This appliance generates very high voltage to produce the waves. If you are unlucky enough to get a shock, it can be fatal! However, it is possible to carry out certain repairs by scrupulously observing the following safety instructions. Rule 1: Never use a multimeter with the device plugged in: the high voltage of the device will damage the tester. Rule 2: Even when the device is unplugged, you can get an electric shock! Avoid this by unplugging your device 24 hours before any manipulation so that it discharges completely. Also make sure you short-circuit the capacitor with an insulated clamp as explained in this article.
