SOURCE: GE Advantium won't heat

Actually, these have a 10-year warranty on the magnetron and on the halogen speedcook lamps.

GE will even send you the magnetron to replace it yourself. Call them at 888-239-6832.

The full service manual with installation instructions is here.

Part ordering help (if you need other parts) is here.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.


If you or someone you know want to replace the magnetron yourself, you will need to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward. Thewy are in the service manual.

You can also download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions
here.

If you prefer to replace it though, I would suggest doing Google searches to try to find 240V microwave ovens. They're the exception.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: my GE Advantium sca2000bbb03 does dont heat

I had this same problem with no heat. I called the GE rep out and he replaced the magnetron thinking that was the problem and put back together and had the same problem. I just happened to press in on the door while he was studying his diagnostics and it started heating. He then replaced the door switch and all was well.

SOURCE: Re: "my GE Advantium SCA2001

It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Check your power setting, making sure that you are cooking at 100%. Adjust if necessary.
It could also be a bad magnetron.
