Question about Goldstar MV-1515 Microwave Oven
My daughter thought she set the kitchen timer on the microwave for 20 minutes but actually turned it on for that length of time. The plastic dinner plate cover we keep in there melted to a puddle and the microwave has no indication of power. Fuse is still good. Any chance there is a reset button or thermal protection diode that could be replaced or is this most likely done for ?
There are two thermal protectors which may be blown. If so, it will measure open (infinity) instead of closed (zero ohms).
One is located on the magnetron and one is on top of the oven cavity.
(There is also one located on the floor / base of the microwave but that one's not at issue.)
The magnetron thermal protector *may* be accessible by removing the control panel, but to access the oven cavity thermal protector, you will have to remove the oven from the wall.
If so, the installation instructions here are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
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.
