Default oster microwave wiring repair question
Model Number: otm1101gbs   Brand: -other-   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Microwave started smelling like burnt plastic/rubber then shut-off itself while heating a mug of coffee. After this, the unit would not power back on (also tested the outlet and the microwave in other wall outlets). I took the outer cover off of it and saw a wire/connection had burnt out towards the top of the unit (see 3 pictures linked below).

I'm somewhat handy with wood & construction, but know little about electronics repair. I was wondering if this is something that I could fix myself - and if I did (or tried to fix it) is it most likely worthwhile to try - as opposed to buying a new one. Also, could I buy generic replacement parts or would I have to order them from Oster. And finally, how much would/should a local repair shop charge to fix this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
