    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.

Recently my oven stopped working. The broil flame lights as does the range top but, when I put the bake on and set the temp the flame doesn't light. It seems that the glow light turns on but the flame never appears. The oven in question is a Magic chef Model #3468vvv Serial #13311009ky. Please advise what the solution is ASAP. Thank you
