Hi,
Probably not a relay, but a fuse...
The fuse is replaceable, but you will have to remove the cover and then find the fuse inside...there may be more then one and you will need to test each to see which one is bad...
Also there are very dangerous voltages inside a microwave so be extremely careful when you are probing around in there...a very small mistake could be fatal...

Frigidaire microwave not working


Is the door closing properly? Do you hear it "click" when it closes. A lot of times the problem is the door switch. It is located inside the microwave. They are made of plastic and they break. If the switch is broken, the magnetron(microwaves) will not start.

Clicking sound in my KHMS155LSS-4 also will not heat up


The clicking sound would probably be a realy on the Circuit board. Do you have it set on Full power?? If it is set on a lower power setting the relays will open and close to try to regulate the cook power.

The problem is more than likely in the microprocessor control board, sometimes a bad relay, or poor solder points.

GE PVM2070SMSS Microwave, Unit runs for a sec then shuts off.


Obvious thing is to try plugging in a different receptacle to verify if it might be bad wiring in your kitchen. Make sure to use a different circuit, maybe in different room. If it is the circuit, then likely cause is those plugs with push in back wiring. Replace with ones that wire screws to.

Viking microwave has digital lights but will not turn on to cook?


Hi the problem will be with the touch panel membrane or the controller. if yoiu can hear a click when the start button is pressed then the touch panel is OK asnd you should look at the controller which can be replaced as a unit or if you are up to it it's probably the main cook relay that has failed.
