It's probably the high voltage rectifier diode or magnetron.

The magnetron will have a guarantee lasting about 5-9 years, so if it might be covered, contact GE at http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/contact/

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
Also, there should be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

This can be caused by slamming the door or by habitually opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

SOURCE: GE less than 2 year old microwave runs, doesn't heat

The problem you are having is that the magnetron that actually does the heating has gone bad. The fact that everthing works fine rules out any type of bad fuse since there is only one 15amp ceramic fuse in most cases in the unit itself. The magnetron is located behind the control panel on top and has some cooling fins on it. Replacing it if you are a do-it-yourselfer is pretty easy provided you can find one at local electronic supplier or on the internet such as www.mwoparts.com if you would like to see what it looks like. It is held in place with typically 4 screws. It has two to three terminals depending on make and model and age. With everything unplugged it comes off easily enough with no desoldering or soldering to do. There is a High Voltage Capacitor and Diode that could be bad also, but without being able to check it in person it would be difficult for me to tell that they are. In my experience the magnetron is the first thing I replace and have never replaced a capacitor or high voltage diode in the past 20 years. Good luck and God bless.

Fan runs when door is closed and no time set.


Some GE units were starting on their own. I would definitely unplug this oven and call GE to make sure yours wasn't one of the ones being re-called.

GE Profile XL1800 light out and fan starts running when door is closed


It is not the fault with the fan but the trigger to the fan is shorted. It can be the DOOR SWITCH or the Transistor switch from the board. A fault or error on the processor cannot be ruled out. Clean the main board and reset.

Light and fan stay on and turntable no longer work


Hi,
Not sure if your model has a belt driven turntable or gear driven. The cause of your problem is most likely a worn or loose drive gear or a drive belt which is worn or has come off.
Best have this checked at your local repair shop.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

GE microwave won't turn off


Just checked the GE website. Had the same problem with my 5 year old microwave. GE website says to close and open the door quickly three times. First time I did this it didn't work. Second time I closed the door with some significant force and reopened it more quickly. Worked. Unplugged the microwave, plugged it back in, still fine.
