The H98 error code indicates a primary failure in the magnetron or inverter circuitry. This is like your body telling you that you are having a heart attack. Serious but possibly repairable. If it is the magnetron the repair will run about $250.00 to $400.00. The inverter will be a little more depending on the extent of the testing that the tech does to be sure that is the problem. Whether you decide to repair or replace depends on your personal budget. This is an advanced repair and not a repair most people are capable or willing to do since you are dealing with high voltage.
