Question about Microwave Ovens
So what happen was, there was tinfoil and there was a small fire cooked within the microwave...anyway. it wouldn't turn on after that.
I'll proceed on the assumption that the model number posted by "Guest" is being posted by "clearlymaybe".
Yes, I'd say the oven cavity TCO (flame sensor) probably got tripped by the heat of the fire.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
Accessing some components (such as the oven cavity TCO) for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.
If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
