Question about Microwave Ovens
If the fuse is good, it's probably an open thermostat or thermal cutout / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or (less liklely) on top of the cavity / body of the oven.
When checking thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

Some brands have a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.
Please write back with your brand and model number if you need further help.
