My husband burned the microwave by using alumifoil. It was working for a little while after that but next day, the microwave was completely off. He thought the thermostat was broken, ordered the part and replace it. It's fixed and working fine now. Someone mentioned that if you put the broken thermostat in the freezer, it will be reset and fixed. I tried that also. I wrap the thermostat and put it in the freezer for one day. Now it's working!! I didn't know about that before I ordered the part but it wasn't expensive at all. So now, we have extra thermostat!!
