I assume you're talking about the hood fan which ventilates the cook top and blows air through the grille across the top. If so, it's okay to use the microwave with that not working, but if you boil something on the stove, an external fan is definitely needed to keep mositure from going up into the microwave controls. If the cooling fan INSIDE the microwave (behind the keypad) is not working, then you do NOT want to run it unit it is fixed. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

You are correct the fan motor is either stuck or needs replaced.
There is no way to do this without removing the entire microwave. In case your not familiar with how microwaves work, there is a capacitor that is very large inside and can hold a charge even after it is unplugged for up to 24 hours, please take action to prevent getting shocked.

You have a shorting membrane keypad.
If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.
So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please include your full model number from the tag in or on the unit) for a free estimate and free tips & do-it-yourself advice.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: microwave just stopped cooking!
there could be two problems with your microwave. your diode could be bad or your magnetron is no good. Its definitely one of the 2. most likely the magnetron. if the microwave is more than 5 years old, and it is the magnetron i would suggest that you replace the microwave. if you would like instructions on how to change the magnetron or diode let me know and i'll walk you thru it. although i do recommend u let a professional take a look at it.
