Typical of a control microchip failure caused by a power surge. With a microwave as old as yours, it is safest to simply replace the entire oven rather than attempt to fix it, as older magnetrons are likely to fail.
No, not with the same mounting hardware. You have to replace everything. I recommend Panasonic first if you can find it in a hanging hood model, Whirlpool second. Make sure you also install a 2000 joule or larger surge protector. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
You should be able to contact GE and see if they have a "drop-in" replacement for your model.

Disconnect from electricity. Remove screws holding outer casing and you will see the inline fuse. Make sure there is nothing that will cause the fuse to blow again. Always replace the outer cover before testing.
I would check the area around the ceiling of the microwave.
There may be grease of other food buildup on the waveguide cover.
Or the stirrer may be sticking or arcing, which would need to be replaced.
This unit may be subject to post-manufacturing modifications, requiring a few new parts.

If they cover the cost of parts, great.
