From the description it is the magnetron, it will be expensive for the part alone, and keep in mind shops have different rates making impossible to give exact quotes, but I would estimate parts and labour at least $250.00 or more, if you decide to go with the repair make sure the magnetron is not a aftermarket product it will last about 6 months.
you have to remove the cover, un-plug the power cord= un-screw the screws located behind the unit and on the sides if any also under side if any, remove cover and you will locate the fuses and other components behind the key pad, also check slow blow or thermal fuse usually located on top of oven. NB: HIGH VOLTAGE COMPONENTS PROCEED WITH CAUTION!!!!!!!
Take the cover off...comes apart many different ways on various models. Once cover is removed look for blown fuses...should be one on the main input near the power cord. May be additional fuses at the transmitter. Could also be as simple as removing input power for 15 minutes and then reconnecting; I recommend you try this step first.
I would not use the lamps. Sounds like there is a shortage in the wiring for the lamps. They lamps should run together, and if one of the sockets have a short or burned wire it will not let it complete the circuit. This could be a fire hazard, so I would replace the whole microwave. It would be more trouble to tear it apart and find the exact problem than it's worth.
Yes, this is caused by not disconnecting the microwave from the power line when removing or installing a bulb or by the filaments shorting when the bulb blows.
This is a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $39.95.
