Question about GE JES1358 Microwave Oven
My wife was cooking a "baked potato" in our microwave. She had placed it on a paper plate on the turntable. She went outside for awhile to take care of what she was cooking on the grill. When I went to the kitchen, the room was full of smoke and the paper plate as well as the potato was we burnt black. Since then the microwave has not worked. Is there any hope for the microwave? I would like to fix it myself if there is any hope for it.
The unit has a flame sensor, called the cavity thermal cutout or thermostat. Chances are yours is bad now due to the fire. But it may also be the thermal cutout or thermostat.
