A:

You could have a switch that is shorting out or you could also have a short in a number of other components inside the microwave. I do not recommend that you attempt to diagnose and repair this failure yourself. Microwave are inherently dangerous to service. They contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. An interlock switch test and microwave radiation shielding test must be performed on the unit before it can be safely returned to service after an internal component repair. These are the reasons why I recommend that you have the microwave serviced by a technician.
