Customer Question
I have a microwave...

I have a microwave oven that sparked after combo cooking a turkey. After I cleaned, I tested with cup of water and still got spark. I cleaned the deflector card tried again still sparked. Re-looked at the card and fond carbon ark. I have disassembled the oven and find that the magnatron tip that goes into the dispersion box has the tip arked of and it is open . Is this normal or do I have to replace the Magnatron?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the microwave's make and model? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

GE , JES1290SK01

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

YEs

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not that I am aware of. I will also have to replae the deflection card in the excitation cavity.
