    you want a low resistance one, so it can take low readings.

    please be extremely careful with microwaves mate they are the most dangerous item you will ever encounter in a domestic or arguably a commercial property! capacitors may hold about 2500V (5000V if operational) if not discharged and this will carry a hefty current enough to kill to the point no resuscitation will help - all relative to earth if still plugged in too :eek:

    Also I would suggest a tired magnetron could still show a normal resistance.. - only the heating coil has a resistance the rest is like a tuned aerial.
