    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.

Hi
my Samsung microwave has a little microwave symbol in the bottom left corner of the timer screen and the timer will count down but that's it. Just happened, does anybody have a idea what it might be, the dealer said buy a new one, that's typical
