Question about GE JVM1190 Microwave Oven
Blew mine last year when ice storm took service entrance off the side of the bldg, the applied voltage went up to 180vrms.
Dismantled the front and accessed the circuit board behind the keypad and there was a blown varistor (you can see if it is charred).

It may be a blown fuse or the thermal cutout (TCO) / thermostat on either the magnetron or on top of the oven cavity.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
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.
You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.
I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.
Accessing some parts may require you to pull the oven from the wall and remove the cover.
If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
