  1. Was it making any odd noises prior to replacing the diode and capacitor?
  2. Is it running and making the same sound as it did when it was working?

No noise. Before I changed the diode and cap it wasn’t running. I changed diode and cap and now is running but not heating. Sounds normal. Nothin noisy
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Sounds normal

Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!

I believe the magnetron will need to be replaced. If you replaced the capacitor and diode, you will have no trouble replacing the magnetron.
