Re: Micro not working
No most likely the little angel didn't ruin it. Remove the cabinet and you will find a 10 to 15 amp fuse connected in line with where the power cord comes into the back of the microwave. Be careful that you make sure power is off and be careful you don't touch the capacitor it could be charged. But the fuse just usually snaps in.

Could it perhaps be the chicken fat burning? I take it you are using convection only and not microwave power because if you use microwave power and do not contain the fat in with the chicken, the fat will be heated to its flash point by the microwaves and smoke heavilly. Hope this explained it for you.

Search the internet for “roast chicken recipe for microwave”
Here is one just in case you don’t find one: Microwave Roast Chicken 3 lbs. chicken 1 tsp. salt 4 tbsp. butter or margarine 1 tsp. paprika Instructions Melt butter in a custard cup in microwave. Mix paprika into melted butter. Wash chicken (reserve giblets, these are best cooked conventionally). Sprinkle inside of chicken with salt. Cover ends of legs, tail, and wings with small pieces of saran wrap or wax paper. Place trivet on inverted saucer or small casserole lid in 12 x 7 inch baking dish. Place chicken breast side down on saucers. Brush with butter. Cover with waxed paper. Cook 12 minutes. Remove wax paper or saran warp from legs, tail, and wings. Turn chicken breast side up and brush with butter. Cover with wax paper and cook 12 minutes more or until meat thermometer registers 180 degrees (temperature will increase to 195 degrees during standing).
DO NOT USE MEAT THERMOMETER IN OVEN WHEN COOKING!! Remove chicken from oven; cover with aluminum foil and let stand 15 to 20 minutes before carving. Note: For other weights of chicken, allow 8 minutes cooking time per pound.
