Question about GE Microwave Ovens
I would guess that the magnetron overheated since bacon is a low-moisture food.
(Does your manual suggest putting a half-cup of water in the unit when cooking bacon or popcorn?)
If it didn't come back on (even after resetting the unit by unplugging it for a few minutes then trying again) then I would say the magnetron thermal cutout blew.
But since it's under warranty, GE will fix it for you free.
