I figured it was the magnetron that probably went out. That's a no brainer. Is that part easy to replace or do I need a technician? Does it "snap in " as a replacement part? If I need a technician then I might as well get a new unit.
I'm handy at doing repairs like this myself but is there any degree of "expertise" needed to replace the magnetron? Once I get into the back of the microwave....does that part just pop out & snap back into place with connectors at the end of the wires or are special tools required to do the job?
