Microwave Problems

So the entire family was down for the holiday break and were cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Things were baking, and sizzling, the microwave was going... Here is where the problem begins. I hear these screams of, "Where is the fire extinguisher!", "Turn it off! Turn it off!", "Its still on fire!". I come into the kitchen to find this mess. Somehow the microwave caught on fire. Upon further investigation, it seems the little ring that holds the carousel, exploded and maybe the metal inside began to arc.
This was only a few weeks after our dishwasher broke. At least it was under warranty. If it hadn't, it would have been a 300 bill to fix it. We called Whirlpool, to see if they would come in and fix our microwave. It wasn't under warranty. But they did send out a rep to look at it. The rep has NEVER seen anything like this before, so he was going to see what kind of strings he could pull. Whirlpool called us back and said that they would sell us a prorated microwave, with installation the grand total would be 95 dollars! It is even going to be white, just like anna always wanted.
