Well, how to fix your microwave let me first tell you how they work. So you will understand them and you would not be scared of them. At the back on the little sticker of information, it says 2450-megahertz, that is the frequency of the output of the radio waves that the magnetron, which is over here makes that cooks the food. Microwaves do not make any type of nuclear radiation or anything like that. All they are is like a radio transmitter that makes radio waves.
The radio wave frequency that they produce happens to be the natural frequency but water molecules like to vibrate at. So it increases the amplitude of the natural vibration of the molecules to a point where there is a lot of friction created while they are rubbing together and that heats the water or heats anything else that you put in there that has moisture in it or fat in it. Simple as that, there is no residual radiation when you shut them off and unless your door is very loose and floppy, which of course generally they are not there is no way microwaves can escape.
The middle tiny holes in the door are too small for the size of the wave form of a microwave to escape for that holes so that is why you can look in and not get cooked at the same time. Since microwaves are powerful radio energy of the electromagnetic spectrum, they can create voltage or electricity. The box is made out of a metal but the waves reflect the smooth surfaces and nothing happens if the sides do not become charged.
In the top of your microwave except for this one it is unusual usually is a plastic panel and then there is an aluminum propeller that is usually blown by air or a little tiny motor moves slowly and that is called the stirrer fan. The stirrer fan distributes the microwave surround the oven more evenly so that you do not get burn spots on your food and uncooked spots on the other. This one is using a side panel to distribute the microwaves inside the box with this plastic part here. There is door latches and inside the hole is several safety switches—to setup in such a way that if you stick something in the hole the microwave will not allow you to turn it on with the door open that is a good idea.
Now, I this guy respect his this microwave because my son wants it for his apartment. He is moving out and this one has got the crazy little screws with torque shape on them and the little pin sticking out the middle that prevents you from using an ordinary screwdriver to open them. Well, we give each one a tap with the hand not very hard, get a small flat ordinary screw driver, stick it in it goes beside the pin—see now I can unscrew it. You do not need to have that special tool. What a redneck genius invention, flat screwdriver.
Well, that is it. This is the magnetron it produces the radio waves, there is the transformer it takes a 110 vaults coming in and it has an output of about 1500 vaults.
