Is this something I could replace on my own? Do you think that I should just go out and get a new micro? Do you know what could have caused this? It is not even two years old?
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 6 years ago.
most likely it was cause by a power surge and you cna replace it yourself by removing the grill across the top and the screw holding the control panel on place, push up and set off and swap out
