Question about General Electric Microwave Oven
Here a new one. GE Microwave model JE2160SF001 work but hums loud. Tested rectifier diode and HVCap. Tryed a new magnitron and it still hums.Reading 80.5 ohms on secondary winding and less than 1ohm on the other windings. None shorted to ground. I am at a loss not knowing what the secondary winding shoud be as it not shown on the scamatic.

you cannot check a microwave diode with just a mutli meter . you have to make a test jig take a 9 volt battery and a meter with dc volt scale set up the meter just like you would test a 9v battery .with me so far ? now remove one lead from the battery and insert the diode between the battery and the test lead .......take a reading . now reverse the diode take a reading ........ i just tested a diode before writeing this and this is what i got my battey volts where 9.2 v whith the diode inserted i got 7volts . reversing it i got .02 volts dc . a diode is a one way valve and mine is good because it passed curent only one way ...yours should be about the same ....... if you understand this please leave me 4 stars ! i even went out in the shop and tested a diode for you just to make sure my answer was correct

are you sure the magnatron was gone, that is rare, usually one or both of the diodes go (take out of cct and check with a meter
