I purchased one relay switch (there are three) took one out one by one and replced it with the new one and tested it each time until it worked. Super easy and saved me hundreds of dollars by doing this myself.

I noticed that the scorched and slightly melted plastic was above a little piece of what looked like cardboard, so I did a Google search for "flames in microwave" or something similar and found a link to a DIY repair site that mentioned a tear in the waveguide cover causing that problem. I ordered a replacement from PartSelect, received it in near-new condition, and replaced the old one with the new one in 5 seconds. I then called PartSelect to let them know that the new part had a couple of "wrinkles" in it that I was concerned might cause a problem down the line but that it seemed to be working OK for now. The nice person in customer service told me that I could use the part for the full year of the warranty and return it if a problem arose. I'm very satisfied with the experience!
