loud buzzing - NO

This is going to need a new magnetron. Its the part that makes the microwaves. Its pretty easy to replace with just a few basic hand tools and I will help you do that.
A word of caution please do not get near the large electrolytic capacitor!!! It can store a lethal charge even when the unit is disconnected from its power source. Don't jump ahead and everything will be fine;-)
The best place to get a new magnetron is Espares, phone: 0844 9777 888.
