Anything can be fixed once you know what is wrong. Unless you can disassemble this and use a voltmeter you may be better off buying new as this is 14 yrs old now. Replacing one part does not give new life to all the others.

How can I without you doing a diagnosis? I am not a magician.

Most likely the magnetron has failed. Unfortunately that part is no longer available.

I am sorry, but your best solution is to consider purchasing a new unit.
