It sounds like you may have had an issue with a high voltage part such as the magnetron, diode, or transformer. It's also possible that you had an arcing stirrer. I would also check to see if your model is covered by / affected by this bulletin: If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (without the suffix) here:

My kitchen aid microwave makes a loud crackling noise every once in awhild

Is it a carousel (turning platter)? if it is, than it is probably dirt on the platter support wheels and the platter support groove/track on the bottom of the oven, clean the glass plate, the support wheels, and the bottom groove as well, if you want to make sure the crackling comes from the carousel system, take it all out (support and platter) than place a glass of water in the oven and start it, if there are no crackling noise than my theory is correct, if the noise is still there than have it checked by a professional technician...

Rattling, crackling type noise just started and is constant when microwave is running.

A couple of months ago my microwave started making crackling, rattling and grinding sounds everytime i used it and i thought it was going to break down. It turned out one of my children must have spillled or overflowed something with a clear liquid because the micro did not look dirty but there was a crunchy substance under the wheels of the turntable. Once i cleaned this up totally the noises all went away.

GE PEB1590 microwave oven. Interior light burned

Remove the screws from around the rear of the oven and slide the cabnet off to the rear. You should be able to access the bulb from here.
WARNING: any time you work on a microwave you have to be careful of the capacitor. Unpluge the microwave and discharge the capacitor with a large screwdriver with a plastic handle.
Be careful.

This model does not list Stainless Steel as a feature. Stainless Steel is used in the interior (CAVITY) of a Microwave if it is a Combination Convection/Microwave Oven. The Convection Oven can reach temperatures of 400+ degreesF. This Temperature would MELT the paint off a painted interior.
Stainless Steel can be tested with a Magnet. It will not be attracted or "Stick" to Stainless.
Hope this answers your concerns!

GE over the range microwave making grinding noise

This sounds like the stirrer. If it sticks or stops, the microwaves can damage or destroy it. You may have a bad stirrer or magnetron. There is an important bulletin that covers these problems. To see if yours is covered, see: If you need more help, please follow-up.
