Unfortunately this is how most microwaves die. The Magnatron that generates the microwaves (behind the cover) overheats and charrs the insulation between the high voltage contacts.
You would be best to obtain a new unit or have it repaired,
Spares are usually available, but sometimes it is not economically feasable.
Hope this helps.

Unfortunatey unless the unit is a high end oven by the time you pay for the parts and labor you could probably get a new one. Don't forget if you have to replace these parts already who knows what else is about to happen. I hope this helps you out.

Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the mica waveguide cover.
The waveguide cover is usually about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.
Sometimes it is the ceiling of the oven.
Your owner's manual may address this. You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!
The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.
If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean.
Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart or Lowe's.
If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.
