Hi .. your problem is most likeliy inside the microwave itself. I would replace it. Or you can take it to a shop that does repairs to get a diagnoses and estimate .. but replacement might be the less costly.

GE spacemaker XL microwave oven blowing fuse


If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead several seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the house fuse or breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Here's a YouTube video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
