The microwave keeps stopping

If you are actually selecting heating time rather than pushing the "quick heat" button, the control board may be defective.

Just start 15 minutes and then stop

Pull the cover if necessary to see if the fan is spinning. If it's running 15 seconds, your door switches are probably ok, and the touchpad is working, main fuse ok. All that leaves is the circuit board and the magnetron.
Personally, I prefer microwaves with twist timers, not touch pads. A lot less to go wrong.

If the timer counts down and nothing else happens, the secondary interlock switch is bad. This switch completes the cook circuit and this is why it doesn't run. You need an ohm meter to diagnose and find the right switch. Switch failure is caused by opening the door when it is in cook mode. Push the stop button first before opening the door and this failure will cease to occur. BE CAREFUL !!

Vent blower won't stop

I had the same problem with the fan not wanting to shut off after the repair. Once I set the clock though I was able to push the button to shut the fan off. So try setting your clock first and see if that helps.
