SOURCE: Microwave runs when door open
This is probably a a bad door switch or door switch mount. Chances are only the fan and light are running when you open it, but better safe than sorry. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure but not the only one. I have a text file called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems, and a file called "safety.txt" which is of vital importance. You can find these files by searching at Yahoo.com (not Google) for this: microwave display safety.txt If you still have a problem, please write back with more detail. Be safe!

It may be that the magnetron is running a little hotter with a smaller load: Since fewer microwaves are being absorbed, more are being reflected back.
It may be a bad connection on the control board or a bad relay.
If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
If not, maybe you can keep a microwave-safe container inside with about 1/2 cup of water to "preload" it. Some people do that, especially when making popcorn.
