It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it. The turntable motor is supplied from the same point as the magnetron transformer.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then any fuses. The high voltage diode with a moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.
