Question about Microwave Ovens
May 24, 2017 - It may be a shorting relay on the the control board, or a problem with one of the door switches or its mount.
I regularly repair these microwave controllers and details are here.
I would need the FCC ID number off the model tag to look up the schematic.
It's best to follow up with me directly.

SOURCE: Over the range microwave
I have the R-1460 in the same series with the identical symptoms. After reading MicrowaveSvc's solution I started taking apart to view the door switches and found the upper door switch to be the problem, but not a switch failure a support failure. A small bottom plastic support post that holds the switch in place was broken (probably from repeated use/abuse) allowing the switch to move when the door hooks were engaged, thus not actuating the button switch. Since the problem was mechanical rather than an electrical bad switch, I made a small support arm for the switch from an old plastic mechanical pencil and glued it in place to hold the switch in its correct position. Problem solved, microwave works! Thanks to MicrowaveSvc's description of door switches.

This may have already been dealt with, but others can benefit from an accurate, thoughtful reply to this problem.
Is it possible that some spray cleaner got into the controls?
I always recommend that users instead spray cleaner on a soft cloth then wipe the control panel.
Also, I always recommend non-ammonia cleaners since ammonia can crack and damage plastic.
Otherwise, the spray can get into the controls and lock it up or make it act odd.
If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.
The keypad may be damaged or worn out, or control unit may be damaged.

OK, you will need to replace the magnetron and the touch pad as well. this will fix this issue.
