GE Profile Advantium 120 Oven not working; less than year old!!

GE Profile Advantium 120 Oven
Model # SCA1000HCC 04

We have manually reset the unit, still no joy.

Everything appears to work fine, clock, programming, etc. but won't cook. Nothing happens on micro express or regular cook start. A/V repair tech by trade, any advice? Does this sound like a microcontroller issue? If anyone has a service manul for this it would be a godsend...

    "When you hit Start to cook, do the inside light and turntable come on?"



    No, there is simply no response from the start button.


    "Any unusual noises? Is it louder or quieter than usual?"



    There are no noises at all.

    "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."



    Awesome!


    "If you can scan (at 150-300dpi) the "schematic" page form that and e-mail it to me (and remind me of your full model number) I can help you better."




    I should be able to get at this in the next day or two. Once I get the schem I'll can the page for you.

    When you hit Start to
    cook, do the inside light and turntable come on?




    Any unusual noises? Is
    it louder or quieter than usual?



    These answers will help
    me judge whether it's in the high voltage
    section (magnetron, transformer, or diode) or the control section
    (door switch or control board relay or connection).


    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.

    If you can scan (at 150-300dpi) the "schematic" page form that and e-mail it to me (and remind me of your full model number) I can help you better.

We got the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it.

I'm suspecting the keypad or a door switch or switch mount issue.

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

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

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.

I have a GE profile advantium oven 120 that is just over 1 year old the turntable rotates but as soon as I put on the glass or mental tray it will not rotate what is the problem?


Either the coupler is cracked, the motor is defective, or the turntable support ("rotating ring asm") is worn or defective.

Demo Mode


Unplug the microwave for at least 3 minutes, then plug it back in, and BEFORE SETTING THE CLOCK, press and hold power level and start for three seconds. This should flash "demo mode off". Set the clock as normal. Enjoy!

How long does it run before it fails? Does it look like the display is getting scrambled characters? I'm leaning toward a bad magnetron, but it may be more or less than that. If you can give more details and especially the actual full model number (as opposed to the model name Advantium 120) that would help. Thanks!
