visible sparking inside top of MW unit

Remove the two screws to the plastic vent strip at the top of the unit. That exposes a metal cover (upper right) held in place by two more screws. (Found that removing the screw holding the key panel in place and moving that out of the way made for more work room) Remove the metal cover. The HV diode (visible) on one end is secured to the chassis by a screw. The other end is fitted to the HV capacitor. So unscrew one end and pull the HV diode off the capacitor. The replacement fits on like the old one came off. Very simple repair. But it would be safe to short the capacitor terminals to the chassis first. Noticed that it appeared the sparking was caused by the HV diode's outer casing being worn by the asbestos covered wire next to it and laying against it. I made sure the two were not touching, before putting the covers back on. Also, the problem started with an occasional spark when the MW started. It quickly deteriorated to a full, non-stop electrical sparking. You can hear it, smell it, and see it through the top vent. You don't need to remove unit to work on it.

Loosened but did not remove screws that held up microwave over range,removed grill on top by loosening screws that held grill in place.removed small mesh grill on right side of microwave, this gave me access to capacitor ,diode is connected from one lead of capacitor to a metal plate ground,Disccarged capacitor to ground by shorting terminals to ground using a thick insulated screwdriver.Since the diode was screwed to the top of the metal plate I cut it out with a pair of side cutters .I then connected the new diode to the capacitor with my long nose pliers and groonded the other end to a more accessible part of the metal grounding plate.I then replaced all parts in reverse order.Works like a charm.

Taking the door apart was easy once you figured out how it came apart. Youtube videos were not helpful as every brand of microwave is different; what works for one does not work for another. My Kitchenaide has little interior hooks on the inside of the door, 8 on top, 8 on bottom, 4 on the hinge side. You have to pry the door-skin up to get teh hook disengaged, then get a putty knife or similar to keep the hooks from re-engaging. Once you have about 6 or 7 undone, the door starts to come apart. Eventually the exterior of the door comes off; the interior of the door remains hinged. After that, you'll figure it out...

Removed microwave case and bad part was right there in plain sight attached to the magatron. Two screws and two wires and part replacement was done. Plugged in microwave and works perfect. Couldn't have been any easier. Thanks for the easy troubleshooting and parts suggestions on your site.

machine was dead.

After removing the over-the-range unit (no small feat!) I had to figure out how to open the case (good puzzle!). Capacitor had already discharged, so it was very easy to reach in, pop the old fuse and install the new one! As per your advice, I found out I was a "28%-er"! Upon re-installation, the microwave "sprang to life"!! Thanks, "Part Select"!! I was already shopping around for a new machine! (Now if you could only tell me an easier way to re-mount this heavy beast over the stove!!!)
