    Did magnetrons can be tested by simple ways? for example, using a
    Digital Multimeter
    How do I know if a magnetron is still good or defective?
    Is there an average measure o test between the magnetron's terminals
    That could be indicative of a failure?

    Invertor power supply or not, this is true. Test the filament, test for
    shorts, closely examine for physical problems like cracked magnets.
    Beyond that, ruling out other causes and then going for a replacement
    is about the only safe option.

    Agreed, either it will or will not function. Open filament or shorts to the
    case tend to be common failures, cracked or broken magnets due to
    overheating or mechanical stress. Continuity check across the filaments for
    low reading and from filament leads to case for open.
