continuity on this part and it was dead. All the other thermostats checked o'k. Could this be my problem ? thanks, Al
