By default, it should cook at high (full) power.
On most brands, you would press Cook, enter the time digits, then press Start. And it automatically cooks at high power.
If it is losing heating power, your magnetron is probably failing.
This one's pretty old, but if you really love it, it's worth it. Owners of old microwaves usually love them. They're pretty strong units.
I just recently repaired an old GE (then by Panasonic / Quasar) convection microwave for a customer in New York. He shipped the whole microwave (95 pounds) to me and of course paid for return!

Possible causes of this type of failure:
High voltage supply failure
Logic control fault
uPC is holding the unit in safety shutdown
I would recomend sending the unit for an estimate.
If it is a low cost model, it will most likely not be worth to service.

I would suggest that contact the dealer from whom you purchased the oven or call any number listed on the model tag of the oven.
