Question about Microwave Ovens
PSB2201NSS 01 2009 model 12O VAC. ...
Yes, it is possible. And it's dangerous. If it isn't under warranty, or you can't have it repaired. I suggest unplugging it when it's not in use.

Remove the glass table and watch the drive spindle to see if it is turning when the unit runs; just put a cup of water so the magnetron is not without load, they can be damaged otherwise.
If it doesn't turn, gently try to turn the spindle with your fingers. If it turns manually, then the motor has failed. If it doesn't, then some foodstuff has managed to freeze the spindle.
In the latter case, pull the plug from the wall, use some foaming cleanser (it's less wet) and try to get some under or around the spindle. Let it soak overnight, then try to turn the spindle with your fingers again. If it's now free, mop up and remove as much of the remaining cleanser as you can, leaving the table out, put a cup of water or preferably a bowl with more volume, in the unit, let it run for some minutes to try to dry the rest of the cleanser out.
Put the table back in to see if it will now turn.
If this doesn't work, it will be necessary to replace the motor. Since this is a unit I don't know, I can't predict if it is a DIY project or not and the dealer may ask an unrealistic price for the replacement.

SOURCE: GE Advantium SCA1000.
I fixed this yesterday, using the solution posted here: http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/microwave-repair/4882-advantium-turntable-light-always-main-relay.html
Unplug the unit.
Replace the interior light using these instructions: http://www.instructables.com/id/GE-Advantium-Microwave-Halogen-Lightbulb-Replaceme/ The inside of my unit looks a bit different from the pictures, but the procedure is basically the same.
Additional info not in the procedure link above:
Remove the one screw at the top of the front control panel.
Slide the control panel up to disengage it, and pull out slowly (has wires on back)
There are four black rectangular things running top-to-bottom on the PCB board on the back. One of them is labeled RY1.
Tap on RY1 with a screwdriver a few times (very high tech). I actually tapped on all of them for good measure.
Reassemble, see if everything works now.
It took me about 30 minutes for the bulb and the control panel 'adjustment'. Everything is working now.

YES THERE IS AN INTERNAL FUSE OR DIODE YOU CAN CHANGE, BUT YOU SHOULD BE CAREFUL AN LET A PRO DO IT, YOU JUST DON'T WANT TO GET ZZZAPPPP WITH THE CAPACITOR THAT STORAGES HIGH VOLTAGE INSIDE TO PROVIDE THE MICRO WITH POWER, IT MAY SEEM LIKE A LIL UNIT BUT IT CAN HURT YOU IF YOU DONT DE-ACTIVATE IT RIGHT, NOT SURE IF THE DIODE WOULD BRING IT BACK BUT CHECK WITH A SERVICE MAN, BEFORE DOING ANYTHING I WOULD!

sounds like the magnetron. Youll have to have a technician replace it. if you have a warranty just call the company and they should take care of you.
