Microwave ovens have a special Magntron fuse that is inside the body of the microwave its much bigger than a normal fuse, if its blown the microwave wont work.

Does the turntable rotate? If everything but this works (except no heat), you probably have a bad door switch. Here's a discussion of what's involved in replacing it: http://www.fixya.com/support/t267796-kenmore_microwave_hood_combination_over
If the turntable does rotate, I'd suspect a more significant failure, such as the transformer, capacitor, or magnetron. If it's any of these, it's time to replace the unit.

Since it sounds louder than before, it is probably a bad high voltage diode or magnetron.
If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:
Sears may send you a magnetron to install yourself since it's under warranty. For that or warranty service, contact Sears at http://www.sears.com.
You can save about $75 by taking it to the shop yourself, as opposed to an in-home service call.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
