It is a failure of the front loading latch protect switch which can be short. Normally only when the door latches the circuit is through to the main circuit.
hence a possible leaf switch that could have been stuck on could be the main issue.
Open cover and check at the pointt of the door switch latch.
Hope this helps.

I purchased a microware (WMH2175XBV-2) and wish for a better manual. What came with this item is lowsey. Can I get something better?

Well unfortunatly the Owners manual you found enclosed in the Packageing is more than likely the same thing that they Publish on their website, but Click Here to find the online resources for the model number that is almost the same as yours I believe you somehow switched the B and V because they have no model number the same as yours, also I had some trouble opening the english version of the PDF Owner manual but the Spanish opened the first try, the english version did open after 4 or 5 trys.

Good Luck and Thumbs up if Helpful!!!
Feedback is Appreciated!

The "start" area on front

Well there is not much one can do to fix that problem than replacing the touch pad, you can try to clean the underneath the pad if there is any build up of dust as such.

MIcrowave runs with the door open also

your door switch is mis-adjusted,furthermore the other safety switch on the door should have blown the power fuse in the unit,because by design for safety it produces a short circuit if door opens under operation,so if door was taken off and replaced it was not adjusted properly

I don´t know how but it turned on after a while and until now is working good. Maybe it turned off when I was using a lot the microware. Anyway thank you very much.

OK, I'm no handy man and I just figured out how to do this. Open the door and remove the black plastic cover surrounding the inside glass. I used a regular flat head screw driver to pop this out.

Now I removed the 3 screws holding the inner panel against the glass on the front door. After removing the screws, the inner panel is held in place by a series of plastic clips. Go around the perimeter and pop the plastic clips out so the inner panel including the mesh comes out of the door.

Now you have complete access to clean the inside of the glass door!

I found it easier to do this operation with the door completely off the microwave, but you should be able to do this with the door in place too.
