Question about Microwave Ovens
first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a
minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.
If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour.
Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it and please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.
Otherwise, you may have a bad keypad or circuit board, which can usually be reasonably repaired.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

The magnetron may have either failed or
is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution. I suspect the magnetron and diode.
Hope that helps.
