Question about GE JEM31 Microwave Oven
When I start the microwave it has a funny smell coming out of the airvents and does not heat the food even though the timer is counting down and the oven sounds like it is operating. If I have to purchase a replacement can I get one to fit into the built-in space? Thank you!

Sounds like you burned out the magnetron, if so you should discontinue use immediately. This is the bit that emits the microwaves and they will fail with a burnt faintly oily smell to an acrid chemical smell. Magneton replacement should not be attempted by the amateur fix-it man, Find a reputable appliance repair shop or chuck it in!
