Customer Question
E microwave shot off...

E microwave shot off after it burned some food in it . I’m trying to find a reset button. This is mounted over the stove. Where is the reset button?

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of the appliance? And has it done this before?

This’ll is Amara ge microwave

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If I don’t have to dismantle it.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

That’s it I hope

Unfortunately there is no reset. If the microwave died because food was burnt inside, it means your cavity thermal fuse failed. There is a thermal cut out mounted above the microwave cavity in case a fire occurs or the microwave gets too hot. Either way, you'll need to uninstall the microwave, remove the entire outer shell to see the dime sized round thermal cutout on top of the microwave. Replace the cavity thermal fuse and you should be good to go again.
