    After repairing a microwave oven should I plug it in and test it to make sure
    everythings in working order before I reassemble it?
  2. What exactly can you test before you reassemble it? :)

    If you mean, put the cover back on, depends on what you want to test. Even
    if the magnetron is replaced, if properly installed there should be no
    radiation leakage from within the electronics bay.

  3. Agreed, if in question of your repair expertise let an expert do the job
    corectly the first time.
  4. However, keep in mind that the outer cover is the second line of defense.

    Unless the magnetron has been removed and improperly replaced, there
    should be insignificant microwave leakage even with the sheet metal
    cover removed.
