    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

Hi,

When the door get closed, sometimes it turns on and starts running
Without pushing the start button?

it says door not locked
That's unusual...most just won't go...most don't "lock"

Door switch, door catch, door latch, PCBoard...broken, loose, burnt...would have to be investigated.

Definetly check the door switches/door catches first....if ok the smart board and/or key panal would then be the prime suspect.
