The capacitor is definitely good. Otherwise it will blow the fuse.

The HV transformer is the last thing to think about because their failure is very rare.

You can find the instructions on how to check the diode in one of our previous threads; diode testing

If the diode is good then the magnetron is the culprit.

Only you can decide if it worth it.

- The magnetron Part number: W10210845

Part number: W10210845

- The diode Part number: W10163432

Part number: W10163432
