It is located on the top of the chassis under the outer cover.

You will need to remove the oven from the wall and remove the outer cover to get to it.

Having the installation instructions really helps in this case, but if for some reason you don't have yours,
L.G. / Goldstar manuals can be downloaded here.

If yours' is not available there,
call 1-800-243-0000 (M-F, 7am-8pm CT, Sat 8-5 CT) and choose the appropriate prompt from the menu or visit here.

We have the service manual and parts manual for this model and have uploaded them to our site here and here to help you.

You will need the

The oven cavity thermostat is part # 6930W1A003D and it can be ordered at the Sears parts site.

My emerson microwave #mw8999rd shoots out fire from a silver piece of cardboard thats on the righthand inside of my microwave oven. whats with that?

There is electrical problem in your microwave heating circuit. This is a fire hazard and you should stop using this microwave and unplug from the outlet. This is not something you can fix and the fuse does not protect your system anymore. The best choice is to purchase a new one and throw this away.

I have a built-in AEG Microwave code MC166(0E?) My son unfortunately used the microwave as a timer so it was on for 30mins without anything in it. It now won't turn "on"; no light/clock...

What fuse did you change? The fuse on the wiring that leads to the microwave needs to be intact, then the fuse in the Microwave itself needs to be checked. Usually there is a plug where the microwave is plugged in, in the cabinet above the microwave, you can take another small appliance or a power tester to make sure power is available in the outlet where the microwave is plugged in. If the power is on at the outlet then you'll know that it is the microwave itself that has turned itself off for some reason. You can get manuals for these ovens at this website

My microwave does not have power anymore even if its plug to the current.

they have a small fuse situated on the circuit board inside the back of the microwave this sends the power to your microwave.

Decor DMO2420 Microwave caught on fire

Please write back with more details if this reply doesn't solve it.

(Such as, Was the fire inside the cooking cavity? Has the inside been cleaned since?)

There is a cavity temperature fuse located under the outer cover, on the top left side of the cooking cavity. It is rated at 150 degrees centigrade.

If there is a fire, that will open, killing all power to the unit.

A replacement can be found at a local appliance parts company.

Small fire in above range microwave, now completely dead.

It probably put too much heat in the "innards" of the microwave and probably opened the thermostat or thermal fuse located inside -either on the chassis of the microwave or or the magnetron. If you or a friend is handy and wants to check and replace it, it's not a hard job as long as you play it safe. It will look something like the attached photo. In my profile you can find a link to my site where you can find critical safety & disassembly tips. There will be numbers on the side indicating the temperature and you can take the old one to a local appliance parts store to get a new one. NOTE: The one for the hood fan will read open at room temperature, so don't confuse it with the other two thermostats, which will read closed at room temperature. Post back if you need more help.
