    This microwave stopped heating. I tested the elctrical circuits an
    discovered a bad diode that was connected to the capacitor. I called L
    due to no part#'s. in the manuals. I called and spoke to the parts dept
    , they told me that they can not identify the part due to too man
    diodes in the system.The diode has the following info on it HVR-1X , S
    3018. Does anyone know where I might be able to purchase this diode
     
  2. What is the voltage rating of the main capacitor (the one which will kill
    you)?

    The HVR-1X is a common diode for microwave ovens. It can be replace with
    an NTE517:

    Be carefull in testing the diode with a normal ohmeter. It seems to b
    open in both directions.
    because of the high impedance.
    Perhaps your problem is the magnetron
