My Samsung microwave had power but did not cook, so we bought a new magnetron. The supplier gave us a LG magnetron. We replaced the magnetron and without closing the cover, tried out the microwave first. It worked, but as soon as we close the cover and try cooking something, it cuts out at about 2 - 3 seconds. It even happens when we bring the cover close to the microwave without touching it! Could it be that the LG magnetron is incompatible or is there a different problem now?
