Since you've already checked the fuses, my next suspects would be the thermal cutouts (or thermostats or thermal fuses, depending on your exact model number). One would be located on the right side of the chassis right above the magnetron. The other would be located on the left side of the chassis. It's the flame sensor.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk I appreciate your thoughtful rating.
