Question about Microwave Ovens
This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the switch, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.
The damper is a door located on the right side of the innards. The damper closes and opens depending on cooking mode. See the attached sample photo.

And...... if you can find a number on the actual timer assy other than the timer motor, there are still many of these mechanical timers out there deep in the parts supply shelves. I would bet your could still find this timer pretty close to home in a local Appliance repair shop.
Just a note on older appliance parts (+25 years) .... sometimes the cost of replacement parts is far more than the unit cost new.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
