Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect the magnetron has failed if everything sounds the same as it did when it was working. However, if it is much quieter, you may just have a faulty door switch. If it makes a humming or buzzing sound, you may have a faulty capacitor or rectifier diode. Has the sound changed from when it was working?
