Where is the diode located, and does the unit need to be did cared before i attempt it?

Wayne for model number JVM1730DP2BB

Hi Wayne, Thank you for your inquiry. You will have to make sure that the appliance is unplugged before starting your repair. Be aware that the high voltage capacitor in your appliance may still retain a charge even after being unplugged. It is recommended that an experienced professional should handle the internal electrical parts inside of your microwave. You will have to remove the Vent Grille and the outer control panel so that you can get to the little metal grille that covers the top right hand area where your diode is. This is where you have to be extremely careful as the diode is very close to the high voltage capacitor. To avoid getting shocked you can use a part of needle nose pliers but ONLY if they have an insulated handle. You can touch the metal part to the high voltage capacitor to release any held charge. Be very careful not to touch any of the metal as you are doing this. If you feel that you are not able to do a repair like this, I do recommend that you call a technician. Once you have made sure the area is safe for you to work, you can then unscrew the diode from it's place and then replace it with your new one. I hope this helps you!
