Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

This is actually quite a common problem and it means that one of your door switches has failed inside the microwave. There are 3 door switches so you'll need to test them all to determine which one is faulty. Below is a link to a video that shows you how to test the door switches. The faulty door switch will obviously need to be replaced.
