To check the internal fuse. Unplug the oven, unscrew and take off the
cover, the fuse should be easily found in the back by the power cord.
It looks like a regular fuse but is white instead of clear glass
because microwave fuses are special. You'll have to measure it for
continuity with a meter as a result and be sure to replace it with the
same kind. (try finding them at radio shack) Hopefully there isn't
something more serious also.
Hope ya fix it!

It sounds like the magnetron may have
either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high
voltage required to run it.
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 on high resistance range for short circuit, 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.
