Hello jeresmer... the timer merely counts doiwn the time the microwave is supposed to be active however it does not necessarily mean the microwave is operating properly. It is possible you have a bad magnetron, hv capacitor or filamsnt transformer ( among other things) that may be wrong ..How old is the microwave and which model is it?

If your microwave runs, but doesn'theat your food, verify that you have selected a cooking setting. You mayaccidentally set the timer. Test the magnetron by placing 1 cup of water in themicrowave and heating the water for three minutes. If the water doesn't heat,your magnetron is dead.

No... you are not in a microwave induced time warp...
Your microwave oven needs a "reboot". The same thing happened to me.
Unplug your microwave oven, wait about a minute (more or less), plug it back in. Try setting/running your kitchen timer, boil water, etc. Your timer software on the microwave should be reset.
