If there is no light either, then it may just be a blow fuse. Look around the outter shell for screws to remove or little tabs to bend to get the outter shell to come off, then look inside by where the power cord attaches to. You will see the power inverter, next to it should be a fuse. Look at the fuse to see if it is bad. (it should have a little thin wire running all the way across it)
If the fuse is bad, replace it. It the fuse is good, then test power from power inverter to the control board .One of them could be bad.

Why did it stop working?

If you believe the internal fuse has opened, it will be necessary to remove the outer cabinet to get access internally. You will be exposed to potentially lethal voltages so be sure power is disconnected before you start although disconnection does not render the oven electrically safe.

Microwave is loud

It is normal to have a moderate sound, but if extremely loud it indicates trouble with the magnetron, should be returned for a replacement.

Cuisinart CMW-100 , wont heat or turn the table? all else o.k.

We changed the 20amp fuse and that was not the problem so we returned it to Macy's. If anyone knows of a reliable brand of microwave today please let us know. All the reviews on microwave ovens recently are bad.
