I suggest you get it repaired - if you have warranty that is.
Might be cheaper to buy a new microwave, not sure on how much the parts would cost.

Hi,It is most likely the magnetron and diode that has to be replaced. This job should be done by a tech, High voltage. Magnetron's normally have a five year warranty, check your owners manual.

The symptoms of loud noise and no heat indicate a short in the magnetron or high voltage diode. Need to take it to a qualified repair, to figure out what the problem. The magnetron replacement can cost as much as a new oven. See what the warranty covers, maybe you might luck out.

Intermittent load noise (usual intermittent pulse noise is exaggerated) and the food is not heating though everything else seems to opperate normally: The Triac or Diode is capute.
You need to replace this part (@$30), but first need to discharge the capacitor, which is dangerous. I am going to give it a "shot", and not a "shock", all the punn intended. I will use an long insulated screw driver to touch both of the 2/3 tines of the adjacent capacitor, which will give a load "POP!" 2-3x to insure the stored energy is diffused.
Then, hopefully, simply replace the longe wire diode.
