It was a over the range microwave It had to be removed off the wall. Once down I removed the bottom plate and then removed the touch control panel. Per the instructions in the user manual tested the transformer it was ok. Next tested the capacitor it tested bad and also the diode tested bad. The parts were ordered from you. The parts installed easily. Reassembled the microwave and tested. Unit no longed tripped the AC breaker and worked heating some water. Installed the unit back above the range.
