There are several things that could cause a microwave not to heat. Most common is the magnatron and some models have up to a 5 yr warranty on that part. Check the owners manual for that info.

im not sure what a magic chef bulb is but you can check by opening the casing, the bulb is normally mounted on a fiber board and screwed on the metal part of the microwave,remove the two wires attached to it first, after unscrewing the screw, you can pull out the bulb holder and you can see if it is a replaceable bulb if it has a socket. you can use the old bulb holder , just replace the bulb. in some design, the bulb is mounted directly to the bulb holder, you have to buy the bulb mounted directly to a new bulb holder and use them all as an assembly. be sure to screw them back tight. tnx. i hope i was able to help.

SOURCE: magic chef microwave shuts down
We had the same problem with our brand new Magic Chef. Before going through the trouble of taking it back I called Home Depot. After talking to a Home Depot Rep I am told that the overheat sensor is under the glass plate directly beneath the popcorn bag. Popcorn gets very hot and the heat of the popcorn causes the sensor to shut the machine down. I would imagine this would be the same for a baked potato.
Very poor design.
I was told to put a microwave safe plate down and put the popcorn bag on it. This should help to reduce the heat and not trip the sensor.
A safety sensor is great, but not if it keeps tripping the machine and shutting down!
