Controller is confusedA
power surge or random non-reproducible action of the universe may have
resulted in the controller's program ending up in an infinite loop. Pull
the plug for a minute or two to reset it.
Defective Interlock switchesThis can result in the controller thinking the door is open and ignoring you.
solutions (spray cleaner) may have gotten inside and shorted out the
touchpad or controller. If this happens remove the touchpad, let it air
dry for a few days, and then attach it back on the microwave.
Unplug the microwave oven from the surge protector and plug it directly into a working outlet. If the microwave now works you will know that it is the surge protector that is not working. If the microwave still doesnt work you may want to trash it and just get a new one as they are now much cheaper, many around 50 dollars, and more efficiently use power.
Microwaves use a special ceramic fuse that has probably been popped by
the outage. You have to take the cover off and it looks just like
the regular cylindrical glass fuse except this one is white instead of
clear. I think radio shack has them. Hopefully the fuse
stopped the power surge before it got the front panel controls.
