Question about Kenmore Microwave Ovens
Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.
The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.
There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

The 665 prefix on your model number is Whirlpool, but I haven't found the code "d" listed yet.
Can you set the cooking time?
If so, what happens when you press Start?
I'll post back if I find the codes or if you have other info and I can help further.
