  2. **No.

    It's lucky you are an ER nurse. You'll reconise some faces when they
    wheel you in. That's if you're lucky. More likely, you'll kill yourself.
    Microwave ovens are potentially extremely dangerous items to work on.

    Well, put it back where you found it. If it's just a ground cable from the
    control board screw it to the chassis. The wire may have a "memory" and
    point you to where it was connected at first. Look at the grease and crap
    on the wires to see where it may have gone. Metal will be clean anyplace
    there was a screw.

    watch out for that filter cap- they need to be shorted before you touch
    anything. Don't trust a bleed resistor- they're just for keeping noise
    levels down when discharging those caps.
