Often times when they run noisy and don't heat it's something on the high voltage side.

This means it could be the hight voltage transformer, the magnetron or the high voltage diode.

At best it would only need the diode replaced.

How old is the microwave?

1) What does the noise sound like?
2) Is there an odor when running? Strong odor usually will be from the magnetron.
Inside every old man is a kid wondering what the heck happened!
