Question about Microwave Ovens
Microwaves usually have several years' warranty on the magnetron itself - such as 5 to 9 years!
I would call the GE Answer Center with your model and serial number and ask them how many years the magnetron is covered under warranty.
Also ask them for the numbers of a few local GE-authorized warranty service centers.
(GE Answer Center® 1-800-626-2005 Open Monday 6 a.m. ET through Saturday midnight ET)
If the mag is still covered, and you take it to a GE-authorized warranty service center, you'd not have to pay for the magnetron.
And taking it to the shop will indeed save you a lot of money.
If you decide to remove it from the wall, the installation instructions will be very handy to have. If you don't have them, you can find them online here.
Good luck and be safe!
