It should be pretty straightforward to replace. You need to be sure the oven is unplugged.

It's easier to remove the wires while it's still screwed onto the oven. There may be locking tabs on the terminals, so don't force them! Pliers will help, but be gentle.

When you gets the wires off, unscrew the old one, put the new one on, and tighten the screws, then reinstall the wires.

SOURCE: how to replace thermal fuse/flame sensor

GE JES 1358 WK 01 microwave:
I recently had the same problem with a "flame sensor, " aka "thermal switch." My microwave is a "throwaway" model, very few repair parts available. I didn't want to replace it, so I did a little bit of research into thermal switches. I actually found one that would replace it for about $5 (plus $5 shipping).
Mine uses a "bimetal" thermal switch. There are three kinds of bimetal thermal switches: automatic reset, manual reset, and "one time use." The really interesting thing is this: the "one time use" resets (!!!) if the ambient temperature is below 0 degrees C, or 32 F (freezing); or, in some cases, -31 C, or about -22 F.
I put my "dead" flame sensor in the -10 F part of the freezer for about 20 minutes...
Checked it with my multimeter, and the once-dead sensor now read continuity (zero ohms)!!!
Reinstalled it in the microwave, and now it works fine.
So if you have a dead sensor- try freezing it...
