This is a GE XL1800 Spacemaker, model JVM1850SH02.  Everything was fine and one day - POOF - the oven stopped heating.  This particular model was notorius for magnetron failure.  So much so, that GE sent free ones out upon request. 

Also, other forums said over and over that magnetrons failed in this model, so I called GE and sure enough they mailed one to me free without any arguments.

I haven't had time to tackle this repair yet because I'll need some help getting it off the wall.  Darn thing is heavy and I need to recruit a friend to help me.

I'll check back with you as soon as I begin this repair. 

Thanks for being so helpful - you are more than kind.
