Chances are that it is not actually microwaving, but that can be checked by placing a small cup of water inside.
Overall, though, it's not a good idea to run it if it's not working right.
This problem is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.
Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.
If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

You can find a helpful exploded view here.
The best place to order parts for this brand is Tritronics. Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835. Their Web site will be down until Jan. 2nd.
You remove the bottom cover, then there are two screws holding the motor in place.
Here's my generic help file:
NOTES ON REPLACING TURNTABLES & COUPLERS
Copyright 2007 by William E. Miller - MicrowaveDisplay.com
UNPLUG THE OVEN FROM THE WALL FIRST OR YOU WILL EXPOSE YOURSELF TO LETHAL VOLTAGES!
Note that I am not encouraging you to work on electrical items if you are not qualified, and I assume no liability for any consequences of your decision to do so.
When replacing the turntable coupler on most models, it is necessary to loosen or remove the screws that mount the turntable motor to the bottom of the chassis.
It is usually easier to do this with the microwave oven on its right (heaviest) side because you will need two hands for alignment.
Be sure to put a towel or similar cushion on the work surface to avoid scratching the oven wrapper (oven cover) or the work surface.
It is not necessary to remove the wrapper or the wires from the turntable motor itself, but you may need to remove a small metal duct covering the turntable motor if your oven has one.
It should only be held on by one or two screws.
Although a broken coupler may come out easily or even fall out, the new coupler will not go in without at least loosening the turntable motor.
Look at the hole in the new coupler. You'll notice it has (most do have) a flat side to it. That flat side will line up with the flat side on the motor shaft.
When the old coupler is out and the motor is loose, you can ease the new coupler in the hole with one hand while turning the coupler very slightly back and forth as you gently push the motor toward it. Do not force the part in.
When the coupler has mated properly with the motor, you should feel it go in.
Be sure it's right, or you may break the new coupler or bend the mounting ears of the motor when you attempt to tighten the screws.
Reassemble in reverse order.

Your description seems to be confusing turntable and light do not work
Bulb and motor OK
No power to light or turntable
Which is it?
They could be separate incidents. The drive motor could be fused and the globe just blew its life away..
