Question about Microwave Ovens
Wife was heating a cup of coffee, she opened the door there was in a noise and the door popped open
Possible that the lock was broken and so the door opened. You can remove the front panel and check for broken plastic or nylon pieces which can be glued using instant adhesive.
Reset the lock and switch and the door must lock in correctly

First of all, it's under warranty. So I would contact Maytag for a free fix.
For an out of warranty reply:
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.
If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.
The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

We also have this full service manual at our site: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/R1480_R1481_R1482_sm.pdf
Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Looking at the schematic in the service manual here, I would say relay RY6 on the small sub PCB (relay board) has shorted contacts.
That's the relay that runs both the fan and turntable.
It's possible that it may be a bad connection or driving component on that board, but in my experience, it's virtually always a stuck relay.
The part number on the relay as shown in the photo is hard to read, but it looks like "OJ-SH-112LM".
I should have one of these or I can point you to one if you want to contact me with the exact number.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

When door open the microwave should not work at all, if the turntable and light come on with the door open , if they do , then this is an additional problem with door switch and must be fixed.
Regarding humming noise and no heath, Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.
If it additionally does not spin and no light, then check also the door switch.
The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.
All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.
Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.
Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.
Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).
