• ** 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.

Is it normal for the fan to run while the Microwave is running? I just replaced the Megatron and don't remember the fan operating during the microwave function. Model MWH32519FS1

Which fan, the exhaust fan or the internal cooling fan?

The internal cooling fan should operate whenever the microwave is heating.

I can't view that video.

If the fan stops when cooking is finished, it is likely working normally.

If the cooling fan is louder than normal, you might want to make sure the installation of the magnetron tube didn't affect the fan is some way.
