I had the same problem with my Sharp OTR microwave/convection oven. I had 2 service reps out to look at it (Sears and Lowes) they both said it was the magnatron and would cost about $500.oo to repair it. I called Waverly's Appliance in Paris, TN and it turned out to be a diode. Total cost of repair was $35.00 including service call.

SOURCE: microwave wont heat
The manual says "while in standby mode, press and hold the '3' key on the keypad for 3 seconds until 2 tones sound and the 'DEMO' icon appears. Repeat to turn demo mode off."

Since FixYa is not currently
notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered, you will
need to post a NEW help request.
In your new post, please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit and your symptoms, as well as the answer to the following questions:
- When you try to microwave are the inside light, internal cooling fan and turntable all working?
- Is there any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?
(A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.)
We have a sound clip here of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
