With smaller items in my Microwave (Sears 565.69581890) there

This answer was rated:

With smaller items in my Microwave (Sears 565.69581890) there is sometimes a bright and noisy light behind the "Cavity Cover". Is this repairable ?

Robert :

Hello.

Robert :

This is usually a sign of a failing magnetron on these units OR a bad spot in the cavity.

Robert :

Is the bright light in the middle or along the edge of the cover?

Customer:

Middle and almost filling the cover

Robert :

That is definitely the magnetron on this unit. Let me look that up and see what kind of cost you are looking at. How old is the unit?

Customer:

It's more than 10 years old. I can get the Magnetron from Sears for $79
