SOURCE: Microwave works with door open
If the top is open, the upper door switch should be open and the high voltage section should not be energized. That's the way it's *supposed* to work. But that buzzing is worrysome! Does the turntable turn during this condition? Does the inside light come on? How about the fan? If not, then I would doubt that it's cooking. If so, some models will do this. It's not uncommon to notice that the fan and light will try to come on for a split second when you shut the door. This would not indicate a problem. It has to do with the timing of the door switches and a replay on the board. If it's still under full warranty, it wouldn't hurt to call a GE-authorized servicer.

SOURCE: Won't shut off
Chances are you have a shorted door switch, but all owners of a GE WES model might want to look at this blog post.
If it's been less than 30 days since you bought it, I'd hurry and take it back to the dealer for a refund, not an exchange.
Otherwise, GE Customer Service is here.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: fan runs when door is closed
This is an interlock issue or a faulty temperature sensor. Both will require the outer casing to be removed for inspection. Basic tests can be done with a continuity tester or cheap digital multimeter with resistance checking facilty (Radioshack)
The sensors for these types of fans are normally attached to the roof of the cooking cavity, little silver components with two or more wires.
Check these out with a meter if any are open circuit then they need to be replaced.
