Check the door safety intelock switch. You will have to remove the cover to find these micro switches (opposite the hinge side of the door). You will need to use a ohm meter to determine if they are working properly or not.
These switches tell the oven that the door is closed and when closed, it if OK to turn on the magnatron.

Remove the case and see if you can localize the smell. Likely suspects are a shorted high voltage diode (replace) or a shorted stirrer bearing (replace stirrer)--a fan-like device located within the sheet metal waveguide near where the microwaves enter the cooking cavity. Make sure to have a cup of cold water in the cooking cavity when looking for problems. The problem could also be the high voltage transformer or the high voltage capacitor, but these are more rare problems. There are no radiation problems with the case off, but there are high voltages associated with the magnetron and it's power supply.
The turntable is either plastic gear driven or uses a belt. either way, it's usually all non metallic due to the microwaves. you'll need to see if the motor that drives these are turning by removing the case. this can be EXTREMELY dangerous as the radiation from the cylstron tube. if it's a simple as a belt, the part can be replaced. good place to go is www.repairclinic.com
yes anything can be fixed but a do it yourselfer i reccomend against this cause thats a radiated element in the micro
recommend go out and purchase a replacement go with G.E. they have the 7 year warranty great little micro. too change out is easy
you have a bad turntable motor or a bad control board.. start with the motor 9 time out of 10 this is your problem.. you can pick up this part at your local parts house or order online.. look for universal part. this will be alot cheaper then the oem.. just take the screws out of bottom panel under microwave. panel will drop down. you will see little round motor about 2in' make sure unit is unplugged.
