Question about GE Microwave Ovens
It sounds like 2 separate problems:
1) One of the cooktop lights may have shorted. Sometimes this happens and causes damage (repairable) to the control circuit board. Sometimes it will result in the lights or fan not working, or not turning on.
2) You may have a bad magnetron. See this FixYa solution.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
