I fixed our microwave oven a few years ago by disconnecting and re-connecting as many of the spade connectors as I could find. Failed 2 weeks, later. Unhooked spade connectors, again, and re-crimped all. Oven has been flawless since then.

Every few years our forced air furnace has stopped working. Same procedure of the few spade connectors is the remedy.

Suspect galvanic corrosion to be the culprit in both cases.

First thing I do, following failure of electrical/ic devices is to fiddle with all connectors. Most of the time it works.
