We purchased a GE Spacemaker Microwave Oven on 02/13/2013 from Amazon.com. Yesterday while cooking a potato in this unit, the entire inside burst into flames and the flames were about to engulf the framework around the unit. Luckily my wife saw what was going on and I grabbed a fire extinguisher and put it out.
