I can't imagine anything possibly going wrong. If the magnets stick to the oven case then the case is steel which will in itself provide a quite effective shield for the field from the magnets.

Be very observant for the next few edays. The magnets may pull all the microwave over to one side of the oven, and then you'll have food which heats unevenly. Be sure you put an equal number of magnets on the other side.
I (might) be teasing you.

Your microwave already has some fairly powerful magnets inside which are part of what makes it work. It seems unlikely that sticking even the best neodymium magnets you can buy onto the case could cause any damage.
