This is not likely a door switch problem. That pop was probably a part blowing, most likely the high voltage rectifier diode. If you or a friend want to check into and repair this, here is a good link for safety info & do-it-yourself info: http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html Find & buy GE repair parts here: http://www.geappliances.com/shop/prts/ If that isn't it, please repost with new details.

You can download the service / repair manual here.
Most computers will open the manual automatically, but you may need the free Adobe Reader.
It will give you safety info, step by step help in disassembly, troubleshooting tips, and reference numbers. Unfortunately it does not give you part numbers for some reason...
You can find & order parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.
I would first check the fuse and oven thermostat.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Accessing some components (especially the oven cavity thermostat) for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall and take off the outer cover.
If so, the installation instructions here are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
Once the fuse and oven thermostat are known good and the microwave functions, if the lights / fan still won't work or won't shut off, then you have a problem with the control board.
We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.
The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or no bright, too. Sometimes this will similarly affect the exhaust fan operation or inside light, too.
You should check your light sockets for a short, too.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

If it was not in use when this happened check the door switches. If it was in use the HV diode or Capacitor could have shorted or a door switch as well. Eric

I have a GE Profile Spacemaker model JVM3670WF001, purchased I think in 2003. Pop sound, no Heat. Light goes on, carousel goes around,

You should have no arcing within the unit. Assuming you have adequate food/water in the cavity, it should not arc. You NEVER run the unit without something to be heated in it!!!
You might check the stirrer fan which is often in the roof of the unit to see if contamination might be in the area causing arcing. The electric fields in th area are very high and arcs can jump.
If the insulating window is charred or has charred grease, it should bbe replaced.
