This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.
This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Yes it can. There should be a mica cover on the top of the microwave. Usually grease will build up there and when it gets to hot will burn thru the paint. That was the buzzing you heard. I have used white touch up paint in a bottle with brush in the cap to fix the bare sheet metal. Then you can reorder the mica cover. Around 20 dollars.

This is the waveguide cover / stirrer cover.
Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.
It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!
The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.
If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.
Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.
If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced. It provides important protection for the magnetron.

With the symptoms you mention, I would suspect:
- loose or corroded connection at the magnetron
- bad magnetron
- shorted high voltage diode
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
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.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

This oven is programmed with a self diagnostic failure code system which help for troubleshooting -H97 and as described above "mica piece and burnt smell" sound like Inverter Power Supply. DO NOT try to repair or re-adjust preset volume on the board. It is very dangerous to repair or adjust without sufficient test equipment because this circuit handles very high voltage and very high current Operating a misaligned inverter circuit is dangerous due to the Very HIGH voltage and current that is produced by this board.
Defective board must be replaced with new one -INVERTER POWER SUPPLY.
