This is either the magnetron , high voltage capacitor or high voltage diode that has failed and will need replacing
hope this info is at least worth a fixya , since for sure one of these has failed and testing to find out which one and replacing it will fix the heating up problem, and this is a common fix and most likely the magnetron will need to be replaced , magnetron cost around $100

Microwave popped and now does not heat


Okay, first we need to separate the situations. You were boiling water on the stove and had the range hood fan running to **** up the steam. Then you put something in the microwave to heat and you heard a pop and then zip-o.

The water on the stove has nothing to do with the situation, the fan you turn on is not part of the microwave, so it has nothing to do with the microwave.

The pop you heard and then the humming suggests the magnetron failed. You said you found a blow fuse and replaced it and still nothing, right? The magnetron is the most likely culprit...I would think it is safe to say that the magnetron shorted and drew enough current to blow the fuse.

Replace the magnetron and if that doesn't work, let me know here. Good Luck!
