Frigidaire Microwave stopped microwaving, but convection works
Model Number: FGMV153CLBA Brand: Frigidaire Age: 1 - 5 years
My 4 year old over-the-oven microwave stopped microwaving today, but the convection part works. Everything else seems to work fine. i noticed some faint 'smoke' inside the oven at about the time it may have died.
What could be the problem? diode?
BTW, the plate DOES spin too.
Door switches are good.
I'm actually getting 120VAC at the inlet side of the high voltage transformer when the oven is (trying to) heat--but it doesn't heat. I assume this means the board is good.
I have checked the capacitor and it looks good as does the resistor within the cap. I checked out the magnitron which looks like it is fine when I do a continuity check, but looks a little worn and has some signs of rust. Is this normal?
I get ~0.6ohm on the inlet side of the high voltage transformer when everything is disconnected.
I think I checked the diode properly.
Anyone have ideas as to what to do next?
Replace the diode?
