check power in and out of the noise filter pcb.
You will need to most likely drop the microwave remove the outer wrapper to get to the fuses.

Check the thermal cutouts as well. Looks like this unit has 4 of them, and 2 of them DO NOT reset themselves.

I found that the H V Capacitor is bad. Waiting for part and will then look for any further problems. Thanks for the feedback.

that's not what you said was the problem.
You said it didn't light up or power up. How did you find out the Cap was bad?
