Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.
Could be any of three things, The capacitor, the transformer, the magnetron. The capacitor is high voltage and should be safely discharged before working on it. For this reason we don't recommend this to the average homeowner. If you're not knowledgeable in electrical service you might consider finding local tech help.
