MICROWAVE OVEN
SERVICE MANUAL
MODEL: MB-4342W
MH-6342W
CAUTION
BEFORE SERVICING THE UNIT, READ THE
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS IN THIS MANUAL.
CIRCUIT DESCRIPTION
GENERAL DETAILS
• The low voltage transformer supplies the necessary
voltage to the micom controller when power cord is
plugged in.
• When the door is closed, the primary switch is ON, the
secondary switch is ON, and  the monitor switch opens
(contact COM and NO).
WHEN SELECTING COOKING POWER
LEVEL AND TIME
• The micom controller memorizes the function you set.
• The time you set appears in the display window.
• Each indicator light turns on to indicate that the stage
has been set.
WHEN TOUCHING THE START PAD
• The coil of the relay is energized by the micom
controller.
• Power input is supplied to the high voltage transformer
through the fuse to the primary switch and relay 2.
• Turntable rotates.
• The fan motor rotates and cools the magnetron by
blowing the air (coming from the intake on the
baseplate).
• The air is also directed into the oven to exhaust the
vapor in the oven through the upper plate.
• Cooking time starts counting down.
• 3.2 volts AC is generated from the filament winding of
the high voltage transformer. This 3.2 volts is applied to
the magnetron to heat the magnetron filament through
two noise-preventing choke coils.
• A high voltage of approximately 2100 volts AC is
generated in the secondary of the high voltage
transformer which is increased by the action of the high
voltage diode and charging of the high voltage
capacitor.
• The negative 4,000 Volts DC is applied to the filament
of the magnetron.
WHEN THE OVEN IS SET AT ANY LEVEL
EXCEPT MAXIMUM.
• The micom controller controls the ON-OFF time of 
relay 2 by the applied signal to vary the average output 
power of microwave oven as POWER LEVEL. 
(refer to page 1-1)
WHEN THE DOOR IS OPENED DURING
COOKING
• Both the primary switch and relay 2 are cut off primary
winding voltage of the high voltage transformer.
• ON-OFF of relay 2 is coupled electrically with opening
and closing of the secondary switch.
• When the door is opened, the secondary switch is
opened and when the door is closed, the secondary
switch is closed.
• The cooking time stops counting down.
• Relay stops functioning.
• As the door is opened, if the contact of primary switch
and relay 2 and/or secondary switch fails to open, the
fuse opens due to the large current surge caused by
the monitor switch activation, which in turn stops
magnetron oscillation.
WHEN TOUCHING THE START KEY
WITH THE GRILL COOKING FUNCTION
SELECTED
• The contacts of the primary switch and the secondary
switch close the circuit.
• A.C. voltage is applied to the grill heater through grill
thermostat as shown by the solid line.
• Turntable rotates.
• The fan motor rotates.
• The air is also directed into the oven to exhaust the
vapor in the oven through the base plate and upper
plate.

CAUTIONS
• Be sure to check microwave leakage prior to
servicing the oven if the oven is operative prior to
servicing.
• The service personnel should inform the
manufacture importer, or assembler of any
certified oven unit found to have a microwave
emission level in excess of 5 mW/cm
2
and should
repair any unit found to have excessive emission levels
at no cost to the owner and should ascertain the cause
of the excessive leakage. The service personnel
should instruct the owner not to use the unit until the
oven has been brought into compliance.
• If the oven operates with the door open, the service
personnel should:
- Tell the user not to operate the oven.
- Contact the manufacturer. 
• The service personnel should check all surface and
vent openings for microwave leakage.
• Check for microwave leakage after every servicing.
The power density of the microwave radiation leakage
emitted by the microwave oven should not exceed 
4 mW/cm
2
. Always start measuring of an unknown field
to assure safety for operating personnel from radiation
leakage.
MEASURING MICROWAVE ENERGY
LEAKAGE
• Pour 275±15cc of 20±5°C(68±9°F) water in a beaker
which is graduated to 600 cc, and place the beaker
on the center of the turntable.
• Set the energy leakage monitor to 2,450 MHz and
use it following the manufacturer's recommended
test procedure to assure correct result.
• When measuring the leakage, always use the 2-
inch (5cm) spacer supplied with the probe.
• Operate the oven at its maximum output.
• Measure the microwave radiation using and
electromagnetic radiation monitor by holding the
probe perpendicular to the surface being measured
Move probe along shaded area
Probe scanning speed
Less than 2.5 cm/sec
( 1in/sec)

MEASUREMENT WITH OUTER CASE
REMOVED
• When you replace the magnetron, measure for
microwave energy leakage before the outer case is
installed and after all necessary components are
replaced or adjusted.
Special care should be taken in measuring the
following parts. (Circled area of below Fig.)
- Around the magnetron
- The waveguide
MEASUREMENT WITH A FULLY
ASSEMBLED OVEN
• After all components, including the outer case, are fully
assembled, measure for microwave energy leakage
around the door viewing window, the exhaust opening,
and air inlet openings.
• Microwave energy leakage must not exceed the values
prescribed below.
NOTE: Leakage with the outer case removedless than
5 mW/cm.sq. Leakage for a fully assembled
oven (Before the latch switch (primary) is
interrupted) with the door in a slightly opened
position-less than 2 mW/cm.sq.
NOTES WHEN MEASURING
• Do not  exceed meter full scale deflection.
• The test probe must be removed no faster than  
1 inch/sec (2.5 cm/sec) along the shaded area,
otherwise a false reading may result.
• The test probe must be held with the grip portion of the
handle.
A false reading may result if the operator's hand is
between the handle and the probe.
• When testing near a corner of the door, keep the probe
perpendicular to the surface making sure the probe
horizontally along the oven surface, this may possibly
cause probe damage.
RECORD KEEPING AND NOTIFICATION
AFTER MEASUREMENT
• After adjustment and repair of any microwave energy
interruption or microwave energy blocking device,
record the measured values for future reference. Also
enter the information on the service invoice.
• The microwave energy leakage should not be more
than 4 mW/cm.sq. after determining that all parts are in
good condition, functioning properly and genuine
replacement parts which are listed in this manual have
been used.
• At least once a year, have the electromagnetic energy
leakage monitor checked for calibration by its
manufacturer.
