Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.

 

There are a few things that would need to be checked this, one is the internal fuse for the oven, two is the thermal overload for the oven, these would need to be checked for continuity with the power off to the oven and other words shut the breaker off, the thermal fuse is # 37 on this diagram, and this is located on the back of the oven so the other it would need to be removed to get to the thermal fuse the thermal fuse is the most likely cause of the oven not to heat, that's one problem there are also multiple things in the microwave that would need to be checked but this is a very dangerous part of the oven to work on, even when unplugged a microwave can store enough voltage to kill you, since this whole assembly will need to come out of the cabinet to get to the issues I would recommend calling a technician in qualified on microwaves, I can send you all the diagrams if you wish in fact I will include this link will take you to them, http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Whirlpool-Parts/Wall-oven-Parts/Model-GMC305PRS01/1198/0125400?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=GMC305PRS01 the far as microwave goes it could have blown the thermal overload on the side of the magnetron which is what he asked the food my recommendation is call a technician, hope this information is useful though, thanks and well wishes, Bryan

THE POWER HAS BEEN OFF ON THE MICROWAVE FOR 5 DAYS . HOW LONG WILL IT HOLD ON TO VOLTAGE?

Expert:  Bryan replied 3 years ago.
Well that's hard to say, I imagine it has discharged by now but I would be real cautious when opening this anyway, just be careful not to touch any of the high-voltage components such as the capacitor or transformer, if you click that blue link above will take you to the diagrams, sometimes Sears doesn't have pictures of the different parts so I'm going to include this link which has pictures so you are able to distinguish what is what in this, http://www.repairclinic.com/Model-GMC305PRS01-ID-652184-Parts?s=d652184e just please be safe and try not to any of the high-voltage wires even know this has been unplugged, thanks, Bryan
