microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.
Since it's a basic counter top microwave, this may not be worth repair when you consider the cost of a new comparable unit.
If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.
The part number of your keypad is WB27X10624 and you can get it here for $51.37 plus shipping.
