How long does it run before it fails? Does it look like the display is getting scrambled characters? I'm leaning toward a bad magnetron, but it may be more or less than that. If you can give more details and especially the actual full model number (as opposed to the model name Advantium 120) that would help. Thanks!

If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these: Fuses Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it.
Door switch If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work.
Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

What size breaker is protecting the circuit? Per the National Electrical Code, a microwave and a washing machine should each have their own dedicated circuit (and own breaker) rated at 20 amps. Also, if the breaker is old and has tripped many times due to continuous overloading, it may be weakened and could be tripping at a lower amperage than what it is rated. I would try the following:
1. If possible, test the microwave on another circuit and see if it trips that breaker. If possible, use a 20 amp circuit for the test.
2. If you're comfortable with working in an electrical panel safely, place a clamp on ammeter on the hot wire of the affected circuit in the panel and see how much current is being drawn when the microwave is on.
3. If you would rather stay out of the panel, get an inline ammeter/watt meter and plug the microwave into this. If the rating of the microwave is less than 15 amps (1800 watts), you may be able to use a device called a kill-a-watt at a local hardware store. This will show how much power is actually being used by a given appliance.
