It sounds like the mount which holds tension on your door latch heads (door hooks) is broken. You can confirm that by pushing up on the door hook. If it goes up with no real resistance, the spring is unhooked. Fixing that would require disassembly of the door (by separating the panels) and repairing or replacing either the door hook assembly or the door panel inside.

Chances are your magnetron is overheating, activating the magnetron thermostat, which resets and restores power when it cools.
Your manual may call for you to put a paper plate under the popcorn bag to heat better and to protect the turntable. (And always place the food slightly off-center on the turntable, for the same reasons!)
You should first confirm that the outlet reads about 110-120 volts AC and that the microwave is on its own breaker. If a microwave shares a breaker with another high current device (or even lights) it can affect operation.
Then be sure the microwave's internal cooling fan is running.
If this is an over the range model, it will also have a exhaust hood vent fan which you can turn on and off at will, but this is not the fan I'm talking about.
The internal cooling fan should be on whenever the oven is cooking. If not, the magnetron can overheat and eventually be destroyed.
The next issue is how long you've had the oven.
If it's within the 30-day dealer exchange period, I'd take it back for a new one pronto.
If it's within the full warrranty period (usually 1 year) Daewoo's service center should fix it free.
You can visit Daewoo online or call them at 1-800-323-9668 or 1-800-553-4355 to find parts or find your nearest authorized service center to have them do the work.

The magnatron (heating element) is located in the cavity behind the control. If it's leaking microwaves onto the electronics, this will occur. This means the Mag should be replaced and a radiation test run on unit.

The F2 code is a keyboard failure. Since it's intermittent I would check for a loose wire/connection. open the control panel and reset the ribbon cable on the circuit board....

sounds like the cooling fan has came adrift or stopped working , this will cause the magnatron ( the microwave generator ) to overheat tripping the over temperature stat ,so fix the cooling , but be sooooooooooooo carefull in there , microwaves + really high voltages , not really a job for a non electrician/microwave tech
