Question about GE Microwave Ovens
If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty and the the manufacturer will fix it free.
They may want you to carry it in to the shop, or they may provide in-home service, depending on the terms of your warranty, found in your owner's manual.
GE Customer Service is here and they should be able to give you info on the nearest GE-authorized servicer.
While you're waiting to get that sorted out, you can check to be sure the outlet is fine.
If so, and it's still dead, it may be the fuse, which is usually located behind the grille or on the floor of the oven behind the control panel or between the door switches.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
