I wouldn't do it. If at all it'll be just a temporary fix.

But as long as you don't want to use the oven for food anymore, you could give it a try, because it'll be contaminated by some chemicals from the circuit boards.

Works perfectly.

Yes it's a temporary fix, but the last temporary fix lasted eighteen months, and the thing only lasted just over three years in the first place.

Bear in mind, without the fix, it's scrap plastic. A new Mobo is £600 as it's a nice multimedia machine. This failure is quite common with them, so a spare of flebay is likely to be the same.

What chemicals are you expecting to 'contaminate' the oven? Bearing in mind the food never touches the oven itself, I'm not expecting to be poisoned anytime soon. At least the oven is more subtle than the blowtorch I used last time!
