where is the other diode? the one that you pointed to is that the high voltage inverter diode? most likely to cause symptom since magnetron checked out ok.

the other Diode may be in the same location under the Transformer.

It uses (2) with that Inverter, unlike a "normal"  Transformer / Capacitor / Diode

Anything on the board could be bad ... the big Transistors on the Heatsink ...
