Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
It may be the fuse, or the oven cavity's thermal cutout / thermostat or the magnetron's thermal cutout / thermostat.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.
If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
