Hi, I have a GE Spacemaker II microwave Serial
It sounds like possibly your transformer has failed or it could be an internal ground failure from your transformer to the magnetron.
It can most likely be repaired but needs done by a trained technician. If it were to be diagnosed with what I state could be wrong you would be ahead to get a new unit as opposed to paying for parts and labor to repair.
If you smell something burning in it do not run it any more, you could start a fire. I would also kill the power to it via unplugging, breaker, etc.

How can I check the diode?
It normally is not possible to check the diode of a Microwave oven without some special high voltage testing equipment. If you suspect it, replacing it would be much cheaper. A typical DVM will not do the job. But diodes usually are not the first part to fail; check the transformer.

Microwave is Locked please advise on how to unlock.
Since I don't know the model, here's a general answer. On a GE over the range oven, the top air deflector assembly is usually removable. After its off, you will have access to the fasteners at the top of the control panel. Remove it, and you should be able to see the door switch/latch assembly on the left.
Do all of this with the oven unplugged. Do not go near the high voltage capacitor as it can retain a charge of 4000 volts indefinitely. Stay away from the rest of the h v wiring as well.
