Resolved Question:

I have a GE Advantium Microwave (Model SCA2001BSS 03) that has no power at all. Circuit (240v) is fine. Prior to "dying", the oven would make a strange intermittent "buzzing" sound. A couple of times it lost all power, but came back after a short while. Now it is totally dead. I have read that the cooling fan for the magnetron fails (buzzing sound?) it will trip a relay to protect the unit. Any thoughts?

It sound like you are right. If the unit is totally dead you may have blown the fuse behind the control panel now.

OK, so what now? Can I view a repair manual to see how to remove and replace the fuse and cooling fan?

I just look up to see if this model has a repair manual and there isn't one available. I just want to let you know that this microwave is the hardest one to work on out there. I would cal a tech to come out and replace the fuse. After the fuse is replaced then he can figure out why it blew.
