The problem you are having is that the magnetron that actually does the heating has gone bad. The fact that everthing works fine rules out any type of bad fuse since there is only one 15amp ceramic fuse in most cases in the unit itself. The magnetron is located behind the control panel on top and has some cooling fins on it. Replacing it if you are a do-it-yourselfer is pretty easy provided you can find one at local electronic supplier or on the internet such as www.mwoparts.com if you would like to see what it looks like. It is held in place with typically 4 screws. It has two to three terminals depending on make and model and age. With everything unplugged it comes off easily enough with no desoldering or soldering to do. There is a High Voltage Capacitor and Diode that could be bad also, but without being able to check it in person it would be difficult for me to tell that they are. In my experience the magnetron is the first thing I replace and have never replaced a capacitor or high voltage diode in the past 20 years. Good luck and God bless.

There may be a problem with either the door seal or the thermostat.
The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.
If it still fails, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here in case you don't have yours.
Once you look it over, if you still have a problem, GE Customer Service is here and they should be able to help you check it or send service if you have a problem.

it is possible that your fridge has developed a snag in its cooling system. what could be done from your end will be to first of all switch off the fridge for at least 8 hours. allow it to totally defrost. then switch on to see if the cooling returns. if so reduce the thermostat to 7 degrees and check. if the cooling returns then you will need to check for frosting inside due to failure of the thermostat or the auto defroster. if there is still no cooling then your gas has leaked, failureof the compressor, failue of the valves in the compressor could be suspected. Probe with these inputs. Good day
