Anyway, recently my sisters microwave bit the dust and was too expensive to fix, which means I get to tear apart another unsuspecting household appliance, and this time I thought I'd document it.
This will be pretty simple. I'm not going to open up the microwave, just pry the door open. There can be high voltages on the capacitors in the microwave for a long time even after being unplugged, and there can be hazardous chemicals in the magnetron inside, so if you are going to pull it apart, be careful.

|The leftovers. These will be disposed of in e-waste|
