hi this is Bryan, you probably have one of two possible problems both of which is an expensive repair . 1 . your high voltage transformer is bad. or 2 your magnitron is bad. either way its cheaper to replace and much faster because you would probably wait awhile for part and finding parts could be a problem, unfortunatly microwaves are not realy made to last as long as the use can buy new one for around $250. if its over the range or cheaper if its countertop. microwaves are also dangerous to work on . the capasitor can hold alot of power for a long time even unplugged. please be carefull if you attemp to repair yourself. I personaly dont recomend it. hope this helps in you. thanks Bryan
