Question about Emerson MW8168B Microwave Oven
We have a sound clip of what a
microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are
A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.
If there's no unusual noise, it may just be a bad connection at the magnetron.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for high voltage section test help, but read the safety warnings first:
(if it is NOT shorted or burned looking, it's probably fine)
(continuity can be good even though mag is bad!)
