Question about Microwave Ovens
I wouldn't suggest trying to modify the triac control circuit.
Without a schematic I couldn't begin to advise you on how to do that or to value or the parts that might be bad.
And I truly doubt that the schematic can be found.
I would kind of expect the opto to be bad, and maybe a resistor or two.
They would need to be replaced with the right values and an acceptable opto.
You may get lucky and find that the opto and resistors are all okay.
You can find the triac here. Looks like the GLC16-50 or GLC16-50S would work for you.
That's about all the help anyone can provide you, honestly.
Good luck and be careful!

The magnetron may have either failed or
is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.
