It sounds like a failing magnetron. Sometimes they can be intermittent before they finally fail for good.
Chances are your oven has a 5-10 year warranty on the magnetron.

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.
