Hi this is Bryan, microwaves are very dangerous for untrained person to work on, but I think it may be the internal fuse or thermal overload , how old is microwave? sometimes if its a major repair its cheaper to replace microwave. if the fuse is blown and you have it replaced and it happens again it may be an expensive fix. be careful if you attempt to repair this yourself, the capacitor stores very high voltage even when microwave is unplugged.please consider having it serviced by service tech. hope this helps, Bryan
