hi there the issues you are having is a computer board issue
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Can I repair this or does it have to go to a shop? If it has to go to a shop what would you guess it should cost?
Expert:  Randy replied 7 years ago.
This is a very fixable by you. The problem is the control board not being able to hold the program. The problem is are you willing to spend the money to fix the microwave? Is it worth the cost since it is a counter top? For you alone to replace the control board you will have to spend about $150 after tax on the part. GE parts tend to be costly. So you need to weight your pros and cons. I am sending you a link to the breakdown of your microwave. In the diagram the main control board is #1655. Hope this helps you with answering your question.
