Question about GE Microwave Ovens
May 24, 2017 JVM1190 - - What are your symptoms?
I regularly repair the controllers for these microwaves and details are here.
It's best to follow up with me directly. (FixYa does not notify us directly when follow-ups are posted, so we have to log in to the site to see them.)
If you are determined to replace it, ask GE Customer Service if they have a direct replacement for your model. They are here: http://www.geappliances.com/ge/service-and-support/contact.htm

SOURCE: GE JVM1190 will not heat
Check for a reset on the back--if nothing, pull the cord and remove the case. Look for a blown fuse. If you find one blown, replace the high voltage diode in the magnetron power supply. Remove the sheet metal wave guide which covers the area where the microwave energy enters the cooking cavity. Under the wave guide there is a fan-like device called a 'stirrer' that has a plastic bearing which can short out due to an arc that passes through the bearing. Replace the stirrer and the blown fuse. The machine can be tested with cover off as long as you keep your hands out of it. Use a cup of cold water for a cooking load. Running the unit empty can cause a repeat of your problems. If you did not find a blown fuse, check the door interlock switch(es) for failure or coming loose from the mounting.
