• ** 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.

Identifying microwave diode that connects between capacitor leads (NN-MX25WF)

I have a Panasonic Microwave oven (Model: nn-mx25wf). A couple months ago the fuse blew and had to replace it along with the capacitor and diode that connects from the capacitor to the chassis. It was working fine until a wire broke and the microwave stopped heating.

There's another diode that connects between the capacitor leads and this seems to have a broken wire. The text on it has been erased and can't identify it.

I did find the Service Manual which specifies the diode with the cable as part ​F606V5G10XN, but can't find any info anywhere and no-one carries it.

Here is where I got the Service Manual from. ​


Here is the link to the program to view the SGM files.


Some pictures of my microwave here.

I went to a local electronics shop and they sold me the same diode that goes to the chassis from the capacitor (HVM12 350 040). Would it be ok to use that one?
