okay perfect, if all the fans and the turntable work and it sounds normal but isn't heating the magnetron has failed. this is what heats the food, this is around $153.00 and would require a tech to install so your looking at around $250.00 minimum to repair. these are dangerous to work on. most people replace the microwave but thats up to you. hope this helps, thanks Bryan
