Question about Microwave Ovens
There are few things that you could try.
1. Cut up a lemon into pieces and put it into a pot of boiling water on the stove. Let it boil for 10-15 minutes to freshen the air.
2. Cut up an onion and place it in a bowl of water. Leave it in the middle of the room overnight and it will absorb odors from the air.
3. Boil a handful of cloves in a pot of water to help to change the lingering smell in the air.
4. Wash all floors, walls and affected areas with 1 part bleach: 99 parts water (10% solution) or a water/vinegar solution.
Try the above options and see if that works.

It sounds like the magnetron may have
either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high
voltage required to run it.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT
This is a job for a professional but if
you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!any capacitors are discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.
