it's also worth the very little effort. I've taken one apart to show you what you get.
PS: I'm only thirteen so don't be too critical
Step 1: Things you should know
1. Don't power up the magnetron. You will probably DIE
2. Don't use the transformer unless you know what you are doing
3. Be Safe
4.Take out any loose objects (the glass plate)
5. Have fun
The tools you will need are simple and everyone should have them.
A screwdriver and a pair of wire cutters.
It helps to have a drill with a screwdriver bit.
Step 3: Remove the cover
Step 4: Lets have a look inside
Step 5: The fan
This is good as a ventilation fan for the workshop of a cooling fan or something.
Step 6: The Cap and diodes
the reason there are the diodes and capacitor in the microwave is because the magnetron requires DC current to operate. These two components (cap. and diode) are used to convert the AC current from the transformer to DC.
Warning: DON'T USE THE CAPACITOR UNLESS YOU ARE QUALIFIED AND YOU HAVE LOTS OF ELECTRICAL EXPERIENCE
