Appears to be Omron 24VDC relay on control board. Ideas?

So, the new control board should fix it. Hopefully the magnetron is still good because my suggestion about it was based on the noise from the above of the control panel. The magnetron is sitting there.

Yeah I figured the board was bad. The sound seemed to come from the back but I pulled the unit and powered it with the cover removed. I could feel the relay making noise. Also checked diode while it was apart. Thanks for your help.
Happy holidays!

Back to square one again! I replaced the control board and no luck. Still shuts off after 3 sec. What to do now?

Sorry to hear it.

Does it make the same noise too? Does the fan work?

Yeah same noise from relay on the board. Fan works also. I have checked door switches, diode, thermal cut switch, ohmed the magnetron. Need new ideas.

Very strange situation. Try to replace the magnetron. If it would not fix the problem then you can return it.
