Question about GE Microwave Ovens
There is a fan connected to a motor, it is above the oven compartment usually, sometimes in the back, its purpose is toe distribute the microwaves and to cool the chamber. Your motor is stuck and the burning smell is the motor windings melting and burning. In order to fix this you need to take the oven apart and access the fan. You may be able to turn the blades of the fan when you get to it, and get it to go again, but it may be past that point already. If this is a cheap (less than 80 dollar US) oven, just replace it, or if its new and under warranty try to get a replacement, either from the store where you bought it, or contact the manufacturer and find out what they might do for you.
