Whirlpool Microwave Runs When Door Is opened.

Our Whirlpool countertop microwave model MT4155 has started to run when the door is opened. After heating something, the microwave turns off as normal. However, when we push the button to open the door, the microwave starts running again. It doesn’t do it every time but probably 75% of the time. Sometimes pushing the button again several times might turn it off. Also, pushing the stop button sometimes will turn it off. If it still continues to run, hitting the side of the microwave near the control panel will cause it to stop. I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem and found a fix for it. Thanking you in advance for any help you can provide.

That is a fairly common problem with that unit.
My recommendation is to replace the microwave.
