Check the door safety interlock switches. If they are burned (because you frequently open the door while the oven is running) they tell the magnatron that the door is open (forget what you know about the door) and not to run that magnatron (which produces the microwaves that actually heat the contents of your oven).
Check the switches with a ohm meter. Remove the cover to find the switches near the door latches.

When I opened up the microwave cover, noticed that the door latch mechanism was worn and not holding up the interlock switch. A thick piece of tape on the worn piece of plastic and microwave was back to working (I had symptom of the timer counting down without the microwave turning on)
