Question about Microwave Ovens
Does it work better when you gently push up or down on the door?
If so, it is a failing door switch or door switch mount. If not, I would say your keypad is wearing out.
Either can be fixed pretty easily.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Sounds like an intermittent door switch or a loose door switch mount. Very common.
