Question about Microwave Ovens
Chances are it has a bad connection at the magnetron, a bad high voltage diode, or a bad magnetron.
Any unusual noises?
Is it louder or quieter than usual?
Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
