Question about Maytag Microwave Ovens
Initially, the door would not stay closed. My husband opened door and found spring loose. He re-attached and one door will stay closed and we have a new problem. Now the light stays on and the turntable stays turning, but if we put a time and press start, nothing happens. We unplugged the microwave and hoping someone can tell us the part needed to replace and fix.
Either the latch in door (spring related) is not in the correct location or you have a door switch issue and its not expensive to fix if you husband is handy. Part number you can use is 28QBP0495 or the factory one 3405-001034 (more expensive). This issue is common and these switches are located inside the control panel on the left side, the switch you seek is the lowest one in the bracket of three. Good Luck and I hope this helps.

First of all, it's under warranty. So I would contact Maytag for a free fix.
For an out of warranty reply:
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.
If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.
The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

I see this all the time. In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man.
Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

SOURCE: I have a F6 error
F6 on these models means that the cook relay on the control circuit board is shorted, and it is cooking anytime the door is closed.
We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one-year guarantee.
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.
