Microwave problem

I was cleaning the AS and noticed the microwave was not illuminated. I opened the door of the microwave and saw the little button that makes the glass tray spin around was spinning. The light is on in the microwave too, but the outside panel is not able to light up, nor do any of the push things on the front work. So....any ideas? I shut down all the electricity and then turned it back on, but the same issues are going on. Thanks in advance for your help.

Saw that recently with the inside light of the MW in a friend's A/S motor home. Usually means a circuit board short. Or in other words a new microwave. We put a new one in. Had to build a new face frame in the cabinets due to size diff but fairly easy and Sherwin Williams matched the stain.

I recently found the front panel dead on mine. I didn't even bother to troubleshoot. I replaced it. I found one at Home Depot that was fairly close. I had to make a shim to make the bracket at the top work.

The bad news is, you almost certainly need a new microwave.
The good news is, you can use this as an opportunity to get a new, updated version. We have really liked the convection microwave we installed in ours, to replace the old microwave.

Ours (black Sanyo convection/microwave) had display issues shortly after we bought it. Basicly the microwave worked, but no readable display. Anyways, I found a guy on the internet who repairs the display boards, took the damn thing all apart & sent it in for.repair. 3 weeks later it did the same thing. Luckily, Sears carried the EXACT same oven on-line only. So it was a simple swap. If I remember right, it was about 200 bucks. ( not too bad)
