Question about Microwave Ovens
Please refer to this file first for important safety info: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
You'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover.
The installation instructions are very handy in this case, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here. (like JVM18##xx##)
Once you remove the outer cover, there will be a side panel which will have to be removed.
In general, there will be a lot of screws to remove during this job.

The magnetron may have either failed or
is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.
