To shorten the story the bad part was the damper door motor. Picked one up on amazon for $30. put it in tonight and yipppie microwave is back in operation.

On another note Ms Millie sent me the wiring diagrams but i havent had time to chase that yet.
Be very careful with that microwave. A lot of those were recalled due to a faulty touch control board. Depending on how it malfunctions it can be a fire hazard just like the cooktops they are recalling again now.

The best move anybody can make is to ask You Tube for help on fixing something. I use it every time I can't figure something out. Good videos!
