Why are the microwaves (over-the-oven) that I find in your weekly ads never available in my Orlando, Fl local stores? And, when I check for shipping, the cheapest is $52.00, which more than looses the gain from buying it on sale?

Sorry but its probably not worth it - consider cost of the part + cost of labour and you could probably buy a brand new machine.
Otherwise look out for a used machine from your local 2nd hand store, garage sale, refuse tip etc and get the part from that and do it yourself - MAKE SURE ITS UNPLUGGED.
If you remove the top cover of the microwave, about 10 screws, you will be able to locate the lamp/lamp socket. The lamp is available from your local appliance parts store for about 5 bucks. Unplug before opening.
I have kept the plate from one of the ones I had in the past. If I don't have room to keep something like this I take it to the local Salvation Army Thrift Store. That type of store if where I would look. Also if you have a local paper where you can place an ad for free, or a call in radio buy/sell store. If you live in a "big city", you may check smaller towns.

Take your round glass tray and plastic three wheeled hoop to a local Sears store, open up the microwaves on display, find the one that is still using something similar, deftly trade out yours for theirs. The new wheeled plastic hoop wheels are slightly bigger and the glass tray raised guides are a bit longer, since the switch no problems like I had. Don't get caught. They do not have those parts for sale at the local Sears store.
We had this problem with a new GE microwave in our last home.
GE service replaced fan assy,.AND added rubber foam around the motor,
Loud hum was reduced,but never did completely go away.
We learned to live with it/
Microwave fuses are usually located inside on the floor of the chassis behind the control panel or on the door switch mount between the switches.
If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
If you do need a new fuse, it will be a 15- or 20-amp ceramic fuse, and they are available at local home centers, home improvement stores, hardware stores, and appliance parts stores.
