So this is a confusing issue if you've never seen it before but a fairly common issue for technicians like myself to see. The problem is that your microwave thinks one of the door switches has failed. There are 3 door switches in total. These are safety switches to make sure the door is shut since it can be so dangerous to run a microwave when the door is open. One of these 3 door switches has failed and will need to be replaced or if all 3 switches happen to check good then you just have a bad relay on your display control board. Below is a video of how to test the door switches if you have a multimeter. If they all check good, then replace the display board.

this fixes the microwave problem of why the microwave is getting so hot ?

hello
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 5 months ago

Only if the microwave is running when you don't have it turned on. Nothing can cause the microwave to get too hot unless there isn't enough food to microwave inside. Keep in mind, the rack should NEVER be inside the microwave unless you're cooking multiple plates/tiers of food.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
