My Magic Chef microwave Model MC0160UB sometimes turns on by

Customer Question

My Magic Chef microwave Model MC0160UB sometimes turns on by itself. Pushing cancel or any other button does nothing to turn it off - I have to unplug it. At other times when I want to use it, I push buttons but there is no reaction/response.

does this happen all the time or just when you are cooking on the stove below?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
It happens very regularly and does not seem to have anything to do with cooking on the stove beneath - in fact, I think that the problem has always occurred while we were not using the stove top.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 7 years ago.
ok and is the microwave coming ON (counting down ,lights on turntable turning )or is it just the fan?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
The microwave does come on most of the time and it does count down. When I was talking about the fan, I was meaning the stove fan that is built in to this microwave. This is the type of microwave that is installed above a stove range. It has a built-in fan and light for aid cooking on the stove beneath it.
