You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.
If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.
To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.
If yours is a GE, you can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
If yours is a GE, 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.
We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Possible bad heating element, You should remove the cover of the unit and look at the heating element with the power off. Until you get your problem resolved I would recommend not to even turn it on due to the fact that you are unsure what is going on and you smelt some burnt smell. Just for safety until you fine the problem

SOURCE: Everything works except heat
this is something you should probably call a repair technician for, due to the danger of the componentry.
Usually in ther case of this problem, even a technician will advise you to replace the unit, in the minds of cost effectiveness and safety...

If it is working but not heating, then test the high voltagecapacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine,test the control board.If turntable is not running check also the doorswitch.
The diodeandcapacitors can be tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge beforetesting, or you risk to get electrocuted, evenif power is off.Capacitorscan get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.
All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.
Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.
Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.
Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.
You can also order from MicrowaveSvc , they also provide parts.
