Question about Sharp Microwave Ovens
Had microwave on for 58 minutes when I thought I just had the timer on. Part of plastic vent melted. Is it safe to try the microwave? How do I know if the magnetron is gone?

You should remove or replace the melted part and try the oven with a cup full of water in it.
If it arcs & sparks, the magnetron and/or waveguide may be damaged.
If it runs fine, you may get lucky and only have to replace the part that melted.
