Question about Microwave Ovens
All functions work, but doesn't heat. Faint burning smell.
High voltage parts: Capacitor, Diode, Magnatron are suspect. Need
to put a voltmeter on the input (primary) side to the high-voltage
transformer (big heavy iron thing in there) Should be getting 120Vac
when it goes to cook cycle. Don't touch the other (high voltage)
side of this transformer. If the power is there, you are looking
at replacing either the magnatron or the high-voltage capacitor and
diode. Its affordable if you do it yourself - buy the part on
EBAY - lookup "universal magnatron"
Hope ya fix it!
