Everything works? Except for the main component the magnetron . The problem is in the oven. If it's new, I would just return it as defective otherwise you will need to have it repaired. Could be as simple as loose connection in the machine, a bad control board, bad a magnetron etc. probably not worth fixing if you need to pay someone to repair it. If you attempt it yourself I would find the service manual. There are some very high voltages in a microwave oven you want to make sure everything is put together correctly

Please forgive me in advance. I do not mean to be insulting. What do you mean

? Have you tried a cup of water inside the unit and hitting the right buttons? I think it is cook time, 200, start.

The manual that come with these is not the best I have ever tried to read. BTDT.
