Default Microwave Starts,Hums,Blows Fuse in 2 seconds
Model Number: JE1590   Brand: GE   Age: 1 - 5 years

Last night, started microwave, I immediatley heard a crackling type noise and unit went dead.
Fuse was blown, so I replaced and Convection portion of oven works fine. But whenever I start Microwave portion, I get a hum and within 1-2 seconds it blows the fuse. Have done this twice, so must be something else...Capacitor, HV Diode, Magnetron or ???- Would appreciate any advice as to what to try and in which order? Thank you in advance again, as this site has helped me many times!

Diode seemed fine, but HV capacitor was giving varying readings, so replaced both items, and am up and running.
