Microwave magnatron testing

Can anyone give me some help on how to diagnose a magnatron? My microwave made a loud humming noise and I smelled electrical smoke smell coming from the magnatron. Sounds like someone left the smoke out of it so it is probably defective.

You generally don't diagnose or fix a microwave with this sort of problem. You buy a new one.

Even if you could get a new magnetron, it would cost more than a new oven. Don't waste your time with the old one
