I also bombed out on locating a downloadable manual but the hardcopy is available on eBay here:

The efficiency of microwave oven is ~ 65% so if you will check the back of your unit for the AC line (input power) consumed, you can easily calculate the usable 'cooking' power available.

i.e. If the label states: 115 VAC 10 Amp(eres), this would amount to 10 X 115 = 1150 X .65 = ~ 740 watts delivered to the food.

The magnetrons do age (if not fail first) and their emissions fall with progressive use so a 10 year-old oven won't still give you that ~65% but substantially less.

The main fuse in the microwave oven has blown, sometimes you can change it without a problem, but normally I find the door switch becomes defective causing the fuse to open. If you decide to service it yourself be very careful of dangerous high voltages that are present.
