Now to the microwave....
Check fuse in plug, and that the socket you are using has power.
If you have lights, timer and other functions working - just no heat, I'm 90% certain that the microwave generator (magnatron) has failed.
This is how microwave ovens die unfortunately.
Sometimes you get sparking or smell of burning insulation just before they give up. Sometimes it's a quick zap.
Replacements are available for qualified technicians, but for domestic models it's usually cheaper to buy a replacement oven.
If you do replace it - sell the plate as people are always buying replacements!
Please take a moment to rate as Fixya! if it has clarified your options enabling a satisfactory solution.
Just saying "It's broken - buy a new one" would have been 'Helpful'
