Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. I will be helping you with your question today.

How old is this microwave?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Approximately 12 years old

You have a bad magnetron. The magnetron is the heating element. The reason I asked how old it was is because the magnetron has a 5 year warranty on it. Since this is 12 years old I would recommend buying a new microwave because the repair will cost over 350 dollars.
