Here is a link to the GE User manual for your microwave oven.. Once you download it.. You will find a section on light bulb replacement that details how to install and which particular bulbs to use..Hope this helps you..

SOURCE: fuse keeps blowing.
couple questions -
what else is on the circuit,
and what current does the oven need
there are whirlpool over-range models with
1200watts of microwave,
1500watts of convection power, a
60watt bulb and a
over 15amps -20amp circuit needed
if you inadvertantly replaced a higher current fuse with a 15amp fuse, it will blow every time.
the install guide http://www.whirlpool.com/assets/pdfs/product/ZINSTALL/8206589.pdf reccommends 20amp
not a solution, something to check,

Fixed it. There was a back capacitor fuse (I believe that's what it's called) on the old magnetron. I removed it and put it on the new magnetron. The HV diode is on the big silver capacitor and very easy to replace. I just didn't see it. It was definitely the magnetron and I hope that this new one comes with a warranty for 5 more years.

I gather that GE would replace the part under warranty but you need to pay labor? $200 to replace a magnetron seems way out of line just for labor.
The magnetron is the most likely part to cause your symptom. Capacitors and diodes usually fail by shorting, and cause the oven to make loud humming noises or blow the fuse. But the trouble might also be due to the control circuit board, either bad parts or solder connections.
Unless you have the proper tools and experience, trying to diagnose where the trouble is can be very hazardous. There are lethal voltages present with the cover off and the oven operating. You should leave the repair to a professional. An independent shop might be able to diagnose the problem and give you an estimate for a lower charge, and then you could decide whether to repair or replace.

SOURCE: Magnetron will not run. I
You have replaced all those and still no go, well, In that case the main controller board is most likely faulty too. This is common, for the controller board and or power supply has been spiked.
