Your can be repaired, but it's generally not worth the cost. Running the oven empty usually destroys the magnetron tube which generates the microwaves. The tube is replaceable, but it's a costly part. And the repair should be done by a professional because of safety concerns. Between the cost of parts and labor, it's usually not much more (and sometimes even less!) expensive to buy a new oven.
While the kitchen timer feature of a microwave is handy, many people accidentally kill their ovens this way. You might want to pick up a small digital timer when you shop for a new oven. It's cheap insurance.
