So your issue means that microwaves are escaping and confusing the control board. You can try replacing the control board and that will deffinately fix the problem as many times control boards become less resilient to microwaves, or you can try something out. Sometimes if you place a sheet of aluminum foil inside a sandwich plastic bag and place it BEHIND the control panel between all internal components and the control board itself this will stop enough of the microwaves from interfering with the control board. If that works, then you need to replace the magnetron---otherwise if the problem persists you need to replace the control board.
