Finally built up the courage to call GE Appliance number and weave my way through the phone menu system. Pressed the right menu option (sales) to speak to someone about trim kits. Found out that the trim kit model number is JX1527MWW. Then called back to select a different menu option (other) and learned from someone else that since the trim kit model is more than 1-2 years old, there's a slim-to-none chance any new microwave models will work with it, and even if there was they couldn't easily cross-reference against a model that old to tell me which one (or something to that effect). So I hit a dead end. Only option for me at this point is to buy a new microwave with new trim kit.
(Personal note: I think the trim kit business is a racket, in bed with the microwave manufacturers. Why else would there be no standard dimensions for microwaves by now--like refrigerators have--and why is it a few pieces of sheet metal cost over $150? Pretty convenient that every microwave model needs its own trim kit model!)

First check the switch-- does it have power, then check the solenoid to see if it works-- there are two. One is for down, One is for up. If you get power from the solenoid-- outgoing-- check connections going to pump motor.

If you have a multimeter which can cost less than $10 or a test light. What you want to do is have the up button pressed and see which 2 wires have power. The 3rd wire should not have power. Then press the down button and see which to wires have power. It should change. Most likely the black is common and feeds power to the switch. When pushed up the blue gets power. When pushed down the green gets power. You may have to provide a ground to the motor from the battery.

Stop! Dont replace the pump...I would bet that it is the "down" Solenoid that went haywire. I would begin by replacing the Down solenoid...it is a far easier and cheaper fix and if your pump works to raise the engine then that tells me that it is not faulty. The Down solenoid looks just like a starter solenoid and the one that you are looking to replace has a GREEN wire to it. Yellow with a red stripe is for the starter. Blue wire is the up solenoid. So replace the one with the green wire going to it and I bet it will fix your problem.
