• ** 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.

I have a 1996 Kenmore microwave model number 721.89941490 SN 610KM15807 that just stopped heating. Everything else works as required. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi,

**microwave that just stopped heating**

How?

Runs but not cooking? Sits there dead? Clock counts down but nothing else is happening/running? Makes a strange noise?

A wee bit more info and someone should be able to help :)
