Question about Whirlpool WMH1162XVS Microwave Oven
The first part is most certainly very good advice. However if you have some degree of experience in working with high voltage equipment and are capable of discharging the HV cap. Then replacing a Magnetron isn't very difficult. A new one for this microwave can be had for $45.00.

The magnetron (the part that heats the food) may be bad or the circuitry to the magnetron may have burned out. Basically my advice is that if you have no electrical expertise, it isn't worth fixing. The magnetron if bad, costs almost as much as a new microwave. If you open it up (make sure it has been unplugged for a few hours and don't seen any obvious burnt parts, then most likely the magnetron is done and a new microwave is the way to go.
Let me know how this works out for you.
