Question about Microwave Ovens
You may have (probably) put something in there that wouldn't chop or grind, and the blade wasn't able to turn. When this occurs, a safety feature called a 'shear pin' breaks. The shear pin passes through on side of the base of the blade, through the motor shaft, and out the other side of the base of the blade. The pieces of the shear pin have to be removed, and replaced with a new pin. A common roll pin of the appropriate diameter should do the trick. Bear in mind the shear pin is a 'pressed fit', so removal of the old bits may be difficult. But it can be done.
