The magnetron is on its way! The control however that had a burn spot on side of capacitor was on the other brd in front right corner when looking at the microwave, not inverter brd. Hoping to b just a flaw in craftsmen ship, not a problem? We'll see thanks everyone for the help!!! You guys ROCK

Unfortunately this part was on back order threw R.Clinic! But luckily another local parts distributor had mag. in stock!!! Lady was freaking out about price and thanksgiving around the corner! And the fact that she has a three yr old broke 1000.00 dollar microwave!!!

$1,000 microwave oven? Really? Who actually cooks a full meal in a microwave oven? I thought the Sharp drawer microwave oven was a bad idea, but this one takes the cake.
