Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The symptom you have could be caused by one of many possible failures. The microwave will need to be diagnosed in order to determine the failure. When you add the service fee, labor and parts; it would likely cost as much or more than the cost of a new microwave.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
