Not many people will repair microwaves because they are mostly an uneconomical repair when the magnatron or diode goes.it is best,cheaper and safer to replace.

I am assuming that all the heat funtions defrost included do not work.
This can be a few things first you need to open the cover(make sure the unit is unplugged) then on the controll panell side you will find a pc board locate the fuse on the board and test ,reolace if blown ,if this does not solve your problem then look on the base plate there you will see a big block called a transformer one of the wires on this will have (normally)a white tube like piece of plastic open and locate the fuse test and replace in need be,if this still does not solve then you need to check the capacitor a silver unit that the wire with the white fuse box attaches to NOW BE CAREFULL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this caries a large electrical load before you remove take a insulated screw driver and short the two points it should give a spark if it does then leave it alone if not replace,last is the maganatron that has blown assuming all the above is working////////// Advise do your reserch it is often cheaper to replace the unit than repairing it.Please ensure that you use insulated tools DO NOT!!! use your bear hands to remove wires or fuses a microwave can give a nasty shock and heart you SAFTY FIRST PLEASE
