Welcome and thank you for your question. I will be the professional that will be assisting you.
Hi, when this happens it means that one of the door switches has failed or is shorted. This unit has three door switches. It's usually the bottom switch that causes this issue. You can see the switches in the link below. #1445 and #1446.
You can check each switch with a meter for the proper continuity. One of them will be bad. The microwave will need to be unplugged before you attempt to access the switches. A microwave can hold lethal voltage even unplugged. To safely work on the microwave the high voltage capacitor should be discharged. The switches are on the low voltage side but to safely work on it the cap should be discharged.
