This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, but may instead be a loose door switch mount or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

The problem is that the magnatron is not getting power. Chance is that if could be a bolwn fuse inside the unit. If the fuse don't fix it then that leaves the charging diode, capacitor or the magnatron, or high voltage xformer of which without technical epertize I would not recomend attempting to replace. good luck
