It may be a bad fuse or capicitor. I have had a time in the past with something similar. I contacted Repair Clinic.com. They were very helpful with their advice and even followed up to make sure I got things fixed okay.

Since it sounds louder than before, it is probably a bad high voltage diode or magnetron.
If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:
Sears may send you a magnetron to install yourself since it's under warranty. For that or warranty service, contact Sears at http://www.sears.com.
You can save about $75 by taking it to the shop yourself, as opposed to an in-home service call.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: Microwave won't heat food.
My Whirlpool microwave, over the stove, stopped working when my son used it to heat his food and a heavy sound came out, like something exploded in it. When I check it, there was nothing broke. Everything works fine except that it does not heat. I will appreciate any help

We replaced the board behind the control panel. $130.00. If you do this make sure you can put the wires back the right way. My husband finally got it and our micro is working like brand newThanks to all who tried to help.

Small component called a diode. Open up the microwave and try to find a black (usually) component that is most often connected between the magnetron (the thing that heats the food) and the chassis of the microwave oven (ground). I used to make a fortune replacing these! Costs about 5 bucks most appliance supply stores. Make darn sure you get one of the same value.
