Question Is our microwave safe to use or does it need repair after fire?
Model Number: IMH15XRS   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 1 - 5 years

We had a small fire in our microwave after heating a sandwich with some hidden tinfoil. With the exception of some scorch marks, the unit is mostly OK. The only damage is that the plastic disc on the roof of the microwave has melted along some of the edges. You can see a picture of the damage here.

Is this microwave safe to use? Is the damage to the plastic disc cosmetic or will that cause it to malfunction? If it's only cosmetic, we're fine with the way it looks, but we haven't used it since the accident because we don't want to make the situation worse or expose ourself to leaking microwaves! I'd appreciate your advice!
