HI. in most cases, this will lead to a failed Heating device(magnetron tube).It would be wise to check the Magnetron cutoff fuse to be sure of its integrity. if the fuse is blown, simply replace it. if the fuse continues to show continuity, replace the magnetron.
(((The fuse is located inside the unit along side the magnetron)))

Sounds like the magnetron has failed. There are some high voltage circuits that feed the magnetron and you can potentially get hurt if you don't know what you are doing. Would recommend you have it serviced by a professional if you want it fixed, otherwise look for a new one since the cost of repair can come close to the price of a new microwave oven.

Most likely the magnetron power / fan / cavity lamp relay is stuck on. Sometimes the contacts on mechanical relays get welded together. Some ovens use a triac (solid state AC switch) for the magnetron; this may be shorted. The part probably costs no more than $7 from an electronics supply house such as Mouser or Digi-Key, but you'll want it replaced by someone who is good at repairing printed circuit boards.
Unplugging the oven was an excellent idea.
