The loud noise and no heat means that the magnetron has failed. It the part that generates the microwaves that heat the food. When it fails it shorts out, causing the transformer to heat up. That is what was causing the burning smell. The cost of a replacement magnetron is around $130-150 range so it may not make sense to have it fixed.

I would open it up and look at the connections to see if any can be replaced. Look for any darkened or burned looking connectors related to the display panel. Hopefully you won't need to replace the display panel circuit board but if you do. I would look for the cheapest replacement starting with ebay parts, and search engines for that specific part. Sometimes there are microwaves of different models with the same parts too!

We would need to know the full model number from the tag in the cooking cavity or elsewhere on the microwave, such as the door frame, controller frame, etc.

Please post a new help request with that and more detailed symptoms, such as when it occurs.

check to see if the power from the wall socket is there. Plug in a lamp or somthing. If it works, then the microwave burned out an internal fuse, or curcuit board.

If the oven is dead - no display, no beeps when you press a pad on the keypad, and no inside light when you open the door - then I would suggest that you very the outlet is okay under load.

A hair dryer or toaster are the best ways the average DIYer can test the outlet under load.

If that's good, then your microwave may be dead due to a blown fuse, magnetron thermostat, or oven cavity thermostat.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If the fuse and magnetron thermostat are good, then you will have to take the oven down from the wall to get to and test the oven thermostat.

It is more than likely the magnetron is fried, to replace fuse! unplug microwave oven, remove top, "several screws" look to the right to the keypad control board, look down to a printed circuit board, clipped fuse should be near by, pop it out and replace with same current rating, assemble before testing, "lethal voltages present"
