Question about GE Advantium SCA1000H Convection / Microwave Oven

1 Answer

GE Advantium SCA 1000 oven has no power

Took oven off wall while renovating kitchen. Used oven at 450 degrees while sitting on table. Oven stopped before 15 minutes were up. All power went out and never came on again. Unplugging the oven and plugging in again doesn't fix problem. Thought I might have overheated the oven. Is there a fuse I should try to replace? If so, where is it and if not, what else can I try?

I would suspect a blown magnetron thermal cutout or thermostat (whichever it has) or cavity thermal cutout or thermostat (whichever it has).

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

At our site, we now have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you'd want to scan and e-mail or copy and fax the mini-manual (or at least the "schematic diagram page) to me, I'd be happy to make more precise suggestions.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

And you'd pretty much need to remove it from the wall and take the cover off to access either of these suspected parts.

Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.

While using the oven setting on our GE Profile Advantium, at 450 degree setting, the oven stopped mid-baking. I feel there is a fuse for this? is it easy to do ourselves or should we get an expert?


I regularly repair these.

Feel free to contact me via my site with your full model number and FCC ID number as shown on the tag in or on the oven for free help.

Disconnect it and connect bac to power. check the fuse. If nothing works is either the fuse, the cable or the power supply unit.

My SCA 1000 completely shut down and won't come back on


There is probably an internal slow-blow fuse,they will electrically fatigue over time.It will require the cover to be removed to replace it,look for an inline fuse holder on the hot lead where the power cord enters the housing.

Was baking at 450 degrees and entire unit went dead. Confirmed outlet power is ok. Took off front grill but can't see anything obvious. Can see a fuse, could that be blown??


Yes! The fuse is usually the most common problem. It is usually a 15 amp Cerramic fuse (white in color). Appliance parts places usually carry them, for a buck or two.
Best of luck.

I have a GE Advantium SCA 200 oven that stopped working as we were cooking. the Breaker is OK and there is power to the receptacle. Is there a fuse in the unit that can be replaced without a technician?


Yes, it is a ceramic fuse inside the unit that can be easily purchased at your local Radio Shack. Take the original there and they will find the replacement fuse. Just unplug the unit before working on the electrical parts...

GE Advantium SCA 1000 top rear cooking bulb blown


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First please disconnect the power of the main fuse or circuit breaker panel and remove the screw from the side of the light compartment cover and lower the cover until it stops. Now gently pull the bulb from the receptacle. Raise the light cover and replace the screw and then connect the oven with the mains and switch it on.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

I purchased an Advantium 120 SCA 1001KSS my kitchen plan was to install this into the wall not over the cooktop. The salesperson said I could. The installation information does not support that as I think...


I'm not finding a trim kit for those, but it's best to contact GE customer service here.

That is considered an accessory, so it;s not something I commonly search for.

Oven stop working while it was preheating to 450 degrees


Chances are the oven cavity thermostat has failed.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

It's pretty simple to replace the light without having to remove the oven from the wall...as long as you have an offset phillips screwdriver...

Of course, be sure to disconnect power to microwave and be sure not to touch the new halogen bulb with fingers.

STEP-BY-STEP:
First, remove upper vent panel and remove inner filter (same directions for just replacing inner carbon filter):

Then, remove inner plastic grille (2 screws) and final screw on left side of metal "air duct" - here's where you'll need the offset screw driver (and a little patience!):

Then, you can gently lift the sheet metal panel, find the light housing, squeeze and remove/replace :)

That's it...just replace bulb and reverse for reassembly. Be sure to keep track of screw locations there are various sizes/lengths used.
