Good Morning

Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for your question. My name is***** am an expert from Germany and have been working as an equipment technician for 19 years. I work with a language translation program and I would be very grateful for your understanding.
I'm sorry I can't make a call, but another expert can do it for you if you want. I will try to help you as best I can via chat.
I am sorry that you faced this problem!

The error message EE2 means that the lower magnetron MG2 is no longer working.

This can have the following causes:

- Defect of the MG2 magnetron below
- Defect of the HV transformer T1 (rear)
- Defect of the HV rectifier unit
- Break in the HV wiring harness
- Defective HV capacitor C2
- Defective door bolt switch SW2
- Defective fuse F2
- Defective magnetron thermal fuse TF2
- Defective high voltage fuse F4
- Defective high voltage fuse F5
- Defective magnetron thermistor (above) TH1
- Defective magnetron thermistor (below) TH2
- Defective relay RY-4

These components must all be checked by a service technician by measuring and replaced in the event of a defect. But you can do this first to perform a reset. Switch off the power supply via the circuit breaker or wall for at least 15 minutes. Then switch on the power supply for 1 minute. And then immediately switch off the power supply again. Then switch it on and try it out.

Please feel free to continue this topic if you have any further questions. I would be very happy to help you!
Kind regards,
