If the hood vent exhaust fan came on
by itself, that was due to excessive heat on stove top, a failure of
the hood TCO (thermal cutout / thermostat) or a problem on the control
circuit board (smart board) which we regularly repair for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a
week with a one-year guarantee.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
In this model, there are three TCOs which could be open, rendering the oven dead: The bottom TCO (not to be confused with the hood TCO, which should be normally open) the heater TCO and the magnetron TCO.
Also, the fuse should be checked in the unit.
Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.
If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Maybe magnatron, Hvtransformer or..sensors on door. Tech diagnoses then order parts from this site. If you think you can repair. Magnatron tricky and need qualified person to install if you are not qualified.

Circuit Breakers do weaken over usage. It is not usually a time factor as much as a load factor. Each time a circuit breaker trips, it loses its ability to carry the same load as it did previously. In other words, a 15 amp breaker only carries the ability to carry 15 amps once. I recommend replacing the circuit breaker with one that has a matching rating. If you do feel up sizing is necessary, check the load rating of the appliances to make sure the additional size really is necessary. Increasing power to appliances that shouldn't need it increases the risks of potential electrical fires and masking real issues. Try changing it with higher amp breakers.
