My GE Profile over range microwave spacemaker xl
Magnetron is blown.
This high-energy microwave-transmitting device hides behind a small plate on side of oven.
The waveguide sticky-out part looks like a small tube.
Normally, water molecules absorb the energy, heating the food.
Without an absorbing 'load' inside the oven cavity, the high-frequency, high power energy bounces back into the magnetron and it destroys itself. (Magnetron Hari-Kiri).
In a nutshell, tech must renew magnetron.

My GE JVM1850 microwave turns on when you open the door and when the door is shut and you try to put in a time and hit start it blows the breaker
My GE Microwave JVM1850 will not heat unless I put the vent fan on.
That's really odd. I don't believe I've heard of that one before.I would suspect the problem is on your control board, which in most can be repaired simply and inexpensively.

assembly in under 5 minutes, is here.

I have a GE JVM1850CH06
It may be a louver or the problem might be the hood vent exhaust fan.There
should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit
control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is
very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.At
our Web site, we have a video
available showing how to remove a typical
over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.You can download GE
owner's manuals and installation instructions here in order to check those by the book.
Also on those models, electrolytic capacitors sometimes fail on the control circuit board, leading to humming and chattering of relays, etc.We regularly repair these control units for
customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a
week with a one-year guarantee.
If you have trouble with your exhaust fan or cooktop lights, please have it repaired right away so the problem doesn't cascade on you.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your
full model number) for more information & help.

Turntable stopped working (yes, I pressed the turntable on/off button)
It all depends on your model number of course, but if JUST the turntable is failing, it may just be a defective turntable motor or coupler.If your internal cooling fan and/or inside / cavity light is defective, too, it may be the internal fan motor, a door switch, or a relay on the control board.We
repair those and can offer more free advice with the full model number and a little bit more detail about what's working, what's not, and when.You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.
