I am assuming the food is heated. Most microwaves have only 2 major parts, the magnetron, the thing that makes the radio waves(heat) and the control module. The relays for the light and rotisserie are on the control module board. However, as the interior light does not work. have you tried a replacement? the table not spinning may be jammed with food or something keeping the motor from turning, that or it is seized up and needs replaced. I don't think the 2 things are related. Try a new bulb and then taking the bottom apart to gain asses to the motor that spins the plate before I looked at a new control board.

    Okay, that helps, you originally said everything else works light fan etc.. Remove the cover or front panel to expose the backside of the touch pad. this is the control module. On this and sometimes by the magnetron there are fuses. check them and if need to change them. If none are blown or this doesn't solve the problem, you may want to look into getting a new machine, as the replacement parts will cost about as much as a new micro. Hopefully this isn't a built in with a regular oven, then you may need to look for the repair part.

    P.S. be careful poking around inside the microwave. even if the cord is unplugged there are capacitors inside that can hold a serious charge and will shock the hell out off you if you touch them.

Turn table won't turn on ewave microwave oven

Almost certain if microwave still heats a bad motor or gear issue inside the unit--if unit will not heat the safety switch in the side that the door engages is the cause of the wheel or platter not turning--prevents unit from use if door open.
