    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.

Hello,

My microwave is making this buzzing sound when the door is closed. When I open the door the buzzing sound stops. The light on the inside works and the turntable is turning. I have attached a video of the noise. Do I need to change the power board? Or is it something else
