5 out of 11 people found this instruction helpful

-Removed cover ("Star-pin" head security bit needed for this)
- Removed leads from hi-voltage capacitor
- Shorted cap leads with insulated wire to make sure it was dis-charged.
- Removed cap and the the hi-voltage diod
- Installed new parts.

Unfortunatly, still no mwaves (heat) produced, so this means it is the magantron that is dead. Will replace that next.
