Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven

Open Question

It Keeps Blowing Fuses

I have GE ADVANTIUM 120 model # SCA1001hss01, The customer tried to replace the bulbs abd couldn't, I got the unit and pieced it back together and now it does nothing at all, i replaced the control board and still nothing, i replaced the thermal cut offs and now it has power, but now it blows fueses, the odd part is sometimes it takes 3 seconds to blow a fuse and sometimes it takes 30 seconds, it does heats when it runs, but the inside lights still dont work. I'm thinking it is the H.V. Capacitor but im not sure.

You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

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

I have had an Advantium for about 3 or 4 yrs and would use nothing else! When this one wears out I will buy another one! I hardly ever use my regular oven any more! Hope this helps.

Remove the top grill by removing two screws in the top. Pull the top of the grill out towards you as the bottom has pegs on it. About 6 inches from the left is metal cover that you just squeeze with your finger tips to remove. This exposes the bulb.

These models use halogen lamps. You must not touch halogen types with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

It's most likely a failed thermostat.

Advantium 120 fan and tray keep running


Looking at the service manual here, I'd bet that relay number RY6 is shorted on the "sub PC" relay circuit board, or its driver transistor on the main "smart" board is shorted.

d1a9f54.jpg
Unless your technician does component-level repair, he'll probably want to just sell you a new sub board, or main ("smart") board, or both.

They list for $64.78 and $109.83 respectively here. Hard to tell what they'll mark them up to.

Then add about $150-200 for the labor.

On the other hand, we regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

Or you can tell your technician about our services.
