I'm thinking I may go ahead and buy them so i can have them on hand sooner and just return what i don't use. My thinking is go ahead and purchase the Magnatron and the fuse. What else would you suggest i purchase....

...3) Do you recommend i get a Digital or Analog Multi meter...
1) It's very good to have it in a garage for troubleshooting and/or repair. You will need the oven powered up only at the final step to see if it's fixed or not.

2) So far it is unpredictable.

3) I really don't see any difference. You can find more information in of our previous threads: How To Check Continuity With Ohmmeter
