SOURCE: I'm looking for a repair
The truth is that the repair manual for your Frigidaire microwave is not available anywhere online. The manufacturers of this unit did not make it available. I went further searching and couldn't find any.
I would suggest you contact the manufacturer of this unit via phone or e-mail and request for the repair manual from them. They might give it to you or direct you to a dealer where you can get the repair manual.
This is the best you can do to get the repair manual you are requesting for.
Go to Frigidaire's website, check "Contact Us" and you would see their e-mail and phone number.
Additional information concerning your Microwave's Magnetron;
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 defective.
Testing a magnetron
NOTE: Before you test this component, make sure your microwave is unplugged, and that you have discharged the capacitor.
There are two tests to conduct in order to determine whether or not a magnetron has become defective. If you receive results other than what are detailed below, you will have to replace your microwave's magnetron. Each test is described for you here:
TEST 1: Locate your magnetron and label each of the wires attached to it so that you know which wires are to be replaced where. Set your ohmmeter to the lowest resistance scale. Take a resistance measurement between each of the magnetron's terminals by touching each probe to one terminal each. Reverse the probes and take a second resistance measurement. Each measurement should read less than one ohm.
TEST 2: Set your ohmmeter to its highest resistance scale. Touch one of the meter's probes to a magnetron terminal. Touch the other probe to the metal magnetron housing. Take special caution to not touch the two probes together. This could result in an inaccurate reading. This test should produce a reading of infinity - indicating an open circuit.
Read the tips on the below links on how to replace your microwave oven's diode and how to discharge the capacitor.
CAUTION: Your microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged.

The unit normally draws about 13 amps of current when it's running, so it's not unusual for the wires to get warm.
A bad bottom door switch is very common in these units.
Once it's fixed, make sure no one opens the door while it's cooking. That causes premature switch failure.
Tell them to hit the "stop" pad first.

Thank you for your post, Steve Shaw!
From what you have described it sounds like a possible faulty wiring harness, control panel, or magnetron within your Frigidaire microwave. I would recommend having a professional out to provide a proper diagnosis. This will help to avoid unnecessary part purchases. -Matt
