often this is due to grease or food particles stuck somewhere in the
cavity of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.
The waveguide cover (also called a spatter shield) is usually on the right side of the cavity and is about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.
In some models it is a larger stirrer cover type made of thicker plastic in the ceiling of the oven.
It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!
The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.
If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.
It provides critical protection for the magnetron.
Your owner's manual may show you how to remove the cover.

That pop was the magnetron frying. This is a repairable problem, but feirly expensive, around $300 if you have it done by a professional.
Please rate my response if it was helpful to you.

Testimonial: "Quick and accurate! Will go ahead and replace the entire unit. Thanks REPAIRMAN45!"
The symptoms of loud noise and no heat indicate a short in the magnetron or high voltage diode. Need to take it to a qualified repair, to figure out what the problem. The magnetron replacement can cost as much as a new oven. See what the warranty covers, maybe you might luck out.
