    In case anyone wonders, I replaced the magnetron and it's functioning again. I partially disassembled the old one and there's nothing obviously wrong with it. I did not cut the tube apart however. I mainly wanted the magnets.
    Good job! Glad that the unit didn't go to the scrap yard in favor of a
    new one.

    Exactly. I hate throwing things out.

    Many times the replacement Megatron can be close to the cost of a new microwave. Especially those under $ 150 or so.

    Nah, this cost me just under $53USD shipped for an OEM part. As it's an over-the-range model, it's more expensive than the budget countertops.
