First of all, how old is the oven? It sounds like 3 separate problems, but I would doubt that any were caused by using the grill on the same circuit. Most often, that will just blow the breaker. Importantly, have you had any other electrical items fail in the last few months? Have you had an unusual number of light bulbs blow in the home, or have they blown much sooner than you'd expect? A "yes" to these questions could indicate a fault in your house wiring which must be quickly addressed by the power company or an electrician. Barring those complications, here are my thoughts: I would say the oven light just failed. It could have had its life shortened or ended due to door slamming. For the display to return to 95.00 instead of 00.00, I would suspect that the control dial is worn, damaged or contaminated by grease, dirt, etc., causing a slight shorting effect. 95.00 is the maximum cooking time - the extreme top setting of the dial. This kind of controller problem could also be caused by grease or moisture on the control circuit board. This is most likely to build up when boiling on the stove without first turning on the hood fan (a must) or if the hood fan has a clogged filter or restricted air flow in the duct work. It could also be due to spraying cleaners directly on the control panel / keypad instead of using a slightly damp cloth. Lastly, the lack of cooking operation is most often caused by (yes, door switches or door switch mount trouble) a loose connection at the magnetron, or a bad magnetron. First to address would be the cooking problem, and the first thing I would check is door switches and switch mounts. The lamp would just need to be replaced, but in most newer models, you have to remove the outer cover, which means taking it down from the wall. Safety dictates that this is a two-person job, and you might need to have your original installation instructions on hand to do it. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk If you need to order any parts (other than a light bulb, which should be available at the grocery store) I would recommend Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com If you have a problem with the controller, that would have to be professionally repaired. We do that for customers nationwide for $39.95 in most cases.

Did you happen to spray any cleaner directly onto the keypad? Hope not. Just wanted to exclude that poissibility to save time.
Assuming this model does not have a feature allowing you to turn off the turntable via the control panel, the motor msay be failing. Or you may have a bad door switch.

If the microwave is still heating, but the carousel is not turning, this problem is commonly attributed to a turntable motor that has worn out and needs to be replaced. The following link explains how to access and replace one:
This is a very simple repair, that usually is not expensive. The price range will be determined by the model and manufacturer. This repair can also be performed on an over the range model microwave oven WITHOUT uninstalling it.
You can refer to any of the following websites for comparison:
The first three sites listed offer helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you with locating and proprly identifying the part(s) you need.
If you have any questions, please post back with your and let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: To answer your intial question, YES you can still use the microwave oven, but it is recommended that you stop the oven about midway through the cooking process and rotate your food to ensure it is heated evenly. Early model microwave ovens did not have a rotating carousel and it was often listed in the cooking directions to rotate your food this way.

Testimonial: "Thanks, very prompt and detailed response :)"
The magnetron (the part that heats the food) is probably done, they tend to go out if the fuse didn't blow and it usually isn't worth fixing as the cost of the magnetron is almost what it would cost to buy a new microwave.
Sorry for the bad news.
