This will be either a faulty door interlock switch or High voltage component. You will need to remove the outer cover after first disconnecting power. Discharge the high voltage capactitor!
Check the door switches are operating correctly if so move on to the high voltage components starting with the transformer

If its mounted under your cupboard the screws are more than likely above the unit inside the cupboards.

Yes, I see and repair this controller problem on a regular basis. The total cost would be $54.95. See details, instructions, and forms at my site.

Yes, unless a technician may have removed it during a previous service. It should be located behind the controller assembly, sometimes in a small envelope.

At my Web site, I have a video showing you how to remove a typical microwave controller in about 5 minutes.

if you have other questions, please feel free to contact me directly by email through the Web site or at pupista@gmail.com

if the display does light up but it wont turn on,
Broken door switch, broken in the Open position.

But if there is no display at all (no clock, for example) then look at the power supply chain (including the fuse)

Here's the overview on fuse blows:

If the fuse blows as soon as you plug the oven in the wall, or when you open the door, the problem is likely with the door switches.

If the fuse blows as soon as you hit START, then it's likely that you have a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If the fuse blows a few seconds after you hit START, then it's likely that you have an overheating / shorting high-voltage transformer.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, troubleshooting info, door switch info, etc. at our site: http://www.microwavecontrol.com

Remove the control panel, take pictures of the door switch wiring while they are still connected to the door switches, then remove the door switch assembly. Have someone at the appliance store check each switch and repair the ones that are defective.

I purchased a switch for $7, reinstalled the door switch assembly and the microwave is working fine now.

Check the mains breaker as well. the wall switch is just for isolating power in the kitchen.
