You have a failed membrane keypad.

On this model, the keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would need to order a new control panel frame assembly, which comes with a new keypad already mounted on it.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame.

That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

It shut off as soon I push start on my new wave oven

Have you tried in in a different outlet??? Maybe too many things on the same breaker and it tripped??? Most microaves will draw about 12-13 amps, so depending on what size breaker you have it on you may not be able to have anything else on the same circuit.

Microwave lights up doesn't turn on

The part of the oven called the "magnetron" (this part is what creates/generates the microwave energy that heats the food or liquid) is burned out, the cost to repair is more this part is more than the cost to replace with the cost of Microwaves so depressed by the stagnant economy.

Galanz Microwave Model WP1000AL30 doesn't go on when the item buttons are pushed?

Does microvave button makes sound and when you start push button does the turn table moves.If yes for sound ,and no for turn table then you might have door switch which is either doesent latching or might broke.
open oven (be sure to discharge capacitors).
check its closing properly(the switch)
and use DMM to check resistance that it doesn't show OL

I have the same problem with ours! The light will come like it should but the microwave will not start until we hit the upper part of the door handle. Any advice?

After push START bottom,fuse has over current & fuse damaged

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead several seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.
