We see this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.
This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

It sounds like the keypad is worn out. The fact that you can get them to work sometimes by what direction you push on them, tells me that the contacts are not working correctly.
Did you have this problem prior to the fuse blowing or did it start after you replaced the fuse?
I don't believe the fuse blowing is related to the keypad problem. I also don't believe that you have a microprocessor problem because you say that the function buttons work but the number keys don't work right. If the microprocessor was faulty, it would not be able to read any of the keys.
The fact that the number keys are not working doesn't surprise me. When you go to cook something, you will press the number keys several times, while only pressing start or stop once. This is why your number keys have worn out first. These keys have a limited number of cycles (presses) and it sounds like its time for a new keypad.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

SOURCE: Maytag microwave just died.
Take it back to the store and make them do something about them. If they dont then file a complaint with the BBB no reason for you to have to deal with this when it is there problem. It sounds like there is a venting issue and more going on

It could be that the fan button is sticking or a contact has welded itself closed therefore its getting power all the time.
