  • The world’s smallest schematic
  • My wife cooked the microwave - she thought is was on Timer mode, but no, this was an empty full power mistake. She told me all the digital numbers just stopped working when I got home. Now I'm a Civil Engineer and an electronics wannabe engineer. I know a thing or two about electronics and thought I'd open 'er up and see if I could find the crispy part. Opening up was not too difficult, but what to my surprise, a full schematic was glued to the inside of the cover. In a few minutes I had identified an unmarked part that turned out to be an over-temperature sensor. I ordered the new part, along with a micro wave detector to check my work, and voila! It works again!
