Question about GE SCB2001FSS Advantium Electric Single Oven

Open Question

GE Advantium Microwave indicates no power, but breaker is on.

I have a GE Advantium Microwave oven that has no lights, display, or anything else to indicate it has power. I checked the circuit breaker, and it's okay.

I turned off the breaker for over an hour, and still no life in the microwave.
Any suggestions?

SOURCE: GE Advantium stopped working completely...indicates no power but it is on.

It may be that your high voltage diode or capacitor has shorted.

The fuse is usually located behind the grille, on the floor of the oven behind the control panel, between the door switches, or on the filter board near where the cord comes into the unit.

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.

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

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html
(if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html
(continuity can be good even though it is bad!)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html

To check the high voltage parts, you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

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

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

Sounds like the door monitor switch, which would take out the internal ceramic fuse. I'd replace those two plus the primary and secondary door safety interlock switches.

Advantium zsc2001fss no power no lights


I have same unit...power outage made unit come back on and it then requested user to set the clock, but the display shows the hours but won't accept the pushputton to lock it in. I had to look at the control panel today to see how hard it would be to replace.

To take off the front vent panel: first take microwave out of the built-in space, disconnecting the power cord. Then the top outer metal skin can be unscrewed and removed, which exposes the screws that hold in the front top vent and the control panel in place.

Advantium oven has no power


THE NEXT STEP IS TO CHECK THE OUTLET FOR POWER, THEN THE CORD WHERE IT ATTACHES TO TO OVEN ITSELF. A VOLT METER IS MOST RECOMMENDED FOR THIS, AS THERE MAY BE A BURT WIRE OR BAD PLUG.

The GE Profile Advantium SCB2001KSS started beeping and displaying error code F3. I was able to set the time after holding one of the controls in for 3 seconds, but it reverted to the beeping and F3 error...


I know what you mean. I was cooking with this appliance tonight and suddenly it displayed an f-3 code. My advantium oven is less than 8 months old. Not sure how this happened or how to fix the problem. In order to sleep tonight (the constant beeping) I had to shut power off at the breaker pannel. Is this representative of the the type of quality that GE stands for???? I am sooo frustrated. I cook with my advantium oven all the time and love the dual abilities of this appliance. Like I said this is brand new and to have the f-3 code which apparently (from what I read) is a failed key pad. I am very dissapointed and am begining to think about pulling my stock from this company!
