your main control board is bad in this , you didnt send a model # XXXXX in most cases its cheaper to replace than repair, also working on any microwave is extremly dangerous. heres what the goverment has to say about it. <img usemap="#BANNER2.jpg" src="" border="0" alt="CPSC Banner" width="521" height="85" /> <h3><strong>Consumer Product Safety Commission</strong></h3><h3>Electrocution Hazard with Do-It-Yourself Repairs of Microwave Ovens</h3><strong>CPSC Document #5061</strong> <hr /><br />The U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) warns against do-it-yourself repairs of microwave ovens. Each year, on average, four people die from electrocution trying to repair their microwave ovens. Microwave ovens use high voltage which makes it particularly hazardous for consumers to remove the cover and touch electrical parts. The possibility for electrical shock from a microwave oven still exists even after the oven is disconnected from the power source. Should certain internal devices fail, even unplugged ovens can cause serious injury. <br /><br />The Commission strongly recommends that consumers have professionals repair microwave ovens because electrical appliances can be hazardous if consumers expose live electrical parts.<br /><br /><hr /><br /><strong>/!\ WARNING <br /><br />ELECTROCUTION HAZARD <br />HIGH VOLTAGE <br /><br /></strong>Removing the cover of your microwave oven and touching an electrical part can kill you. <br /><br />Have a professional repair your microvave oven ,,, please call for service or replace the microwave. be safe, thanks Bryan
