Does the display go off when it stops?

Check the cooling fan (#16 on the break down diagram).

The cooling fan suppose to run wherever the magnetron runs. If it does not then the magnetron will overheat and the TCO will shut the power to the high voltage transformer off. That's probably what happened with your microwave.

You probably have to remove the microwave from the cabinet and remove the outer case.
