The magnetron has probably failed. Check the High Voltage Diode for short circuit. Replace protection fuse with same value. The Diode is standard on most microwaves. Magnetron to be replaced with the same profile and wattage. Be sure to unplug Mains before opening the unit. Good Luck, JUS004

It sounds as though you may have run the microwave while empty, which can damage the magnetron.
Not that I'm optimistic, but the first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.
Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.
Otherwise it likely needs a new magnetron.

All the parts you mention are very inexpensive, but yours does not have a triac.
It could be the cook relay, but it's more likely to be a switch.
Looking at the schematic, it's probably a bad primary interlock (upper door switch) or maybe its mount is bad.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.
Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.
The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.
Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.
If you have a broken mount, it's usually more economical and safer to just add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.
