It sounds just like the magnetron is bad, overheating and opening the thermostat. This is how it would work if that were the case.
One other thing is to be sure that the cooling fan is running and that you feel air flow.
You should check the air filter and grille, as well as the outside vent for any blockage.

Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!
this only if you are competent.
your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the
mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to
the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.
