Continuity checks showed the flame sensor was open. Schematic notes it opens at 217 degrees and closes at 30 degrees. Removed sensor and placed in freezer for twenty minutes. Tested sensor and it was now closed, reinstalled and microwave worked normally. Ordered new sensor in case the original is operating at too low a temperature.
