If you're getting power at the outlet, the most common problems causing a "dead" condition are a bad thermostat (or thermal cutout / thermal fuse) on or near the magnetron, a blown internal fuse, or a problerm on the control circuit board.

SOURCE: fuse keeps blowing.
couple questions -
what else is on the circuit,
and what current does the oven need
there are whirlpool over-range models with
1200watts of microwave,
1500watts of convection power, a
60watt bulb and a
over 15amps -20amp circuit needed
if you inadvertantly replaced a higher current fuse with a 15amp fuse, it will blow every time.
the install guide http://www.whirlpool.com/assets/pdfs/product/ZINSTALL/8206589.pdf reccommends 20amp
not a solution, something to check,

mtystufquit - We've already discussed this by chat & e-mail, and if and when you need further help, please let me know.
"If the digital programmer circuit / controller does not get a feedback signal from the inverter for a period of 3 seconds, the controller will stop the cook cycle."
ddmdavid - you probably have a bad door switch or door switch mount. Please see these links.
If you still need help, please create a new post with your brand and model number.

It is a loose or bad magnetron emitting electrical interference that disrupts the control unit.
When you move the circuit board away from the magnetron or take the cover off, the interference is weakened, and the control unit works fine.
If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.
If it's within the mag warranty, G.E. should send you the magnetron to do it yourself. Call them at 888-239-6832 with your model, serial, and manufacturing date.
If nothing else, you can save about $50-75 if you remove it from the wall and take it to a GE-authorized servicer.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Chances are that either the diode or capacitor are shorted. Be very careful, the capacitor can store a charge and should be discharged first for safety. Hope that helps...
