Since you've already checked the fuses, my next suspects would be the thermal cutouts (or thermostats or thermal fuses, depending on your exact model number). One would be located on the right side of the chassis right above the magnetron. The other would be located on the left side of the chassis. It's the flame sensor. You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 Advantium 120 is not actually the model number - you have to look on the tag around the door or inside the cavity for that. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk I appreciate your thoughtful rating.

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.

The service manual is here and you can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts here.

I have a 4 year old Advantium 120. I bought it for $685 and had no problems x 4 years. Now renting the house and the unit stopped working. The repairman says there are two switches and a thermostat which...


Considering the possibility that replacement of the switches & thermostat may not solve the problem, I would likely look into replacement. Unfortunately, microwave repair parts are expensive and non-returnable.
http://www.repairfaq.org/sam/micfaq.htm has a section on this decision.
Also, broken units still have some resale value.

How do I clean the oven in the Advantium 120


We have the same oven and we use glass cleaner and soft scrub cleanser. If the glass on the top of the oven (where the cooking light is located) is really dirty from splatter, you can use a razor blade scrapper. This is the same type of scraper you would use to clean paint of a window. Our Advantium actually came with a scraper from the factory.

Hello, I have a 7 year old GE Advantium oven that the microwave has quit working on. The power and timer come on but the actually cooking element of the microwave is not working. When testing the oven...


I would first suspect the primary interlock (top door switch) or maybe that switch's mount is loose or broken.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

We have the service manual and have uploaded it here to help you.

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 only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

GE Advantium 120 Opinion


I have had an Advantium for about 3 or 4 yrs and would use nothing else! When this one wears out I will buy another one! I hardly ever use my regular oven any more! Hope this helps.

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.

Power Out


Common problem with the Advantium. Culprit is a thermal cut off (TCO) for the cavity. Other posts detail where it is. I ordered a replacement at the link below.
