When door is shut light is still on and wont operate

The switch is either broken and stuck in the on position or the pin on the door that pushes the switch to the closed position has been worn or broken. Check the alignment of the door to make sure that it is closing correctly.

Wont turn off

This is either a sticking relay, in which case you'd need circuit board repair, or a sticking door switch or defective door switch mount.

The door wont stay shut, the microwave works if I hold the door shut, I think it is the latches

The door is probably out of adjustment. Remove it from the power source.
Remove the top cover and examine the door catch housing. There usually are a couple of screws clamping this in place, loosen the screws, shut the door and tighten the screws.
Finaly, check the hinge for clearance, (No more than 1/10th inch), and adjust as needed.
Hope that helps.

Hi I have a new Kenmore microwave model 721.8503 - it is a month old and wont turn on.. I close the door and the light stays on and it wont work..the door is completely shut

It sounds like the light switch isn't being deactivated which is preventing the microwave from operating (a failsafe).
Look to see that the buttons inside the microwave (where the latches are inserted when you close the door) are actually being pressed.
They may be out of place, obstructed, or your latches on the door may be damaged.
If you don't see anything wrong, try pressing the buttons yourself (with a pen bottom) to see if the light goes off.
