Make sure air intake that cools transformer and mag tube is free of dust clog. I looked at a friends, who complained his was not heating as well as it should. I found a lot of lint like material clogging the air intake. After I cleaned it he claims it works as well as it ever did. The top was very hot while running before cleaning too. Now it gets food hot, and the cabinet gets only slightly warm to the touch.

Normally if the microwave appears to work but does not heat it will be the magnetron. There could be other parts that go bad but the mag is normally the prob. I would not suggest replacing this on your own as it is dangerous - get a qualified tech.
If the microwave has no power (nothing on display) then more than likely it will be a fuse. The one that I am referring to is normally found on the left top side and will have 2 black wires going to it. The fuse should have continuity - if it doesn't then it is not allowing the circuit to be completed thus the unit seems dead.
