Did anything spill or blowup inside? Remove the glass tray and be sure all is clean and dry.
If something did blow up (food or liquid), find the small mica window on the inside, and carefully remove it, clean up, dry off in the cavity too, and replace it.
Try to use. This has fixed 3 different microwaves for me. Hope it helps you.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Microwave Model #721.80522500

Magneto or magnatron has gone bad. This is the part that sends the waves through the food to heat it.

The problem is more than likely a bad magnetron, "heats food" the other two considerations are the high voltage capacitor and diode.

Does it make any extra sounds that it didn't use to? This would indicate something shorted in the high voltage doubleing section. If not, probably a bad magnetron or door switch.
