    Can you show the circuit with the crystal you are asking about?
    The magnetron tube in a microwave is a tuned oscillator generating microwaves, but the major tuning element is a properly sized cavity.

    It most likely is the oscillator for the microprocessor, both for its normal operation and for the clock/timer.
