It may be a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel, such as a sticky relay.
I would suspect a sticky relay first, but the door switches should be checked.

It's one of the micro-switches (3) that are part of the interlocking safety circuit. I actually took my switch apart and fixed it, but 99% of those out there would (and should) replace the switch.

Thanks for the photo of the label!
It shows the FCC ID number, which I used to find schematics at the FCC Web site.
The problem is a shorted primary interlock switch.
This is the door switch which has two black wires connected to one terminal and a black and a blue wire connected to the other

Check the door safety interlock switches. If they are burned (because you frequently open the door while the oven is running) they tell the magnatron that the door is open (forget what you know about the door) and not to run that magnatron (which produces the microwaves that actually heat the contents of your oven).
Check the switches with a ohm meter. Remove the cover to find the switches near the door latches.
