Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
You're addressing a public help forum, not a specific servicer.
Generally a servicer will charge about $75 to visit the home, about $75-90 more to do the work, and about $75-90 for the part.
You can save the service call charge by removing it from the wall and taking it into the shop yourself.
You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here. But that one seems to have a bad link.
A backup copy is here. It has a 9-year warranty on the magnetron.
GE will send you the magnetron to do it yourself. Call them at 888-239-6832.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order other parts by entering your full model number here.

I would first advise you to check the waveguide cover. This is probbaly a large one, covering the ceiling of the microwave.
If there is grease or food debris on it or above it, using the microwave can cause it to arc and smoke.
Otherwise, it may be a problem with the high voltage transformer or magnetron. It would have to be checked.
