Question about Microwave Ovens
That doesn't sound good at all. Microwaves are death traps. It could have melted some metal inside. A fuse could have gone, but most likely the magnetron is shot. Might be safer to recycle and reinvest in a new microwave, especially for safety sake when dealing with controlling radiation.

Magnetron used with no load.
It sounds like the magnetron may have
either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high
voltage required to run it. Using the microwave with nowhere for the
energy to go results in magnetron meltdown!
