    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

Hi there!
Our microwave (Model# 85610 and 529.85610-0) stopped heating food. It's a microwave/range hood combo. Everything else works. No sparks or weird noises. It even sounds like it's cooking. We unplugged it and replugged it and it worked for another day or so and now nothing again. I'm not very savvy with microwaves (but I have fixed my dishwasher using this forum). Would love some help with what to do....even if it means I have to buy a new one. (But would like to salvage this one).

Thanks for your quick replies!!
