Are all microwave oven diodes not the same?
Okay so diodes depending on what brand they are "made for" such bs, range in price between $3 and $40
Are all microwave oven diodes not the same ? I'm looking at replacing one in a 900watt and a 1000 watt microwave oven. Can someone advise on specs ? Price variance due to simply parts sellers markup?
What the big deal with capacitor discharge and voltage? Obviously a insulated screwdriver or insulated needle nose pliers touched to bridge negative and positive will discharge the capacitor. Obviously appliance is unplugged and not running. There is more technical way to discharge capacitors but you still have to short the +- to be sure. Most people just short out across terminals.
Testing components directly has always been the way to go. Guessing based on current draw seems like looking for water with a divining rod . I'm sure it works for those thr do it. Quick diagnosis shortcuts are always appreciated
