Question about Magic Chef Microwave Ovens
Open the housing cover by removing the screws at the back and at the sides ( if they have).
remove the wires that is connected to the magnetron( it is safer to discharge first the capacitor by shorting out the leads of the capacitor. a spark might occur ( be carefull) use an insulated screw driver and short the two leads.
after you are sure that there is no more stored power at the capacitor, then proceed in removing the magnetron.
you can remove the sensor at the top, then the 4 screws that holds it in place. be carefull as you pull it off. it has a metal tip at the end of the magnetron.
if you notice the mica cover of the wave guide being dark and almost burnt, do replace it.
check for scratches of the metal near the magnetron. re-paint all metals that are visible. you have to cover all metals from the magnetron to prevent arching.
