It shows that is there is some direct short circuit in the product if you are technical person then only check one by one HT diode,HT capacitor and finally HT transformer & megnatron.

I would be sure to check the microwave's outlet under a load.
One good way is to use a toaster or hair dryer for about a minute to see if they run at full power and run without their heating elements dimming.
If the power at the outlet is steady, I would suggest a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.
If it still fails to heat properly, I would say you have a failing magnetron, and it would just be a coincidence that the failure began after the new wiring was installed.
If you need to order the magnetron, Sears sells it for $73.13, but you can get it for $41.84 here.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it.
Door switch If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.

this could be caused by a shorted diode or bad transformer in the unit itself, diodes are generally inexpensive repairs and are fairly easy to perform. Transformers are quite a bit more expensive and can be more difficult to replace. The diode is the most common problem. To test the diode you can either use a ohm meter or a "AA" battery, short piece of wire or rolled up alluminum foil, scotch tape and a flashlight light bulb, to use the bulb technique simply dismantle the flashlight until you can easily access the 2 connectors of the bulb (one located at the bottom of the bulb and the other being the metal bulb casing) then take the twisted up alluminum foil and tape one end to one end of the battery ensuring the is a good connection, then tape the other end of the alluminum foil to the metal casing of the light bulb, after these steps have been performed, remove the diode from the microwave completely so all u have in your hands is the diode (they are usually connected with a flat terminal and a screw), if 2 identical flat terminals are used, be sure to make a small diagram of how the diode came out (if the white line on the diode is connected to the microwave transformer, be sure to install it the same way, improper installation can cause more damage!) now that you have the diode out simply touch one end of the diode to the battery and the other end to the untaped connector of the light bulb, if the light comes on, reverse the diode, if the light is still on when reversed the diode is short, if the light doesn't come on when reversed the diode is fine, current will only pass one way through a good diode and will pass through both directions if its bad, and in very rare cases the diode will not conduct in any direction. if the diode is fine I would have to suggest taking it into a service center or considder buying a new one as other parts can be in the $70-$160 range. hope this helps.

If you find the fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped, unplug everything from the circuit to which the microwave is connected (keep in mind that other outlets may be fed from the same circuit). Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the same thing happens again, you have a problem with the outlet or other wiring on the same branch circuit. If plugging in the microwave causes the fuse to blow or circuit breaker to trip immediately, there is a short circuit in the power cord or elsewhere.
The microwave oven may be powered from a GFCI outlet or downstream of one and the GFCI may have tripped. (Removing a broken oven lamp has been known to happen.) The GFCI outlet may not be in an obvious location but first check the countertop outlets. The tripped GFCI could be in the garage or almost anywhere else! Pushing the RESET button may be all that's needed.
Next, try to set the clock. With some ovens the screen will be totally blank following a power outage - there may be nothing wrong with it. Furthermore, some ovens will not allow you perform any cooking related actions until the clock is set to a valid time.
Assuming these are not your problems, a fuse has probably blown although a dead controller is a possibility.
While you can do some repairs on your microwave, what you don't know can kill you... even on an unplugged microwave, so make sure you understand the dangers and how to reduce them before you try anything inside a microwave. If you want to do more yourself, go to the link at the top of this post.
