Question about Miele Microwave Ovens
The longer the convection oven is on, the more fan clunking noise is audible. We have cleaned the oven but clunking sound seems to be getting worse

It seems like it is the first time you either own or using a microwave oven. Yes, there are more than one fan/motors inside a microwave, depending upon the model/type.

If I had to bet, I would say the fan blade assembly is loose on the fan motor shaft.
If so, a spot of super glue where they meet will usually take care of that.
If that's not it, it should be investigated.
It is vital that the cooling fan runs properly, or the magnetron will be destroyed.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.
The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.
There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.
