A friend thinks there was aluminum in his food container. Last week his new ( < 1year) microwave stopped working. Yesterday, I checked and replaced the fuse 20A 250V. The display, lights and fan came on. When checking for heat using the popcorn button, the fuse immediately blew. I did not replace the fuse because of suspicion of another problem.

Not finding this model number. Is this an OTR (over the range)? If so -- Should be in warranty.
We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

If you do call for warranty service, do not mention the aluminum plate... if you do, collect call...
It is never a bad thing to leave it to the professionals. Inexperience can lead to more damage or risk of injury. You can always call A&E Factory Service (1-800-905-9505), Sears(1-800-469-4663), or local service man you can trust (servicemagic.com).
