Even if the turntable isn't turning, the oven should still heat the food but it will be uneven cooking. I would suggest that the unit is not "microwaving" This is usually the high voltage capacitor, fuse or diode failure. You will need knowledge of how microwave ovens work and specialist tools to test these. If you don't, I would suggest you get a tech who does. There are extremely high voltages in microwave ovens.
Most microwave ovens have a "stirrer" blade run by a small pancake motor to help avoid standing waves and hot spots inside the microwave cavity. And most modern microwave ovens have a turntable to turn the food, to provide even more even-distribution of heating.
No heat means the magnetron circuit has failed. It is the part that generates the microwaves to heat the food. Usually not worth fixing since the magnetron costs nearly as much as a new oven. To diagnose, if the oven is on, you will hear a loud buzzing sound if the magnetron is shorted.
I have not solved my problem,I have decided to buy a new microwave rather than pay for this amount of money on a telephone advice when you have said on your site that it is free.I will also spend further amount of money, to call an electrician after your advice,so I will be better of buying a new one.
