I will assume you have checked the house's main circuit panel for any tripped breakers and tested the electrical wall outlet for a good power supply. Reset the house circuit breaker at the panel if necessary.
Otherwise, hopefully the problem is just a blown main fuse inside the microwave. In order to access and check this you will have to disconnect the power cord and then remove the oven from the wall if it is an overhead model. Then remove the case in order to access the electrical parts inside.
Components inside the microwave like the main capacitor can remain EXTREMELY dangerous even after the power cord is disconnected. So if you are not familiar with basic electrical safety precautions when working with this type of equipment, then you should leave this kind of task for a trained appliance technician.
Here is a picture of a generic main fuse for a microwave:
And here is the price and details for the main fuse on your model:
Just take the appropriate safety precautions and replace the fuse with an exact match and reassemble. If you tested the old fuse and it was still good, then you may be dealing with a more complicated and expensive fix possibly involving the control panel circuit board. At that point you may want to consider seeking additional assistance or just getting a new oven.
Thank you very much and good luck.
