Question about Microwave Ovens
Is it a sharp by chance?If it is,alot of these units have a habbit of burning up the magnetrons(microwave producing device).It would cost more to fix than buy a new one.

Chances are you have a bad magnetron.
If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

It may be a shorted high voltage diode.
Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.
You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online.
