Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
That sound may have been caused by an arc-over in the magnetron. There is also the possibility that a high voltage power supply part (for the magnetron) has failed. This unit probably still has a 'linear' power supply so the part that failed could be only the rectifier diode and these are not terribly costly or hard to replace. I don't like to dispose of things that are repairable but the cost of labor and parts would likely exceed the cost of replacement unless you know of a retired service tech who is willing to do it for less.
