Yes, I am amazed at the prices on microwaves. Some of them sell
for $30 around here. Small, of course, but probably reliable. They
kind of have me over a barrel here because this is an over-the-range
unit and those are much more expensive to replace (about $300, it
seems). I may just put it back together for cosmetic reasons and
get the wife a counter top unit.
This is off topic but I wonder if anyone knows if there is anything
to the claims made for the newer inverter designs. I think I know
what they have done--for 50% power, instead of turning on full blast
with a 50% duty cycle like the line operated HV transformer type
does, they actually reduce the power and keep it on 100% of the
time. But is it really better????
Anyway, thanks for the info. I understand these things a little
