Question about Sunbeam SMW777 Microwave Oven
Sounds like your magnetron is not working. I would take off cover (power disconnected) and look for a fuse somewhere where the power cord comes in.

Tips for a great answer:
A diode is an electronic component that
readily passes current in one direction only and blocks the flow of
current in the opposing direction. If your microwave's diode has become
defective, your microwave will not heat and you will hear a buzzing
noise. Test the diode to determine if this is the cause of your problem.
Replace it if it is defective.
A capacitor is an electrical device
which stores electricity. A defective capacitor may be why your
microwave is not heating but you are hearing a buzzing or humming noise.
The capacitor will have to be tested to determine if this is the cause
of your problem. A defective capacitor will have to be replaced before
your microwave will work again. Make sure you discharge the capacitor before you test it, though.
A defective magnetron is the third
possible cause of why your microwave is not heating, but you can hear a
buzzing noise. Test your microwave's magnetron. Replace it if it is
