NO the microwave doesn' t overheat or froze.
I couldn't answer to your question 100% because I don't know this model,
Some microwave don't heat if you don't set the heating temputer on, the power level. I've seen lot's of customer in the past couldn't get heat because all they press was time and didn't set the heat level.
second it is posible it doesn't heat because the magnetron power supply is burt out, this is the electronic board inside the unit below the magnetron, panasonic or know for burning this board to often, if it was I, they would have been design to inposible to blow them . Microwave have gone a long way and notice that the quality is not there no more. The old once or the same thing as the new once's but made more of plastic. The parts (main parts) or all the same design but mad to brake down after a shorter time. The older model lasted a minimum of 20 years, today they have the same magnetron but they don't last as long as before, made to brake. If they brake faster, the re sale or higher so more money to make.
To me it's just insulting to think that way, vehicule or the same , the repeat parts sales make profit go higher. It's all a tratege to make money faster and not respecting the consumer.
Third problem you may have is the magnetron is shut or the cap.
You would need a tech to tell you that part.
ps do what 99% think like trough it out, but make shure you understand you're creating polution everytime.

is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch
mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.
Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.
The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.
Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.
One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

Our technician suggest that there may be a problem with the Inverter Board in this model, which is something that would need to be looked at by a Service Center.
In rare cases it could be the door switches.
