Question about Microwave Ovens
Since 6 gage wire is heavier duty (thicker) than 8 gage, it will be more than sufficient to supply the oven. I'm not an electrician, per se, but have obtained permits to add wiring to additions years ago, so I know some things. The important issue is to check to make sure it meets or exceeds code, for insurance purposes, and you can verify that your wiring meets code by calling the permit people in your area, just to be safe. Any electrical contractor in your area should be able to verify this.
I think you'll be fine.

It sounds like the magnetron may have
either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high
voltage required to run it.
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 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.
