• ** REMEMBER! **The microwave can still shock you even unplugged!!

    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.

Like the title says, my DVM7195EK1ES GE over the range microwave started making a humming noise the other day after I cooked something but would stop when I opened the door. As I was standing there opening and shutting the door to show my wife, the whole thing shut off and went dead. I have read that it could be the line fuse, a door switch, the magnetron thermostat, or the magnetron itself. Anyone have this happen or know what it could be?
