Ok, with any Microwave, if they do not heat up. usually, it is the magnetron,itself, or the High Power Diode. MW, are very repairable, however sometimes the cost of repair, is often more that a new one with a warranty. If you wish to get it repaired, you need to contact GE, and ask for a referral to an Authorised service Canter. Always ask for a "Quote" before proceeding with any repair, that way you can get an idea of costs,and then you can make up your mind, as to repair or replace. If you decide to repair this yourself, and I do NOT recommend that you do. (More tech's are killed each year from servicing these than any other single thing), But if you wish, I have provided many DIY links and manuals to assist. Again if you DO, please be careful, use an "Isolation transformer" Always discharge the BIG main Capacitor, with a "Shorting stick" every time you power up, and turn off.

Check the start switch with an OHM meter and check for continuity. If the circuit stays at an OL reading replace the start switch. If a reading is seen the relay is at fault in the start uo circuit

I have the same problem. A repair person said that he thought it was the megatron (whatever that is) He suggested just using the microwave until it quits.
