Question about Magic Chef CMV1000B Microwave Oven
Making noise lights up but dont heat
If the inside light comes on and the turntable turns, then you probably have a bad connection either in the high voltage section or on the control board, or maybe a bad connection at the magnetron or a bad magnetron, high voltage diode or high voltage transformer.
Here are some links you or a friend can use for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

Investigate these three areas if your microwave won't heat but you hear a loud buzzing or humming noise:
A diode is an electronic component that readily
passes current in one direction only and blocks the flow of current in
the opposing direction. If your microwave's diode has become defective,
your microwave will not heat and you will hear a buzzing noise. Test the
diode to determine if this is the cause of your problem. Replace it if
it is defective.
A capacitor is an electrical device which stores
electricity. A defective capacitor may be why your microwave is not
heating but you are hearing a buzzing or humming noise. The capacitor
will have to be tested to determine if this is the cause of your
problem. A defective capacitor will have to be replaced before your
microwave will work again. Make sure you discharge the capacitor before you test it, though.
A defective magnetron is the third possible cause of
why your microwave is not heating, but you can hear a buzzing noise.
Test your microwave's magnetron. Replace it if it is defective.
