I'm thinking that the circuit board has a problem. I doubt it will work but disconnect all the connectors on the board...with the power off and reconnect. It may clean off some goo. If not, use your method as long as it will work and then consider a new board.

it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty.
I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.
If you don't have warranty coverage for some reason:
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or occasionally a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.
Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.
The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.
Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.
One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.
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:.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

SOURCE: Microwave will not heat food.
Sometimes inside the machine there is a fuse for this, if you can remove the outer case you should be able to see it, HOWEVER let me tell you that i have been in this position and have replaced the fuse and the machine then works only to die again, once this happens it is usally a sign that either the tube or a transformer is gone and it normally isnt worth getting fixed.

If you're saying that some digits or segments on the display do not light up, then I would first suspect grease or moisture on the control circuit board.
If it's just that some pads on the keypad will not respond, I would say your membrane keypad is failing.
I would first give it a "hard reset" by unplugging it for 2 minutes, then trying it again.
If it still fails, I would remove the control panel assembly (see the disassembly video here) and inspect the circuit board for green, gray, or white residue or grease.
The membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, but comes already installed on a new control panel frame, which is part number 5304464130 which you can order from the Pros here.
To replace that, you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move your circuit board into your frame.
If you need more help, feel free to contact us directly.

Hey JT Tai, I appreciate your post!
The symbol at the top left hand side of your display could be child lock symbol or vent symbol. If it is the child lock you should be able to press and hold the stop/cancel button down for 3 seconds to release the child lock.
If the light is on for the vent I would seek assistance from a professional for proper diagnosis and repair to be completed on your microwave. I hope this is helpful. -Matt
