Microwave PNM9196SF1SS not working

Help. The other day noticed the microwave was off. Checked the circuit breakers (turned off and on even though did not see anything wrong), checked plug. Nothing changed. The next morning it was on again so I though my husband had fixed it. Was just using it again and in the middle of heating something up it just went out completely. No lights, no nothing. Can't see an obvious electric problem. I would like to prevent calling the wrong repair person. Does this sound like an electric issue or an appliance issue? Is it fixable DIY?

I'd start by unplugging it and checking for voltage at the outlet with a volt/OHM meter to narrow it down.
No meter, then just plug in a power tool and see if it runs.
No power then shut off the breaker, and remove the outlet to see if it's back stabbed.
If it is change it to the side screws instead.
