    "I do with you all the luck in your repair."

    So, essentially, your leaving it to myself.

    "should be providing technical details that make it sound like you know what you are getting into instead of following a do-it-yourself guide on instructables."

    As stated, this was purely to see if it was a simple or moderately simple fix.

    We don't know.

    Have you provided the requested pictures yet?

    If you don't fix your attitude this thread will get closed too. You have completely misinterpreted Gryd3's comments.

    Most of us are here because we want to help people. We are not paid.

    People of all levels of skill enquire about fixing things. We have made a conscious decision to emphasise safety when people are operating on equipment that can be dangerous.

    Microwave ovens are probably the most dangerous household device to work on. They differ from circular saws in three major ways:
    1. Rather than taking your fingers off, they can kill you.
    2. The presence of danger is not accompanied by sound or the appearance of motion,
    3. Removing power does not necessarily remove the danger.
    We have no idea what safety precautions you have taken, no images of anything other than you holding a magnetron which is apparently still in circuit, and no indication from you that you are familiar with or qualified in dealing with circuits having extremely high voltages at high power levels.

    Consequently, is is highly likely that people responding to you will pepper their responses with precautionary statements.

    In addition to this, people may ask for additional information. Whether or not you think it's needed, if multiple people ask for it, there's probably a good reason.

    In your case, images of the other electronics will directly assist us in answering your question. In the absence of them, we can do nothing.

    Stating that my "attitude" 'has' a problem that needs to be fixed. .. Rather rude on your part.

    I disagree.

    Neither are most of the users on every other forum site... Your statement has little relevancy.


    I am no longer interested in the closure of this, too much hostility.

    not really .... you need to learn the truth ... if it hurts ... it may make you re-evaluate you life interactions with others

    again, look at your own attitude
