It's most likely a failed high voltage rectifier diode or high voltage transformer.
If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

ther is only 2 causes for this. one is that the door latch has failed and the only way to repair is to get the entire door assembly. the other is a switch that is on the inide of the unit just behind the user control. i do stress that, if you pull the outer cover off to access the inner switch, you need to be very careful about what you touch, and unplug the unit. there is a capacitor inside the unit that will shock you and it does hurt. the high voltage side of your microwave is about 20,000 volts
