The thermal cut out is above the microwave cavity and costs about $25. Below is a link to the part.

CLICK HERE to see cavity thermal cut out

The bigger problem is that you must uninstall the entire microwave and remove the entire outer shell to access this part because it's below all the plastic mounted just above the microwave cavity on the left side toward the back. It's a lot of work to get to this part and replace it.
