Problem was due to a faulty door switch. Replaced with a new switch and the microwave now works fine! Only thing that was tricky was that LG uses the hex screws with a peg in the middle to keep the microwave cover on. Had to use a small screwdriver and pliers (on the screwdriver) to unscrew the screws.

The button that opened the door had plastic hooks break off.

I looked up the part number, with shipping it came to $16, and in one minute of installation time, I just gently pushed the button into the front using the original springs that pushed the button back out, and it just clicked into place, the microwave back in action.

i unplugged the unit,unscrewed the outer shell so that all the wiring and internal components were visible.starting at the first of three micro switches i removed the slip on terminals installed the alligator clips too the wires so the switch would now be bypassed.i made sure the wires and clips were not touching anything plugged unit in and it worked.i then installed the new switch and closed up the outer shell

The old button fell out because the "tabs" on the end of the posts that come out from the button had broken off. These "Tabs/posts" hold it in place - you'll see how when you look at it. All that was necessary was to put the springs from the old one onto the new one. Make sure to put the thing in right-side up; there are two "tabs/posts" on the top side, and one on the bottom. Gently slide it into position as nearly straight as you can, squeezing the "posts" until they clear the front of the opening. Continue to slide in EVENLY until you feel the part "click" into place. That's it! I recommend cleaning out the area fully before installation, with a a god household cleaner, and also putting a thin coat of some sort of lubricant on the part before you put it in. (You won't be able to do that after it's installed.)

Replaced Microwave Button with new button and hooks. Repaire took one min. by just pushing the new button on the Microwave and it hooked on and did not pop out. Good for another 4 years maybe!

I UNPLUGGED the microwave and removed the cover, using a phillips and a Torx screwdriver for the machine screws. I set these screws aside, so as not to confuse them with the later encountered screws. I photographed the magnetron to assure proper placement of the 6 phillips machine screws involved in reassembly (marking the the locations on the old magnetron would do as well. I marked the old magnetron "old", to avoid later confusion. I removed the two screws holding the shields to the magnetron. I removed 3 of the 4 screws holding the magnetron to the microwave, leaving one of the top screws. I held the magnetron securely and removed the last screw, pulling out a the part of the magnetron that penetrated the microwave. I installed the new magnetron in reverse order. One problem I encountered was locating one of the six screws, which had been pulled into the old magnetron by magnetism.

Had to lift on the door for the microwave to run, suspected the door switches.

Ordered the switches from Partselect, arrive in two days. Had trouble removing the plastic connectors from the old switch terminals, one of the plastic protectors broke, but was able to reuse it. It took a little figuring out how to remove the existing switches. Must push in a tab and rotate the switch on a little pin, then remove. Must be careful not to break the plastic tabs holding the switches in place. Replaced all (3) switches at the same time. All in all it was pretty easy.
