1) Was the arcing caused by grease or by the normal failure mode of this product?
Thank you for this nice reply, iceman, Master of the Panasonic !
Thank you for the link to the 12 laws... should have read that before hehe !
1) Well, removing grease removed arcing between power board and a ground screw when the microwave is working, but yes I guess it's just delaying its death a few more years...
1) Getting a schematic for an inverter power board from a discontinued Panasonic microwave ? Pretty much impossible, isn't it ?
You have many valid points, but these damn large microwaves with integrated hood fan vents are several hundred $$$ expensive... so I may want to try replace that 5$ diode... I will not play with the magnetron or waveguide, don't worry, be happy !
As you said, if that doesn't work, it will be lost time, lost money and a lost cause, so I need to further think about it. That diode is probably not the only damaged part.
Agreed on the "flip the bird" part... ;-)
Thank you again for your insight !
