Determining the root cause was fairly simple - but one should always identify the basic repair part first that may be the root cause - in this order - Diode - HV Capacitor - Magnetron due to costs of fixing the issue. I found that after replacing the two major components it may have been just the Diod/Rectifier a low coat resolution - but one never knows if the issue was one or many problems that wouldn't allow the Microwave to heat. The team at PartSelect was very helpful and was able to expidite the Magnetron to my residence to start the repair process KUDO's to the Customer Service Team!
