This is most likely because of a faulty interlock monitor switch, operated by the door latch. If it thinks you're running the oven with the door open it will cause the fuse to blow (or trip a circuit breaker in your case). The switch may be bad (not opening as it should when the door is closed) or out of adjustment.
The switch is replaceable and it's not a costly part. You should have microwave service done by a professional, especially if it involves the door. There are potentially lethal voltages present with the cover off, and the possibility of microwave leakage is the repairs aren't dome properly.
Hope this gets you cooking again. Thanks for using Fixya!

try locating the primary door sensor. this is probably burned. replace the door sensor with appropriate amp rating - usually 16A (or higher) 123vac
