We recently had a lightening storm and I am pretty sure

Hi, We recently had a lightening storm and I am pretty sure lightening is the cause of my oven going down. The control board that is wired into the control panel was melted.... literally and fire marks around the terminal (I guess is what it is called) wire going into the oven and the insulation also had fire marks on it... The control panel light is on but nothing else is working. With the fire marks I'm a bit concerned about fixing it (if it is worth it) and putting it back in the house. Thank you so much for your help.

Model #PEB2060SM2SS GE Microwave. No Heat I have run the

Model #PEB2060SM2SS GE Microwave. No Heat I have run the Control Flow sheet ( came with the MW wiring diagram ) and the control Panel works perfectly. The MW is 3 years old and the Magnetron failed and was replaced by a GE repair person under warranty just inside the mfg 1 yr warranty period. Other online sites suggest that failure of the Diode is highly likely. They all caution about attempting to DIY because of high voltage. I am no electrician but am intelligent enough to follow directions and know enough to unplug and discharge the capacitor . However I don't know how to safely discharge the capacitor. Given the information that I have provided do you feel that you can make a definitive diagnosis and instruct me as to how to fix the MW?
