Question about Kenmore 62702 Microwave Oven
Hello, this is less than 2 years old. Today it runs and sounds like it should but does not heat items. Im familiar with Electronics and monitor repairs etc.Just wondering if anyone knows what might be bad and how to discharge hi volts if needed before working on. Thanks very much for your time.!
The magnetron may be OK, it could be as simple as a failed fuse or a high voltage diode or bridge.
Open the unit and if you have even a primitive multimeter you can check the diode and fuse: the diode will measure close to 0 Ohms, the fuse (remove from holder) will measure open, if bad.
The fuse will have a high amperage rating somewhere from 10-20 amperes; call appliance service companies or big hardware stores to find this. Buy two, so if one blows, you have a second on hand to use after possibly replacing the diode.
The diode may be tougher since a device with the necessary ratings of hundreds of volts and a dozen or so amperes aren't used in many devices.

The magnetron provides the heat and it is common for them to fail. You can get parts, manual, and more at repairclinic.com or partselect.com
