My Samsung microwave died last March. It makes sparks from the magnetron. I tried a bit to see if I could get a new one, but it’s annoyingly difficult, since the magnetron is half the cost of the unit.
I’d really like to buy a microwave not-made-in-China. Sharp is reported to make them in Japan, assemble them in the USA.
But, I can not find a store that sells them. I’d really like to touch one before I buy it.
