Hi JohnThanks for responding the model is DME555XE1
Since the control board doesn't function, it needs to be replaced. I've searched every parts dealer I can find, and they all say the part is obsolete at the factory, and none are available in the after sale market. The only course I can suggest is that you contact the factory customer service department at, to see if someone there can help you.Thank you for choosing JustAnswer.

Is that definitely the problem if so it might be cost effective to just replace it then as it would need a qualified person then to fit it presumably.
It just seems catastrophic to have done this just by trying to microwave food?
Replacing the oven is the better option, as you would spend time only to find it is unrepairable. The control board failure was from nothing you did.
