There seems to be a rash of these units failing in this way due to bad magnetrons. The magnetrons normally have a warranty that runs for a few years. In some models, they have a whole kit they replace, consisting of a new magnetron, stirrer, and high-voltage rectifier diode. I would call GE Customer Relations with your model and serial numbers to see if yours is affected. They're at 1-800-386-1215 (8-6 ET). I would also suggest you ask them for a referral to a GE-authorized servide center in your area. Good luck. I appreciate your thoughtful rating of this answer.

My Sharp microwave convection oven (R-967M / R96STM) cuts out during convection pre-heating and cooking, It appears it stops heating after 1 min. If the START button is pressed again the oven starts...

Also the fact it is a convection oven could mean the oven temperature sensor is not picking up the oven temp. it is not telling the machine it is there by the board seeing its resistance, the unit will shut off as a safety feature. The oven sees temperature by reading the value of a temperature dependent resistor. As the temperature changes so does the value of the component ( oven temp sensor) that way the unit determines the temperature inside the unit. Sometimes those sensors will break since they are in the area with the heat and moisture, they get old and break.

Microwave works, but not the fan. Then shuts off

The internal cooling fan (blower) is faulty and will need replacing.

Sylvania microwave convection oven overheats after

you need to remove the cover and after it operates and shuts down(CAREFULLY) feel the magnetron tube sides (BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL<HI_VOLTAGE ON TUBE FROM CAPACITOR) still, then if its not too warm there is a small temp sensor held by 2 screws on the side of the tube and they can go bad and shut off current to the tube,the tube will run warm, but should never run HOT,if its hot its defective
