Question about Whirlpool WMH1163XVS Microwave Oven
When the door is open the interior light and relay activate off and on rapidly
first thing I would suggest is a hard
reset. Unplug the unit for a
minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.
If it still fails, please post a new help request with the full model number from the tag in or on the unit.

SOURCE: Door opener not working
The door latch must have broken in side which had stucked the door does not allow to open. Please arrange to call service engineer from the maufacturer's service center to fix the problem as proper alignment of the latches is must for safety measures.

The capacitor and diode will not cause the problem you describe. You will not be able to measure the diode with an ohmmeter, the forward breakdown is about 5-6Vdc. The normal failure mode for the capacitor is a short which will blow the fuse.
If any high voltage components go bad, the microwave will operate normally just not heat.
You should focus on the door interlock switches and safety thermostats, especially the cavity thermostat located somewhere on the top of the cavity.
To make a high voltage diode tester, wire up a 9V battery, LED and a 220 ohm resistor. Hooked up one way the LED will light reverse the connection the LED will not light.
If you need further assistance, let me know
