Plastic Thing on Microwave Rotator Melted
So, two questions. First, with the microwave work satisfactorily without the black plastic piece. The rotating arm fits in a square metal piece and looks like it will still rotate.  Second, is this black plastic piece obtainable separately?

Sorry...

What plastic piece? The inside of mine looks the same as in your picture and it has been working fine since I got the coach. Yours should do the same.

Randy,

Just to put a bow on this one, we've decided the melted piece was a chunk of the rubber waffle mat, NOT a retainer part.  I'd made popcorn last night without realizing Karen had already put the mat below the the platter for travel today.

Thanks to...
