The control panel has built-in surge protection, and the high voltage probably tripped that. It will have to be repaired, which we do nationwide for only $39.95 postpaid. By rights, I would say the electrician should be the one to see to the repairs, including removing the control panel assembly to send in for repair. We have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams by entering your full model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 Please let us know if you have any other questions.

The same thing just happened to us..... there is no fuse on the microwave but we check our fuse box and tried another plug and it still did not work. GE sent us a new smartboard and now I trying to figure out how to get the thing apart.

it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty.
I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Hello. You have isolated the problem.
Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it.

The keypad is part number WB27X10721 MEMBRANE KEY PANEL available for $37.09 here (it's $61.50 from GE!).
If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.
First of all, you should check the end of the keypad strip for rough white, gray, or green deposits that can sometime interfere with conductivity.
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.
Then disconnect the strip as shown in the photo below and use a soft pencil eraser to gently clean both sides of the end, then reinsert it and try it again.
If that doesn't fix it, and you don't notice any rough white, gray, or green deposits on the circuit board (moisture or mineral deposits) or grease, then your keypad is bad.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.
If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
