Question about Microwave Ovens
Obviously something blew in the oven. This will require shop service. It can be anything from the main controler to one of the power supplies.

The magnetron may have either failed or
is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
If the magnetron has failed it is possible that it has taken out the mains fuse. Replace all faulty components with identical types and values!
Hope that helps.
