    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.

Does anyone know if there are backlogs or distribution issues getting an Electrolux magnitron? I had one on order for over 4 weeks and every week they come back and say the manufacturer is saying its on backorder and to give it another week. If you know where I can get a new magnitron for this model, it would be much appreciated!
