The component in your hand appears to be a temperature sensor. Is that the pin that you're referring to?What was the fault with your microwave oven?
What was the purchase date of the appliance?

Was the popcorn contained in a bag?
I hope that you've following the necessary capacitor discharge procedure before working inside the appliance casing.
