May be an issue with the magnetron tube.

VERY BAD LUCK. Cost wise you might as well replace the unit. Try a Panasonic brand, mine is 15 years old as was the last one before that, very durable.

Door switches, diode pack, capacitor or magnetron.

I would first be sure the internal cooling fan is working. If not, when the magnetron overheats, its thermostat will kill all power until it cools back down.

Also, if the RF gasket somehow fell off or was left off the new magnetron, that can make it "noisy," meaning it will emit RF noise which will disrupt the microprocessor and it will act weird and shut down when you try to cook.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

You either have a shorting membrane keypad or there is grease or moisture on the control board.

The only real issue with the control board that could cause that is a failing relay or bad connection, both of which I can repair on a control board for $54.95, which includes insured return shipping.

The first thing I would do is test the outlet. A toaster or hair dryer are good devices to use.

A microwave must be on its own breaker, or at least not on the same breaker as a high-current device (stove) or a device that causes spikes on the line (fridge, freezer).

It's possible you have a failing magnetron or high-voltage transformer, but I would need to discuss it to narrow it down.

This is odd. Normally it would only run with door closed? Is that what you mean?

There is a door interlock switch that should stop the oven if the door is opened.

THIS IS A DANGEROUS ITEM IF IT OPERATES with the door open.
