Question about Magic Chef MCD1311ST Microwave Oven
I think the magnatron is defective. Is there any kind of reset?
The magnetron should have a thermostat or some other kind of heat protection device on it, but if it is activated, it will open up the power line, making the oven truly dead until it cools down.
So if it's dead, it may be a fuse or a thermal cutout / thermostat.
Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:
- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)
