My experience with microwave transformers is that all except the huge
industrial units have shunts. It is relatively easy to tell most of the
time. Look at the transformer and see if there are short core laminations
between the primary and secondary windings, if there is these are the
shunts. BTW be carefull putting any kind of metal in a microwave oven and
NEVER OPERATE A MICROVAVE OVEN MAGNATRON OUT SIDE IT'S SHIELDING!
