you will have to replace the microwave, sounds like a burned out magnetron, replacing the magnetron is almost as expencive as a new oven...

Usually, power for the turntable motor and the magnetron tube (the microwave source) are controlled by a couple of things. One is a relay on the control circuit board, and the other is a switch that's operated by one of the door latches. It's possible the control board has gone bad or bad connections have developed. It's also possible the door switch has failed or is out of adjustment and the oven thinks the door isn't closed.
Diagnosing this kind of trouble may require working on the oven while it's operating. MICROWAVE OVENS USE HAZARDOUS VOLTAGES WHICH CAN KILL YOU. You might want to leave the repair to a professional because of safety concerns. Unless the circuit board requires replacement, it's probably worth having this repaired. Unlike some repairs, this one won't cost as much as a new oven.

GE Will replace the magnetron for 9 years! Mine is a 2004 model with a one year warrently according to manual. HOWEVER they did say the magnatron was covered for nine years: call 888-239-6832. When I called they said thats all they get calls for and would send out in 3-5 days. NO CHARGE. I had to ask if there was coverage longer than a year on major parts and that's when they offered the info and I eventually was transferred to the right office. Saved $120 bucks on parts alone.

The issue is with the door switch or the thermostat located near the turntable motor is bad and should be replaced. If it was the fuse the unit will not even work, so I believe it is the door switch and I don't think that the control can go bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The problem is caused by a bad magnetron, inverter board, "7 years old or less" and possibily the keypad control board.
