Default GE Magnetron replacement! Where does diode go?
Model Number: JVM1631BB0001   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years

Help,

I just had my magnetron go out again for the 2nd time in 9 years of use of my 1999 model GE microwave JVM1631BB 001. It's time to replace the unit but I was able to get the magnetron replace under warranty from GE. So, I sit here looking at the OLD magnetron which has 2 wires that appear to go to a capacitor and my NEW magnetron that comes with a HV diode with no place to attach those 2 wires. Where does the new HV diode go and do I just simply disconnect the other two wires? How do I make this fit and work without exploding my house?

The new GE part number is WB27X10489 if that helps!

Thank you so much,
Keith

The diode is connected to the capacitor, not the magtube. Behind the control panel is the capacitor, and you will see the diode connected to the cap, and the other end to ground.
