Parts or new appliance?
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

If the timer is counting down but you don't hear any motors running and it's not heating---this means that your microwave thinks one of your 3 door switches has failed. You will need to remove the control panel and test the door switches to determine which one is faulty. If for some reason all 3 test good, then the display control board is actually bad and not reading the door switches properly so you'll need to order and replace to fix the issue. Below is a video that shows you how to remove the control panel so that you can test the door switches.
