Question about GE SCB2001FSS Advantium Electric Single Oven
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.
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:
(if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)
(continuity can be good even though it is bad!)
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.
