You probably have a failed thermistor / temperature sensor.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

It could be a flame sensor, which is a thermal switch located inside the cabinet on top of the cavity (there may be two of them). One power lead should go to the fuse, the other would go to the flame sensor. Remove the flame sensor and check for continuity. If it shows open (infinite resistance), put it in the coldest part of your freezer for a few minutes, then retest. If it now reads continuity (zero resistance), replace it, put the appliance back together, and see if it works.

There are replacable fuses inside. Taking the microwave apart requires removal of a lot of screws and the cover that can be rather bulky. make sure it's unplugged and safe before you begin. you can get replacement fuses at radio shack, ect. be sure to buy the same type and amperage. if the blow a second time there may be other issues.

Take the microwave back to where you got it, whatever is going on it should still be covered under warranty. it may just be a fuse but a warranty is a warranty. Make sure to take your manual with you just in case they give you any ****. Warranty is located on pg. 15?
