SOURCE: Replace a magnetron tube
Magnetrons cannot be 'repaired,' only replaced. While the cost of them has decreased by about 75% over the last couple of decades, the parts you receive are often inferior to the original and will show this only after installed and operating and then the time required for different tasks may be much longer. Unless there is something unique about the unit, I advise replacing it.

Finally built up the courage to call GE Appliance number and weave my way through the phone menu system. Pressed the right menu option (sales) to speak to someone about trim kits. Found out that the trim kit model number is JX1527MWW. Then called back to select a different menu option (other) and learned from someone else that since the trim kit model is more than 1-2 years old, there's a slim-to-none chance any new microwave models will work with it, and even if there was they couldn't easily cross-reference against a model that old to tell me which one (or something to that effect). So I hit a dead end. Only option for me at this point is to buy a new microwave with new trim kit.
(Personal note: I think the trim kit business is a racket, in bed with the microwave manufacturers. Why else would there be no standard dimensions for microwaves by now--like refrigerators have--and why is it a few pieces of sheet metal cost over $150? Pretty convenient that every microwave model needs its own trim kit model!)

At first I was concerned but then I realized what it was.
Congrats on their sending you the mag!
How did you convince them to do that? Did they make you sign a waiver?

Try Ace Appliance who can cross reference most of these megatron tubes. Most of the time, its getting the access to the tube that will take up most of your time inside the microwave. Also, another good place to find these parts is Daewoo website.
