Timer changing but microwave is not turning on?
It's a bad door switch or loose door switch mount . 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 .
WARNING : A microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. I strongly recommend you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair .
good luck .

My MCD1311ST Majic Chef Microwave
I have not seen a microwave wall made up of such material but similar was commonly used as a roof to the earlier microwaves that employed a stirrer to deflect the microwave radiation in order to reduce hotspots in the food. Turntables were found to be effective enough so the stirrer has been largely consigned to history. Many microwaves so equipped often had the cardboard discarded without apparent ill effect.
The exit of the waveguide is often covered by a similar material but these are mostly only a few inches square...
These examples used a material transparent to microwaves and wasn't reflective in any way. That yours is reflective indicates it could be intended to bounce the microwave energy around in an attempt to reduce food hotspots. It should be available as a spare part if the oven isn't obsolete.

No power ,wont turn on
if it happened when you opened/closed the door, check your door switches. if you search for that problem here, youll find a useful video showing you how to do that. if it just kinda happened randomly, (actually you need to check this either way), try the fuse. you'll need tamper proof torx bits and a ratchet. take off the casing and you'll see the ceramic fuse right behind where the power cord goes into the microwave. use an ohlms meter to check it. if the numbers on the meter change, the fuse is good. if they stay at 1, its bad.

Magic chef mcd1611st fuse keeps blowing when door is closed
Only time I have run into that problem, there was a bad micro-switch for the door. First thing make sure that you un-plug the microwave. You will have to take the outside cover off and look for a series of small switches mounted on a frame where the door latches. If you have access to a multi-meter you can check the switches for continuity. Easiest way is to remove that frame making sure that you mark or write down what color wires go each switch and then remove the wires. It may be immediately visible which switch is bad but if not check each switch with the meter. Your contacts will be a common terminal and either a normally open (NO) or normally closed terminal (NC) and sometimes both. The "NO" terminal will not have continuity until you press the switch button, the "NC" terminal will have continuity all of the time until you press the button. If you do not have any continuity at all or if you have continuity on one terminal no matter which way you push the button, that will be your bad switch. Hope this helps.
