There is a flame sensor whose job it is to cut power if there is a fire. It has probably blown.
It may be called a thermostat, thermal cutout, or thermal fuse. It will look something like the drawings below. (The service info I have on this model is spotty).
But generally, there is one on the floor of the chassis behind the control panel. It should read open on a continuity test.
There will normally be two others, and they will read closed (also called shorted or zero ohms). One is on or near the magnetron and the other is along the top of the cooking cavity.
If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
NOTE: There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

Some models are equipped with a sensor that can automatically adjust the oven's heating time based on the amount of steam in the oven. If your microwave is displaying E1, E4, or E5, there may be an issue with the gas sensor. For an E1 error, press the Cancel button and check on the food.
If the message is either ERROR or E-6, it indicates a mechanical fault.
For all error indications, try unplugging the microwave from the outlet for at least ten minutes and then plug it back in. If the error persists, the microwave may require service. Please use our ASC Locater to find your nearest Authorzied Service Center
