The magnetron unit in the microwave needs to be replaced. To verify this you can ohm the wire connectors and the body of the magnetron. If there is no resistance on the ohm meter it is still good, but if you get resistance on the ohm meter the magnetron is shorting.

FIRST ,,MICROWAVE OVENS ARE REALLY SAFTY MINDED AND THATS A GOOD THING....THERE ARE USUALLY THREE DOOR SWITHCES NEXT THE KEYBOARD--THE ONE ON TOP AND THE ONE ON BOTTOM ARE PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SWITCHES,,YOUR PROBLEM SOUNDS LIKE ONE OF THESE IS NOT MAKING CONNECTION..YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO PRESS 'DOWN" WITH A LITTLE PRESSURE ON THE DOOR AFTER CLOSING TO SEE IF THE FAN WILL START,,,IF YOU NOTICE --THERE ARE 2 LATCHES(HOOKS) COMING OUT OF THE DOOR,,WHEN THE DOOR IS CLOSED,THOSE LATCHES ARE SPRING LOADED AND MAKE CONTACT ON THOSE SAFTY SWITCHES....THIS IS NOT A CUSTOMER REPAIR--MICRO'S ARE JUST TO DANGEROUS WHEN YOU TAKE THE COVER OFF--IF THIS DOES BRING THE FAN BACK ON--YOU GOT A BAD DOOR SWITCH AND SHOULD BE A REASONABLE REPAIR
THE OTHER SOLUTION STILL WOULD BE A CONNECTION PROBLEM ON THE KEYBOARD ITSELF-THE WIRES JUST PLUG ON THE CIRCUIT BOARD BEHIND THE KEYBOARD---STILL A EASY REPAIR--GOOD LUCK TUNICA

You have a bad secondary interlock (lower door switch) or its mount is damaged or out of alignment.
We have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.
You will need the free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it.
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 only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Replacing the Magnetron will fix this heating issue you are having with this microwave. The Magnetron is the device that is responsible for the heating action.

SOURCE: First of all, my do
BECAREFUL high voltage transformer inside of unit. Check for blown fuses on the control panel. Check the door interlock sitches. there are usually 2-3. A bad interlock will keep power from the magnatron. Check the thermal fuse, small dime sized disc with 2 wires. look for the schematic it will give the location usually near the magnatron. Checking the magnatron is a little more difficult.
