Question about Microwave Ovens
It is likely something in the magnetron circuit has failed. This could be the fuse, capacitor, or magnetron itself.
Another possible is the safety interlock on the door latch.
First up do not go poking inside this circuit yourself unless you know certainly how to discharge the capacitor properly. It will hold a lethal voltage even when the oven is unplugged, for an unknown length of time.
That said, you may find the cost of repair by a tech is not economical anyway, with a minimum labour charge of say $100. You might be better off buying a new one, and having the warranty on it.
