Question about Kenmore 63792 Microwave Oven
If you put metal, like an alluminium foil into microwave, the magnetron will start arching, and you will damage magnetron, diode or capacitor.
Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.
The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.
All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.
