Question about GE Profile Spacemaker Over-the-Range Microwave
The vent, boost, and light buttons have pushed into the microwave and no longer work. How do I remove the faceplate and switch?
SOURCE: Vent fan noise
I'd say the bearings are getting dry. I'd hit it with a a drop of 3-in-1 oil or sewing machine oil. If you don't have the owner's manual, you can download one here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ It's also possible that the keeper which holds the fan blade assembly may be broken or loose. That could cause the fan to slip and rub. Either way it will have to be disassembled to a degree, probably starting with removal of the grille. Exploded views of this model may be helpful. They can be found at this site: http://www.geappliances.com/shop/prts/ Under 1 select "Repair Part", under 2 select "Microwave" and click "Go". A window will pop up and you'll enter your (complete) model number. Good luck.

I'd first check to be sure the grease filter is clean, the duct work is not clogged, and the outside vent is not home to an animal's nest.

Sadly, GE does not make individual parts available for these controllers, so they cannot be repaired.
You have to replace the control panel sub-assembly (part number WB07X10733 in your case) and the best price I've found on that is $370.32 here (compared to $483.25 direct from GE).
In my opinion, this does not do much to inspire brand loyalty...
Or you may be able to find a whole oven on eBay for about that or less.
Sorry to bear bad news. Good luck.
