Question about GE Advantium SCA1001SS Convection / Microwave Oven
My oven has started to "click" repeatedly when it is connected to the electrical outlet - whether it is on or not, whether the door is open or closed. Clicking comes from behind the small grill area inside the oven where the light is - looks like a panel is stuck? Only way to stop the clicking is to disconnect from the wall or throw the power switch - any idea of problem and if I could safely repair? Thank you!
Excellent camera work! This is very helpful.
That door you mention is part of the "damper assembly".
In that damper assembly is a damper switch which detects the position of the damper door.
If the switch goes bad, or there's some kind of obstruction of the damper door, the control board will try to run the damper motor to close or open the door, as appropriate, depending on whether you're cooking in microwave mode or speedcook / convection mode.
It's not listed as a separate part, but that damper switch should be the same kind as the upper and lower door switches to the left of the control panel.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
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. Maybe you saw that already?
If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full 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.
