To lock or unlock the keypad, press and hold the CLEAR pad for 5 seconds. If this recurs, you may have a power line problem or trouble with your controller. If you suspect trouble and it's under warranty, don't hesitate to contatc GE via ge.com.

So it's dead? (No display, no inside lights, no beeps?)
A microwave can be dead for many reasons.
If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the thermostat to open. When it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.
If it's random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or fuse holder.
If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.
If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.
If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams for the similar model M438 here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
The model M437 is not listed, but the M438 is, and it should be similar enough to guide you. Just don't count on the part numbers being the same.
Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.
