Question about Whirlpool Microwave Ovens
No! You would have to rebuild the entire microwave including the part that produces the radiation (magnetron or similar). Then you need to seal the unit to keep the radiation from leaking into the rest of your kitchen. The radiation leakage would a) result in much slower cooking and b) be dangerous since it could arc with any nearby metal including the stove. Buying a new microwave would be cheaper and safer.
A countertop microwave in a different part of the kitchen might be a better choice.
I wish that I could be more helpful.
(the major parts of the microwave die when they reach ~200 degrees; the housing won't melt until it is much hotter (if I remember the melting points of the common plastics used correctly).)
