If door won't stay shut, it probably is a broken spring in the door. The door is only sold as a complete assembly and for $156 you're probably better off replacing the microwave.  If door will stay shut but you have to push on it to get it to work, you probably have bad door switch. Door switches are cheap and well worth repairing.
