We had the same problem and fixed it! Try hitting Pause/Cancel button until it shows zero on the display. Then press Kitchen Timer button and input 1:00. Then press start. Our microwave began working after trying that. Hope it works for you!

is due to a defective or loose magnetron causing electrical
interference and disruption in the control circuit board.
If your magnetron was recently replaced, it may have loose mounting nuts or bolts or maybe the wire mesh RF gasket was not installed or got pinched.
It may also need a new high-voltage diode and stirrer, and the cavity may be affected.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

I have the same "SE" problem. After reading this thread here, I realise it's likely the keypad problem, which explains the microwave's behaviour (no key was working).
So there were two possibilities. (1)keypad failure and (2) bad connection.
Obviously the easiest thing I could start with is to clean the connection. So I first take the cover off. Behind the keypad is a circuit board. In addition to a few connections between the circuit board and other parts of the microwave, there is a ribbon connecting the keypad to the circuit board.
Loose the plastic on the connection, pull the ribbon out from the socket. I then used spirit to clean the exposed copper connections. Put every thing back to place.
Voila, it's working again and we have been living happily ever after.....

The SE indicates a short in the keypad membrane, but to cure this! the whole keypad control board should be changed if effort to resolve is decided, I would also suggest checking the pricing.
