The door switches are designed to prevent the unit from running while the door is open. You probably have a blown fuse, and it's a white or dark grey ceramic fuse of 15A or 20A, available from local big box stores or appliance parts stores. The fuse is usually located on the floor of the chassis behind the control panel, or mounted in the same area as the door switches. Also, I'm really curious how the door switch got stuck while cleaning? That sounds scary...

does it not light up at all? A microwave has a fuse on it. Probably accessible from the back panel. if not you would need to disassemble it. Most likely cause of this is slamming the door broke one of the safety switches the door has so the microwave knows when the door is open. And it shorted against something when it broke. It might have simply blew the fuse but then again you might have fried it.

The circuit is probably a 20Amp circuit (see the number stamped on the circuit breaker switch). Most likely, it is the same circuit as the refrigerator, crock pot, window A/C unit, etc....
Also, if you are using an extension cord or a power strip or a surge protector. Those may not have a high enough power rating.
One other possibility (not likely) is that the circuit breaker is a 15Amp and the microwave is 1500 watts.
What else is cut off when the circuit breaker is tripped?
Solution is to use a different outlet for the microwave, or turn off any other applicance in the same circuit (except the refrigerator, of course).
Hope this helps!
