Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven
When the 'Micro Express' button is pressed to initiate the 30 second microwave cook cycle, there is no 'low engagement-electrical energy drawdown' sound that is typical when the microwave started working.
All other features work fine. No microwave setting will cause the microwave to work any more.
Feels like a relay gone bad.
It could be either RY2 on the main circuit board or the primary (top) interlock door switch.
There should 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 have a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes. The Advantium series may be a bit more complicated to get into. If so, let me know.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here. Let me know if you don't find yours there.
If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.
I would suggest looking over the mini-manual and checking the door switch first. If it's not jammed or burned, then it may be the relay or a connection on the board.
We repair such control panel assemblies for $39.95 in most case in about a week and offer a one year guarantee.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
