I would first suggest unplugging the oven for a few minutes to give it a reset. On Whirlpool brand microwaves, you will hear a series of beeps when you hit START if one of the following is true: - the control panel is not programmed correctly - the door is not shut - there is a problem with the door latch system - there is a problem with the control panel If you do not have your owner's manual, you can download it here: http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/literature_search_results.jsp?searchTerm=RMC275PD#literror It doesn't sound like the control panel is locked. When the control panel lock is activated, you will see "Loc" and a lock symbol in the display and only the clock, timer, and oven light will operate. If that does not solve the problem, then you have oneof the other problems as listed above. If you need further help, please reply / add a comment here.

You probably have a failing door switch or the mount which holds your door switch is loose or broken. In most designs, it is the upper door switch that will produce these very symptoms when it is intermittent or its mount is broken or loose. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure. Slamming the door, damage during shipping or transportation and sloppy manufacturing techniques or materials are the primary causes of trouble with the door switch mounts. I have a text file called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems, and a file called "safety.txt" which is of vital importance.

SOURCE: Microwave Door Switch Problem?
That model number has too many digits after the JVM. Could it be JVM1339BW02 or JVM1339BW002?
If one is bad, it's probably the bottom switch, whose wiring goes back to the power relay, thermostat, or fuse, depending on eact model.
The switch with thin wires going to a ltitle connector on the board is the door sense switch. That's not likely your culprit.
I usually recommend you replace them all while you're at it.
It sounds like it may actually be a loose or misaligned door or door switch mount.

GE models have a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. Handy in troubleshooting.

If you see no removable panel inside the cavity, it will be necessary to remove the housing to replace the bulb. Because of the nature of microwave energy, the fewer sharp edges and other irregularities in the cavity, the happier the magnetron is since all those have some effect on the distribution of the energy and efficiency of the unit. That's why one should avoid having any larger metallic container in a microwave. Using aluminum foil to prevent the drying out of certain types of foods is permissible because the ratio between moisture content of the food and the reflection of energy caused by the foil is not significant and the energy is mostly absorbed instead of reflected.
