Samsung Smart oven fuse burning

I have a Samsung that has microwave, convection oven, fry, grill and combinations of these.

About 2 months the fuse blew when trying to start. Replaced fuse and all worked again but started smelling a burnt smell. Well, the fuse blew again last night when starting microwave feature. I unplugged it last night and removed the top today. I saw no burnt wiring, but noticed a brown spot above the fuse on the inside of the top. Removed fuse and could smell burnt smell. Took fuse to another room and could still smell this.

I could replace the fuse again and see if it works, but don't want the burnt smell. I read it could be fan or not worth fixing. A replacement would be around $300 new.

I would like to send a picture of something that looks strange also.

Typically those fuses don't burn or smell.... as they are ceramic
Possibly the contacts that hold it in are loose. Feel free to post pictures....... How-to-insert-pictures

I have had this unplugged for 48 hours now. Even more by morning when I open back up. Should the HIGH power be drained by now?

There is a silver metal can type part with two leads on it. That's the capacitor where the charge would be. Typically the charge is gone in several hours. You can use a screwdriver to short the two contacts to insure the cap is discharged.
