The magnetron will have overheated and will need to be replaced. Also, there is a thermal cutout mounted on or near the magnetron. It will need to be replaced, too. You can find exploded views and order parts here: What you'll need are the parts marked as reference numbers F73 & F74 (73 & 74) on diagram number 6. You might also be able to find cheaper substitute parts at a local applaince parts store. You can find critical safety and disassemby tips at our site via our FixYa listing:

Hello Robert, I am happy to assist you. Let's try resetting the microwave by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn the unit on. If the issue persists, then based on the symptoms you are describing, it could possibly a faulty fuse or the main control board. If the instructions above do not solve the problem, I am fairly confident that an authorized service agent will be able to restore your appliance to its normal operating condition. You can often locate a qualified service technician on the manufacturer website.

Light and timer work on microwave but oven does not start or turn. I had just finished microwaving a veggie and it worked fine.Now nothing. Made in 2004

The door interlock switch is most likely the problem (Probably the primary one). This switch goes bad quite offen. The switch or switches can be replaced. They are either in a cluster where all switches are replaced at once or are individual micro switches where each one is replaced individually

Shuts Off after 22 seconds

Time to buy a new microwave as it sounds as if the control panel is defective. A new control panel for this micro will run about 95 to 120 bucks + labor depending on where you buy it. I happen to like slightly burnt popcorn as well!! Nothing wrong with thats, as they say great minds think alike.
