Switch is inside so remove sheet metal. switch is on right side front and usually mounted with screws. Some are soldered to a circuit board. Remove switch and replace. Might have to move mechanism out of the way to install sw. There are numbers on the switch so you can find a replacement.

SOURCE: microwave will not turn on.
Bad switch alignment. Some models can have an adjustment. Look carefully at the latch for any sign of damage. There are three switdhes that must simultaneously be activated, or the oven won't work. If, during the operation of the oven, the door is opened and the switches DONT simultaneously trigger, the monitor switch will detect this condition and short the incoming power directly to ground, which will blow the internal fuse, and possibly also trip the circuit breaker.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
you will have to contact a service company, microwaves are complex. if you order a part and try to fix, their are no returns. plus lg parts take a long time to get, and then way the cost of repair.
Microwaves must be serviced by technicians due to the inherent dangers involved in repairing these appliances. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even though the unit is completely unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any internal component repair.

You almost certainly have a bad membrane keypad.
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.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs nationwide.
But please note that for some GE models, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.
In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.
Either way, we can let you know what your options and costs would be and send you other helpful info.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

Door switches should not effect the control panel. It sounds like you need to replace the control panel.
