due to the fact that micowaves produce extreme amounts of high range rayons the units are constructed with several safety features one of the main ones being twin micro switches built into the door latching. when the door is open it sends a signal to the microwave to stop working so unless both latches are in place and strike the switches the unit will think the door is open and not respont to cook. you will have to have the door latch replaced parts are available form www.kenmore.com as well as ebay and as close as your local reapir shop.
I wonder if you've had trouble with the cooktop lights recently?
We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which
we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one year
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.
This can often also affect the exhaust fan, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.
Details of our service are at
our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical
over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This is a pretty bad design, sometimes you can just remove the upper grill and access the light assy. If the panel is to tight to work in to change the light,you get to take the whole micowave down and remove the outer wrapper to change the light bulb. This is also not a standard bulb (part #WB25X10019). You may be able to get one from Lowes or Home Depot actually Sears would be a better bet, otherwise you will need to order one from an appliance parts outlet. Hope this helps and sorry I didn't design the thing I just fix them.
The megatron tube is not working. The microwave should turn off when the door is opened for safety. If it is still under warranty, return it. If not, you may consider replacing the unit. I know its expensive, but its just taking up cabinet space tonight.
The problem appears, at least in part, to the door latch circuitry which cannot be serviced by the owner. If the unit is still in warranty, call GE customer care. If not, replacing the unit is your best bet. I just bought a new GE 1100 watt oven with great features for less than $100 If the door dosen't latch correctly, you could be exposed to dangerous microwave energy.
What's happening is you are activating one door switch a little before the other, and that is causing your light, fan, and turntable to come on.
The plastic parts are not perfectly rigid, so they flex a little when you press the button, and that causes the lag to be more apparent.
Even if you press the door open faster and look really close, you may notice the light, fan, and turntable coming on for a split second.
That's perfectly normal.
The relay on the control board must also be turned on before it will actually be cooking.
