Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Advantium 120 oven quit working- only 3 yrs old!

The convection oven recently began shutting off on it's own, but you could re-start it to finish heating up food. Within the week, it finally quit working all together. Breaker is not tripped and plug outlet is fine; check on other outlets.

    OK, I've pulled the hidden manual and narrowed down a problem. I do not care about destroying this oven b/c it's out of warranty anyway, so after taking oven semi-apart, I found he upper thermostat TCO is scorched/melted on where the 2 red wires plug into tco. Looks like I can order a new thermostat on line and fix it myself, but why did this happen? Would this also cause any fuses to blow? Thanx.

You probably have a failed thermistor / temperature sensor.

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.

Our Advantium 120 oven (model # SCA1001KSS 02, Manufactured June 2008)is not working. Began w/ time not coming on when cooking and just a little green microwave light shows while cooking.


Typical of a control microchip failure caused by a power surge. With a microwave as old as yours, it is safest to simply replace the entire oven rather than attempt to fix it, as older magnetrons are likely to fail.

Need to know how to remove Advantium 120 convection/microwave oven Model SCA1000DWW03 from mounting above stove so that it can be taken to repair shop - problem is completely dead after power surge during...


Usually there are 3 or 4 mounting bolts located in the floor of the cabinet above. First you will have to disconnect the power and then the duck work if the unit is ventde to the outside. To remove the unit requires two people, one to support the unit and the other to remove the bolts. If you are doing it alone, quite difficult, you'll have to juryrig a deadman support. Ther is a wall plate behind the unit that has a lip that the back bottom of the microwve is locked into. After the bolts are removed slowly lower the front until you are able free the unit from the lip of the support plate.

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.
