Yes, crazy glue is safe -- suggest letting it dry 24 hours before using oven. The heat could generate eye-watering fumes.

That will be caused by condensation affecting the controls of the microwave oven. Not a lot can be done about that except cut down on the steam maybe or wait for the temperature to rise slightly avoiding the condenation problem.

If the digital program circuit does not get a feedback signal from the inverter after a few seconds it shuts the unit down. It may be a simple fix as a defective door switch but that is rare. More often than not it is a problem with the inverter, magnetron, or programer circuit. A microwave has voltages that can kill, so for this reason I do not recommend a novice attempt to repair the high voltage section of the microwave. A bad door switch yes, but not much else. Microwaves are very cheap and more often than not is is not cost effective to pay to have them repaired. My advice is to check the door switch and if you find it is good junk the microwave unless you are experienced at their repair.

IF YOU REMOVE THE OUTER COVER FROM THE OVEN ABOUT 8 SCREWS AND LOOK TO THE REAR OF THE OVEN THERE SHOULD BE A FUSE THIS COULD BE THE PROBLEM IF THE FUSE IS GOOD GET ANOTHER OVEN TO REPAIR WILL COST MORE THEN A NEW OVEN

It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT

This is a job for a professional but if you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.



Load test.

A simple safety test.
Place 1/2 litre of water in a glass container. Measure the temperature of the water.
Place in microwave and heat on full power for 1minute.
Measure the temperature after it has stood for 1minute.
If the temperature difference is more than 9 degrees Celcuis the magnetron is working and producing about 700Watts of heat.
If your microwave is labelled with 900 or 1000Watts. That is about right.
If the temperature is less then the magnetron is not working properly and may need replacing.


This a only a rough guide and any doubts you should consult an authorised service agent.

If they are meant to be user replaceable, you can download the owner's manual here.

If not, you will have to disassemble the oven.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number
here.

Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

I would say that when the microwave is switched on to cook, the magnetron heaters take about 3 seconds to get the magnetron to draw current and that would coinside with a poor connection in the mains power plug or fuse holder in the machine.
Seems logical to me.

Sorry to read about your problem.
It seems your have a general failure in the power control or switch failure on the unit. if your unit has power, and things lite. it is more likely you have a control/switch problem,

Microwaves must be serviced by technicians due to the inherent dangers involved in repairing these appliances. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even though the unit is completely unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any internal component repair.
