Yes, this is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode.
It is usually located behind the high voltage transformer and it attaches to the magnetron and to the chassis.
For ciritical safety links how to test the diode, see: http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html

Magnetron is done. This part heats the food. GE microwaves tend to have them stop working quite frequently. They basically make up the majority of the cost of the microwave, so instead of replacing the magnetron, you would be better off getting a new microwave.

Sounds like the magnetron just shorted out. Its the part the generates the microwaves that heat the food. Buzzing sounds are a symptom of a shorted mag. Usually not worth fixing since the magnetron costs almost as much as a new oven. Sorry.
