Microwave membrane substitution
Here’s another good one from the excellent website There, I Fixed It.com. Necessity is indeed sometimes the mother of invention, and while this may not look very elegant, it does seem to do the trick. But we still think it fits quite nicely in our Don’t-Try-This-At-Home series.
So, full marks for initiative on this one, but you have got to know what you are doing…

I bought this microwave oven for R$ 20 to fix it and use. Unfortunately, it is IMPOSSIBLE to find the keyboard membrane in Brazil. In USA, just the membrane costs $80!!! So I traced the keyboard circuit and made a new keyboard for it
