Question about Goldstar MV-1526 Microwave Oven
On the top portion of may microwave there is an air filter I want to remove it and clean it.How can I do it?
That sounds like the charcoal filter. It cannot be cleaned, and must be replaced. From the owner's manual:
CHARCOAL FILTER REPLACEMENT
If your oven is vented inside, the charcoal filter should
be replaced every 6 to 12 months, and more often if
necessary. The charcoal filter cannot be cleaned.
To order a new charcoal filter, contact the Service
1. Remove the two vent grille mounting screws.
(2 middle screws)
2. Tip the grille forward, then lift it out
To get a new filter, you can try local appliance parts stores or see customer service or find servicers here: http://us.lgservice.com

It sounds like the magnetron may have
either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high
voltage required to run it.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT
This is a job for a professional but if
you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!any capacitors are discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.
