Question about Goldstar MW-1420 1200 Watts Microwave Oven
My ~4 yrs old 1000 watt microwave oven has started a nasty habit of acting like an arc welder every 5th time we run the unit (or so). I removed a cardboard cover on the right-hand inside wall to reveal a metal cylinder with holes in the end that seems to have a burn hole in the top. It looks like if I had a new cylinder things might work well. Is it time to throw it in the trash?
You better be carefull my friend or you will start glowing in the dark!! LOL Just kidding. But I wont kid about how dangerous that metal cylinder can be with the holes in the top. Thats the magnatron. It has very high voltage going to it and you should never ever touch any wires going to it even if its unplugged as theres a capacitor in there that holds a charge for a time. f the oven is over several years old, Im sure the magnatron will cost more then a new oven, after you add labor and such. It just migfht be time to upgrade to a new microwave?? Good Luck
