Microwave oven power.

    Greetings group.
    On Sharp microwave ovens they give 2 output power values.

    e.g. IEC 900W and AS 750W

    Which value should I use when I look for a replacement magnetron in the
    WES catalog?


    At the moment, I need a replacement for 2M167B in model R-4H54.

    The magnetron I am considering is AM723 1000W.


    Thanks in advance,
    Russell.

    They're completely different mechanically, at the very least. Why not just
    use the replacement part? It's equally easily available.

    Thanks for the reply Ken.

    But I will have to disagree about being completely different
    mechanically.

    All the dimensions of AM723 in the WES catalog are a perfect match with
    the 2M167B I have here.

    The cost of a genuine 2M167B from Speedy Spares is $119.74.
    The cost of AM723 is $63.75.

    Maybe it was an orientation thing, but they looked different on my drawings.

    Dollars talk. :)

    Cheers.
