REMOVING THE HIGH VOLTAGE RECTIFIER
AND THE HIGH VOLTAGE CAPACITOR
WARNING
Personal Injury Hazard
Disconnect from the electrical supply be-
fore servicing the unit. Failure to do so
could result in death or electrical shock.
CAUTION: Because of the weight and size of
the microwave oven, two people are required
to safely move and install it. Failure to do so
could result in personal injury.
1.
Disconnect the electrical supply to the
microwave oven.
2.
Refer to page 2-28 for accessing the high
voltage components.
WARNING
Personal Injury Hazard
Disconnect from power supply before ser-
vicing. Discharge the capacitor using a
20,000-ohm discharge resistor, or an insu-
lated plastic-handle screwdriver to short
across the capacitor terminals.
3.
Discharge the high-voltage capacitor.
4.
Unplug the wire connector going to the
line fuse.
5.
Remove the fan motor assembly from the
unit (see the illustration on page 2-19 for
the procedure).
Replacing The High Voltage Rectifier
1.
Unplug one end of the high voltage recti-
fier from the high voltage capacitor termi-
nal.
2.
Remove the mounting screw from the
capacitor strap flange at the other end of
the high voltage rectifier, and remove the
rectifier.
3.
Mount the eyelet on the end of the high
voltage rectifier lead to the capacitor strap
flange with its mounting screw.
4.
Reassemble the microwave oven.
Replacing The High Voltage Capacitor
1.
Unplug the leads going to the high volt-
age capacitor terminals.
2.
Remove the capacitor mounting strap
screw, then remove the old capacitor.
3.
Position the new high voltage capacitor
with the round blister (between the leads),
at the top, and loosely mount it to the
chassis with the capacitor mounting strap
and the mounting screw you removed in
the previous step. Make sure that the
flange on the strap is against the front
edge of the capacitor, and tighten the
screw just enough to hold the capacitor in
place.
4.
Reassemble the microwave oven.
