Hello, this indicates the high voltage transformer is either not getting voltage or the magnetron which is the part that actually produces the heat has failed. Usually on these the magnetron fails and causes this issue. All functions operate but no heat.

The average cost to make this repair is roughly $300. You're better off buying a new unit.
