• ** 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.

My Microwave has died. Outlet power is good, but I've got no lights and no activity. Upon inspection, noticed charring on the #21 Thermostat, (KSD 140LC) and couldn't remove the left wire due to the charring. Had to re-terminate wires and replaced the thermostat with a DE47-20034A. I've plugged it back in; still no power. both bottom thermostats test open, top thermostat tests closed. Both fuses that were visible to me tested closed as well.... not sure where to go next. Any help would be appreciated!
