If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

Toss out the magnetron and replace with a new one, but make sure to discharge the capacitor before tinkering around inside or it will shock the hell out of you.

That sounds like the interface controller which is just a little computer chip that cotrols everything and watches the signals from the touchpad is having problems. Usually these will behave like this and then just stop so your touchpad is totally dead. It may take out the time displays as well.

If you have warrenty from GE or the store it will be covered. If you are not covered then it can cost about the same or more as a new microwave as they will have to replace the board. Check your warrenty's, then check the repair cost and check replacement costs. Usually a new microwave is the cheapest.

It's probably a stuck relay or you might want to check the door switches. Also try unplugging it for 30 seconds and replugging it.
