First of all, it's under warranty. So I would contact Maytag for a free fix.
For an out of warranty reply:
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Depending on the model you may need a 15 or even up to a 20 amp circuit to operate the microwave. Check the installation instructions to be sure. What is most likely happening is the circuit in your home is not powerful enough to run the load of the microwave oven. If this is the case it could be dangerous. I would strongly recommend you have an expert examine the house wiring prior to starting the unit again.

If it goes dead for a
while during or after cooking
then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing
the magnetron thermostat to open.
Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.
An overheating magnetron can be due to:
It is vital that the cooling fan runs, or the magnetron will be destroyed. Repeated shutdowns like this are endangering the magnetron, assuming it's not bad already.
Your owner's manual will cover checking the filters and will cover warranty terms. The magnetron may still be covered.
