About 95% of the time it is the magnatron. If the microwave is under 5 years old that part is often covered under warranty. I would check your manual. If not the p/n is 8206335 and it's about $80 and fairly easy to install. I just looked and the magnatron is covered.
Labor to replace it would be about $125

SOURCE: Microwave does not heat/cook
Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:
- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

Testimonial: "Helpful. I now know what's wrong and think I probably can't fix it myself."
you either need a new h.v. capacitor or h.v. diode in the magnetron circuitry if you cant hear it cycle when it runs as in a low pitched hummmm when its drawing current to operate the magnetron tube, each part runs about $30 to $45 each,normally its the h.v. capacitor though

SOURCE: Microwave runs but won't heat
No reset button, there's nothing to reset in it. If you don't get heat and everything else is working that means that the magnetron tube isn't working.
The tube doesn't work because either it's defective ir it isn't powered. To check which you must open the oven and test the power to the magnetron.
Beware, if you don't know how to do that safely or you don't have a very good voltmeter then don't touch it, the very high tension inside can easily kill you.
