This is usually an indication of a bad door interlock. Take resistance readings with the power turned off on the primary and secondary interlocks. You will need to remove the control panel to access them. There should be a wiring diagram somewhere inside the control panel to assist you in determining if the interlock is normally OPEN, or normally CLOSED. As you open and close the door the interlock should change states. Additionally, double all your connectors to make sure they are plugged in correctly. I had a similar problem once and it turned out to be a loose connection on one of the interlocks. I hope this helps you.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.
Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

Most probable failure is this VERY expensive part:
This is what controls the Magnetron operation via the relay on the PCB. If the Magnetron is operational without programming it usually is the cause of the problem.
I would recommend that all wiring to the control board be verified before considering replacement of the board. The price of the board to me is off the charts in cost! Not sure what the original purchase cost was but the price of this board would make one consider unit replacement vs component replacement when you add in the cost of the service call.
I am sure this is not what you wanted to hear.
Thanks for using FixYa,
