There is a short either in the keypad or the power board. Unfortunately parts for this one are not available anymore. If you could get the parts it would cost you well over $100 and would be a better idea to replace the microwave. If this only happens when you add time then I would just use the microwave without using that option. Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.

It sounds like your magnetron is overheating and its thermostat is resetting.
Try it with a cup of water in one corner and see if that helps.
Otherwise, most manufacturers have a warranty of several years on the magnetron.

It sounds like the keypad is worn out. The fact that you can get them to work sometimes by what direction you push on them, tells me that the contacts are not working correctly.
Did you have this problem prior to the fuse blowing or did it start after you replaced the fuse?
I don't believe the fuse blowing is related to the keypad problem. I also don't believe that you have a microprocessor problem because you say that the function buttons work but the number keys don't work right. If the microprocessor was faulty, it would not be able to read any of the keys.
The fact that the number keys are not working doesn't surprise me. When you go to cook something, you will press the number keys several times, while only pressing start or stop once. This is why your number keys have worn out first. These keys have a limited number of cycles (presses) and it sounds like its time for a new keypad.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

That would most likely be a shorted high voltage capacitor but it may be a shorted high voltage transformer, or possibly a magnetron whose filament is shorted to the case.
Some Samsung / GE's normally have a delay of about 2 seconds from the time you press Start to the time the high voltage section gets powered up.
It happens in about 2-3 seconds after Start, I would suspect the capacitor.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:
