There is always a fuse inside a microwave.Sometime this has only blown due to a surge,and upon replacing, the microwave will continue working.If it is something worse the fuse will continue to blow.In this case it could very well be the transformer,but there are other possible causes as well.(for example the control board or a short.)

Generally, you get something unless the fuse inside is blown. There is generally a fuse inside the unit when you remove the button package. First, make sure that the outlet you have is good. Plug something else into it and see that it works.

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.
If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.
If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.
Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.
When checking thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.
If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.
If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.
If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.
If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.
You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.
If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

It has probably had an overhesat problem and the repair is quite simple. First you must remove the cover. This will require the removal of alot of scres on top, bottom and rear of machine. Once done, looking down at the top of the microwave all the way to the left about half way from the front to the rear you will see a round senso with two black wires going to it. This issimilar to a fuse and when you remove it, you can test it with a continuity testor. Electric should flow through it with no resitance. If it does not, it must nbe replaced. It's about ten bucks.
