Question about Microwave Ovens
When a magnetron goes bad, it has to be replaced. A magnetron cannot be repaired.
The parts and labor warranty for most brands is one year, and the magnetron warranty is usually about 5 years.
If it fails after the first year, you will have to pay for the labor for the home call and replacement of the magnetron, which often runs about $125-165, depending on your market.
They should not charge you the part cost of the magnetron.
