First of all, it's under warranty. So I would contact Maytag for a free fix.
For an out of warranty reply:
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.
If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

First, is the internal cooling fan running when you cook?
The cooling fan (not to be confused with the hood / exhaust / vent fan) is critical to keeping the magnetron from overheating.
The magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.
Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.
This can be due to a failed cooling fan or a failing magnetron.
One way to test this is to place a cup of water inside and cook on the lowest power setting for 2 minutes and see if it makes it all the way through.
Then try it again on full power.
If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.
If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
We even have a video on our site that shows you how to safely & easily remove the control panel assembly in less than 5 minutes so you can check out your oven.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

E-13 - T1 Max time error (oven did not preheat properly). PCB assembly may need reset or may be bad.
The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.
If that doesn't work,leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.
Otherwise, Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty.I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Okay, that loud humming sound you are hearing is coming from the unit trying to energize the magnetron. Depending on how old your oven is, it could be still under warranty (this is covered under the warranty, trust me). If it is an older oven, like 2 years or more, you can bring it to an appliance repair facility and instruct them to replace the magnetron.
I am telling you to take it to a facility because you as a consumer cannot buy a magnetron...the federal government will not allow appliance companies to sell them to you.

I would suspect the power control board which is item #2 on the diagram.
