Re: my microwave shuts off after a few mins. of use

There seems to be a rash of these units failing in this way due to bad magnetrons. The magnetrons normally have a warranty that runs for a few years. In some models, they have a whole kit they replace, consisting of a new magnetron, stirrer, and high-voltage rectifier diode. I would call GE Customer Relations with your model and serial numbers to see if yours is affected. They're at 1-800-386-1215 (8-6 ET). I would also suggest you ask them for a referral to a GE-authorized servide center in your area. Good luck. I appreciate your thoughtful rating of this answer.
