You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

GLV BK-2 top latch broken at fish neck when retrieving.


The latch engages the interlock switches. If its broken it won't work. You will have to look inside and see if they have switches on both the top and bottom to see if you have swap them.

You should be able to order replacement latches.

The safety switches keep the oven from working with the door open so you should not disable even one of them.

Yes of course. The latch system is designed to keep it from cooking with the door open.

If the latch is broken, it will not activate the door switch, which is used to tell the oven it is closed.

We have critical safety & disassembly info (including a how-to video) at our site, linked here.

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Please write back with your brand and model number if you need further help.

Advantium 120 Keeps running


I've got this problem also.
The interior light on the oven died. We replaced it. Since replacing it the light stays on and the turn table turns.

Looking at the diagram, the "main relay" is what powers both. My guess is that it's stuck in the "on" position. Solution will be replace the relay.

Long term fix may be bigger relay.

Does the model you have have the vent that comes out at you. If so you need to take the screws out of the top front. Then after they are out not to hard slide the vent to the left give a little force. the vent comes off then you can access the screw that holds in the board
