There are several parts which can cause the unit to be dead, mainly the fuse, thermostat, thermal cutout, or control panel. You can find critical safety info and disassembly tips ay my site via my listing here: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can get handy exploded views and order any neededparts here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 Not sure about that model number though - you might want to verify that.

SOURCE: The power is not on anymore.
It ended up being just a $2.50 fuse. Thats all. Glad I didn't have to pay someone $80 to walk through the door and tell me that. Don't you hate that!

Chances are that the thermostat / thermal cutout / T.C.O. (whichever it uses) has opened.
This can happen when the magnetron overheats, either due to it's failing, or if the internal cooling fan is not working.
It may also that be the 15- or 20A ceramic line fuse or the oven cavity thermostat / thermal cutout / T.C.O. (whichever it uses) has opened.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
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.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.
You should be able to get the fuse from a home center or local appliance parts store.
Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.
If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

I have model GE Microwave serial # JVM2070SK02. I start to cook something and it shuts off 5~10 seconds. Keyboard is still lit up, but no clock, fan, light and you cannot operate anything on the key pad. Unplug the unit and it resets. Sometimes it cooks, sometimes it doesn't? It is getting more frequent with the shutting down problem?
