The flyback transformer in a TV puts out about 20kv at a low (5 ma?) current and is driven by perhaps 15000 cycle input. The microwave transformer is 60 cycle and puts out about 2000 VAC at about one half amp. So... very different.

A tv transformer is a flyback. A microwave transformer is regular one.

And I suppose that you haven't that slightest clue as to what that means.
