Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.
The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.
There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

This is a microwave, correct?
I suspect the door lock interface switch(es) are burned out. Unplug it, be mindful of the 25,000 volts in the silver thing. Check the micro switches (look where the door closes on the top right side, probably) two positions, normally open or normally closed. check them for proper operation.
Micro switches are the most common of microwave failures because most of us open the door while the machine is running causing arc at the switch and burning up the little contacts.

SOURCE: Microwave will not heat
what this mean it that your wave has develop a disconnection problem internally from the wire what you will have to do to fix up your wave is to unscrew your wave then trace the wire down to the element (heat provider) it is silver in colour
please if there is no disconnection in it then it means that the element has gone bad then you will have to make a change of it with a better one you can get it in the store
please make sure that all form of power supply is put OFF before you can carry out this function.
Good lock ,thank you and thanks for using fixya.
