Microwave ovens use a series of micro switches to operate as interlocks to ensure the unit will only operate once the door is securely closed.
If these locks are not operating properly, the timer would count down just like it was operating. There will be no noise like the normal vibration or fan sounds when the start button was pressed. It will simply act like it will operate, but it will never turn on any of the components.
You would need to check these switches if they are functioning properly and would need the help of a qualified technician to test them. If you plan to do it yourself, Check if the switches are mechanically operating and that electrical continuity would change as it was actuated.
There will be at least three of these switches aligned so they close in a specific sequence when the oven door is closed.
This closure process is designed to prevent someone from just sticking something in to actuate the switch and run the microwave with the door wide open and becoming exposed to the microwave energy.
Two of the switches are in place to provide power to the units high voltage section and to tell the control board when the door has been closed. These are usually normally open switches.
The third switch is called the monitor and acts as a safety switch blowing the internal appliance fuse in the event any tampering is going on, and this one is usually a normally closed switch.
If you find the fuse inside your microwave is now an open circuit, check the monitor switch as it may be the cause.
Hope this helps.

I suggest you have the microwave oven replaced, the prices have dropped considerably for the last several years and you have got your money worth out of the unit.
