Sounds like the magnetron has failed. There are some high voltage circuits that feed the magnetron and you can potentially get hurt if you don't know what you are doing. Would recommend you have it serviced by a professional if you want it fixed, otherwise look for a new one since the cost of repair can come close to the price of a new microwave oven.

My microwave is working but the turn table is not turning

next time send the brand name and model number,when you go to work on a micro wave unplug it,even if you change a bulb on it,i've seen people change the bulb without unplugging it and cook the computer board,on the bottom there's a motor that turns thee turn table,drop the bottom panel of the micro wave usually like 6 to 9 screws and on some there could be an access panel just for the motor,unplug the old motor and remove screw or screws,pop off the cover inside the microwave where the glass turn table sits on and,put the new motor in and put it back the same way you took it apart,it's pretty easy to do.go here put your model number in and find part number

Dead ge microwave

magnetrons work only when the unit is cooking
it smells like an insulation from overheating wire so could be a fuse and failing transformer
take it in for a proper diagnosis and quote but if it is over 2 years old the cost to repair could be more than a replacement unit

Where can a person buy the wave guide for a Oster Microwave Model # OGB61101

The quickest and cheapest fix would be to find a local appliance parts dealer and tell them you want some wave guide cover mica material. ( 10"X12") about $10.00)
Take your old one off and trace around it on the new material. Scissors will do most of the job. A razor knife will make the sharper corners and turns. Take your time with the knife work and make many scores instead of trying for one cut, and there will be no blood. There will be enough material left over for the next time you need it. (Tape it to the back or bottom of the unit?)

That should get you cookin'.
