Question about GE Profile Advantium SCB2001KSS Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

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

I have a GE SCB2001CSS03 Advantium Oven that just stopped working.

My wife said she was using it, had set the time, and when she pushed in the big round button to start it cooking, she heard a pop and it stopped.

Checked the breaker, it wasn't tripped. I tripped it and left it off for over an hour...but still there is no life in the oven.
Any suggestions?

    Ours just stopped working. No lights, nothing. I checked power to unit and it is ok. Is there a fuse inside?

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.

My GE Profile Advantium Microwave Oven runs (and heats) continuously. The only way to stop it from running is to open the door.


Hi

Sounds like a defective door interlock switch or a broken switch mount. If it's not a problem with the door switch or door switch mount you will need to replace the magnetron and the touch pad as well.This will fix your issue.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting fixya.com

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!
