Yup, made in China and will probably last you a couple years if you are lucky.

True, but it will cook better than the 20 year old Litton too.

I have a 'Little Litton', made in the sixties, and it still works fine, in fact does popcorn (it has no turntable) better than new ones do. It has never had a repair other than replacing the light bulb every few years. However, it will give you a hernia when you pick it up! g>

It will? On what grounds do you say that?

I doubt it. In fact there will likely be virtually no difference in cooking ability. Microwave oven technology has been refined to the extent that there's very little difference from one unit to another, much like the "AA5" radio of the tube era, the outside may look different, but under the cover they're all remarkably similar.

If you have a big old oven in decent cosmetic condition and you still like the thing, seems like it's worth fixing, but then I'd rather fix anything than throw it away.

The old ones have a metal "fan" blade at the end of the waveguide which spins by the airflow from the magnetron cooling fan. This blade scatters the microwave energy to prevent hot spots. New ovens usually just have a turntable instead. It's debatable which is a better approach, I'm guessing the turntable must be cheaper to make though, either that or people just recognize it as a feature while the fan blade is hidden.

Well, assuming there is a need for parts, the 20 year old Litton is probably not cooking at all. Anything's better than that.

I would guess the turntable. I had several ovens without them, several with. The ones with always worked better in minimizing hot-spots than the ones without.

the older microwave ovens were built like a tank.

my best friend has a ancient commercial model and added a wind up turntable, says it heats much more evenly now,'

Didn't even have to be a 'name' brand. My 1982 Samsung entry-level table-top micro is still in use every day. No repairs ever, knock on stained plastic.

It is about 15 years old and is apart of a built in Thermador Microwave/Oven/Warming tray set. A repair man said apparently the magnatron is broken. However, nobody can seem to find the repair parts. I found this particular model in California but they won?t sell it to me $750 because it is out of their zip code area!!!

By removing the magnatron, it appears that it is made by Panasonic. Model

Amazingly Thermador themselves cannot tell me where to go for replacement

I removed the magantron and it appears that it is made by Panasonic. Model

Well, 'Thermador themselves' means some poor schnook with a warehouse parts stock list, he WON'T be informed about anything that isn't in stock.

That magnetron is $25-ish on eBay. And, many magnetrons would substitute for it, there's some standardization to footprint and electrode configurati ons. An independent repairman (not factory-authorized) who doesn't have a contra ctual bond that requires him to use only Thermador parts, might serve your needs better than the schnook with the list.

My mother in law has an original Amana RadarRange that still works! If it ever breaks, we will have to find out what museums want it.
