I have a GE Spacemaker Microwave Oven (JVM1540). Clock works

Resolved Question:

I have a GE Spacemaker Microwave Oven (JVM1540). Clock works but can not power on exhaust fan, surface light or microwave itself. The display screen shows the functions pressed on the control panel. When I press the microwave function the display screen shows the timer timing down, the oven light comes on and hums, but the carousel does not turn and the microwave does not power up.

your smart board (control board) is bad. you may have had a power spike which can cause this to fail. you need to order and replace the board. you can order this @ its around $107.00 common failure on these.
