This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.
Sometimes this will also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.
If you wait too long for the repair, other parts can short, destroying the microprocessor (as shown in the second photo) and rendering the oven dead.

You may have a bad keypad, which in many cases can be replaced.
A bad keypad may be worn out due to age, damaged, or it may have gotten wet or otherwise contaminated.
Moisture and contamination can be caused by not using the fan when boiling on the stove top (for over the range models), direct spraying of cleaners, by storing the microwave in an unheated garage or shed, or infestation.
I warn my customers to never spray cleaner directly onto the microwave keypad, since the liquid can get inside and "lock up" or even ruin the keypad or controller.
