I discharged the capacitor in my Kenmore microwave and replace the magnetron. I cannot remember which magnetron terminal the red and white wires attach to.

In the future, may I suggest you take pictures prior to disassembly, trust me even if you don't review them 9 out of 10 times the one time you need them they are invaluable... And free in today's digital age, them Polaroids used to get expensive...

As for helping you out you need to find the wiring diagram or service manual for your microwave and figure it out... Maybe a call to the parts supplier you obtained the replacement part from?

Or, is there a schematic glued to the inside chassis of the microwave. Sears is
usually pretty good about that.

Good point, also look for a plastic pouch on the back/bottom that might contain the schematic...
