Hi,

The water may have contributed, but probably not...

As to what poped... it is hard to say exactly without having it opened in front of me...my guess is either the high voltage transformer or the magnetron it's self...

Either way you are looking at a very expensive repair...if the parts are available...

Till you pay the parts and the labor to fix it you will be very near the cost of a new one...

Hi, if your unit microwave runs but is buzzing very loudly and not heating up, then you have problems with the magnetron, the high voltage capacitor, or the power diode. These components are all high voltage components and need to be treated with great care. A good technician knows how to diagnose and repair them safely....

Frigidaire microwave doesn't work


Don't have a fix for your problem, but my Frigidaire microhood just did the exact same thing--about the same age, started cooking some food and it worked for a few minutes and then just stopped--time kept going, light stayed on, but turn table stopped and fan noise cut out. I tried it a few more times and it seemed to fade in and out and then stopped trying.

The main power fuse inside the MW may have been blown from the steam shorting out the circuitry. If so this fuse probably can be replaced. Lowes has replacement fuses.

The most likely problem is the magnetron. Check your warranty in owners manual, I believe you have five year warranty on magnetron.
