It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT

This is a job for a professional but if you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.



Load test.

A simple safety test.
Place 1/2 litre of water in a glass container. Measure the temperature of the water.
Place in microwave and heat on full power for 1minute.
Measure the temperature after it has stood for 1minute.
If the temperature difference is more than 9 degrees Celcuis the magnetron is working and producing about 700Watts of heat.
If your microwave is labelled with 900 or 1000Watts. That is about right.
If the temperature is less then the magnetron is not working properly and may need replacing.


This a only a rough guide and any doubts you should consult an authorised service agent.

That's the waveguide cover.

If your waveguide cover is burned or damaged, it will need to be replaced.

It provides critical protection for the magnetron.

You should be able to get Galaxy parts from the Sears site.

To find helpful exploded view diagrams and get part numbers, you can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

A full Galaxy/Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

Unplug it. Take off the metal cover. Look for a fuse. Probably blown, replace it with same size. If it blows again, scrape it.

Your magnetron may be shot. Best to go shopping. Not many repairable parts on a microwave. Plainly, it's more expensive to have iy checked out.

THE HIGH VOLTAGE FUSE IS IN A PLASTIC EXTRUSION NEXT TO THE CAPACITOR AND DIODE.
YOU CAN USE 3 OR 4 STRANDS OF THIN WIRE FROM MULTI STRAND 15A MAINS CABLE. SOLDER IT OVER THE BLOWN FUSE. I HAVE DONE THIS 100'S OF TIMES.

It's most likely your door switch. I have the same problem and was told that. I'm not 100% certain, but will take a look at mine and let you know.

What is it that you are losing ? You can set the power level by using the marked touchpads on the touchpanel, much like setting the volume on a TV. If you do not change the power setting and it is taking a long time to heat things or intermittently fails to, that is usually a sign that the Magnetron has reached its use by date and needs to be replaced. Not always an economical proposition unfortunately as spare parts are often exorbitantly priced.
Before removing the cover of the oven in attempt to carry out any maintenance such as replacing the Oven cavity lamp, make sure the oven is disconnected from the power point ! The voltages in a microwave oven ARE LETHAL !

turntable drive may be fouling on cabinet.
Take out the table and see if it is still slow. To centre the drive- take the panel off the bottom, you may have to cut the metal the first time
