Chances are you have a magnetron that's failing. GE had a rash of "underperforming" magnetrons on these units. They replace the magnetron, stirrer and high-voltage diode at no charge for parts as long as a GE-authorized service center does the work. Sometimes the unit gets run too long in a failing state and the waveguide and chassis of the oven get damaged. The bulletin shows you where tyo check. To see if yours is covered, see this bulletin: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf Otherwise, you need to contact GE Customer Relations at 1-800-386-1215 as soon as possible and tell them your problem and they will put you in touch with a local authorized servicer.

Sounds like the turntable motor is going bad.

With the symptoms you
have, I would most strongly suspect a failed high voltage transformer, which is an expensive fix.
It may also be a shorted high voltage rectifier diode (which costs less) or a bad magnetron, or a loose and possibly corroded connection on the magnetron's terminal.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
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.
If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:
(if it's not shorted or burned, it's probably okay)
You can download Frigidaire / Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
They make removing the oven from the wall for service (or replacement) much easier.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: turntable won't turn
Look at the front panel, at the bottom, in the middle.
Identify the button labeled "Turntable On/Off".
Slap yourself on the forehead.
Next time you fumble to turn of the light in the dark, push the right button.
