Question about Microwave Ovens
The humming noise is probably being caused by higher than normal current through the power transformer.
The most likely causes are a shorted high voltage rectifier, or shorted turns on the high voltage winding on the transformer. A shorted magnetron can also cause high current, but usually does no emit any odor, as the shorted elements are inside the sealed envelope of the tube. A bad wiring connection to it, however, can smell and cause it not to heat.

I would say either the high voltage transformer or magnetron has failed.
Your oven has a 12 month parts & labor warranty and a 5 year warranty covering the magnetron.
If you have an extended warranty (or a long warranty) from your RV dealer, that can help. I'd ask them or check your paperwork.
Otherwise, you can visit Daewoo online or call them at 1-800-323-9668 or 1-800-553-4355 to find parts or find your nearest authorized service center to have them do the work.
