Your temperature sensor is defective.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

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.

Most likely the hi volt energy components. Usually the hi volt diode or hi volt capacitor. There is hi energy stores here so be careful or do not attempt it. A person skilled in electronics, tv repair, or microwaves can handle it . It is usually worth repairing. The other parts that could be the problem are the magnatron or the hi volt transformer; if so, you might think twice before repair (the price will be higher).Goodluck, Macgivor
