Bad wire connections on mag tube not letting the low 3 volts for the heating of the mag filiment to get it firing.

Quite a few years ago when I worked in a shop and worked on microwaves, I seemed to run into this alot on the GE's but also a few times in other brands also.

The fix I finally found was to actually solder the hi-voltage magtube leads so that the wire and spade connector have a solid bond, (with a solder iron heat the connector where it is crimped to the hi-voltage lead wires and flow a little solder into the crimp joint).
