Why is the Magnetron of my Microwave overheating?
I bought GE Spacemaker XL 1800 microwave almost 12 years ago. It was working fine until last week since then it has stopped heating. I searched at the Internet and thought it was the magnetron. I ordered a new magnetron at Amazon and replaced with the previous one. After replacing the magnetron, microwave started to heat normally. In the meantime magnetron was overheating. When I used the microwave consecutively for estimated 10 minutes, microwave cut off. Then I changed Diode and capacitor as well and tried different combinations but the problem didn't go away. It is heating food but magnetron gets overheated and cuts off.
Has anyone faced the similar problem ? Should I replace my microwave or is there any solution ?
Thanks in advance.
Is this a good question?
