GE spacemaker microwave

In my 2004 Dolphin the convection microwave totally stopped (no front panel, no light, no vent fan, nothing), while in the convection bake mode. I have power to the microwave, so it appears to be an internal fuse. Does anyone have any experience repairing or replacing the unit?
First thing how to get it out.

Thanks Mike

I'd be checking for voltage at the punchdown outlet it is plugged into. These outlets develop very high resistance at heavier loads, heat up, warp, and eventually let go of the wires that feed them. Good luck!!!

There should be a fuse on the circuit board. We had to replace one in our micro several years ago. We recently had the door handle break off our GE micro convection. We ended up replacing it with a Furrion convection micro. Ours was mounted to a welded steel frame. I had to put a spacer behind the frame and add a piece of plywood across a section of the frame to get the new micro mounting bolts to to line up. Other than that, the installation was pretty straight forward. We looked all over for an oven that had the same mounting bolt spacing as the GE without success. It was especially fun during China virus.

We had the same issue when our GE broke. Every one we looked at was 1/2" wider than our opening, so we too went with a Furrion. I liked the GE better.

My plan is to remove the oven, check the main fuse and go from there. I have exposed the screws but need a second person to help with the 80 pounds.
