Question about Ovens
No, the H97 error code signals the fact that the inverter board - the board that supplies the power to the magnetron (the part that produces the microwaves) - has failed. This is a hardware fault, and a critical one: no inverter = no high tension = the magnetron can't work = no microwaves = no heat.
Since the inverter produces very high tension - over 5000 volts - when it fails it fails completely - the board can't be repaired and will have to be replaced.
Since the high tension can easily spark if you get near the capacitors on the inverter board (they remain constantly charged, whatever happens to the rest of the board) and the spark will kill you instantly , you should not even get near to it, leave this repair to well protected professional. It will cost you around $150 so you should think very carefully if it's worth repairing.
Personally i wouldn't trust an oven that has suffered such a severe failure.

1.Press the "Clear/Off" button on the control panel to reset the oven. This will clear the lock setting and unlock the door.
2.Allow the oven to cool to room temperature to avoid turning the lock on again during this heating cycle.
3.Reset the oven to the temperature you require to finish cooking by pressing the correct temperature control on the control pad.
1.If your GE Profile microwave won't turn on, unplug it, then plug it back in. A power outage may have occurred due to a power surge. Check your home's fuses and circuit breakers.
2.Set the clock of your GE Profile microwave. Certain models will not operate until you set the clock. Select the "Clock" key and type in the correct time.
3.Hold down your microwave's "Off" button. You may have accidentally hit the control-lock feature on your GE Profile microwave. Hold down the "Off" button for three seconds to turn the lock off.
4.If the sensors of your GE Profile microwave are not working correctly, remove the food from the machine. If the sensors detect food-surface temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit, it will not work properly until the area cools down.
5.Contact GE Support if you are unable to resolve the issue on your own. Call the GE Support hotline or browse the help library on the GE website. You can also schedule a service visit on GE's website.
