Hi, you have a faulty magnetron, capacitor, or diode that's keeping the unit from heating anything. They have internal fuses, but its good or nothing wood work. You can have these parts checked out at a appliance repair store, but wit parts and labor it may cost more then a new one just to be truthful with you. If you are handy, you can get into the electrical section and may get luck and see which part is faulty just by looking at them, for any blackish, scorching on any circuit boards, a capacitor is a small round or oval shaped part that holds a charge and these sometimes will leak, swell up and crack causing them to fail. If you want, you can try this. If you do have a board, this is where any diodes would be on the face of it, remove it enough to look on the back side for scorching and you can take it and purchase a new one and be back on line. These are just some options you may want to try. It may be something like a capacitor that is very easy to change out. This may save you some $$$$.If this is an older model, you may want to look for another, but if its a newer, I would spend the time to do the things I have said. I wish you the best on this, and want you to save your $$$$ on this. Please keep me posted, and would you please rate me on any help I may have been to you? Thank you!
