Question about GE JVM1542 Microwave Oven
I agree with Microwave Svc above. Problem is board blown by changing bulb while unit plugged in. I fixed mine myself in about 30 minutes with a soldering iron and a piece of wire-extremely easy fix.

The problem is damage to the control circuit board. This damage is usually caused by removing or installing light bulbs without disconnecting the oven from the power line first. We regularly repair these GE / Samsung smart boards for this problem for customers from across the country for $32.50. We have an important file called "safety.txt" which you can find by doing a search for "microwave safety.txt" on Yahoo.com. It's important information to consider before proceeding. When the varistor fails, it will be shorted. That will cause the whole oven to be "dead". It's almost certainly fine.
