The magnetron burned out inside the unit. When that happens you need a new magnetron tube to fix it. Here is a link to the part and a video to help you do the repair if you want to attempt it. You may want to consider a new one due to the part costs and labor time to do the job, but that is up to you. Note the video is for reference only, these all come apart the same so you will have a good idea how to do the job.
