This is a 1988 vintage microwave oven. I'm very relieved to have parts still available. The stirrer drive belt tore. I suspect dry rot, as I did this exact repair back in 2005.You simply remove the cover, replace the belt [easy] on top, and replace the blown fuse. While the oven cover is off blow out all accumulated dust and wipe/clean all areas that have a build up of dirt/crud. I purchased this microwave oven in 1988 and is very dependable.
