Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Advantium readout flashing

The readout panel on our GE Advantium Model SCA 2001 BSS 03 oven mounted over our cooktop in place of a standard large microwave works properly for the past 5+ years. The visual readout has just recently started to have intermitant lines flashing accross the readout. The time and all use of the oven appears to be working normally but the flashing is something that we just recently noticed. I wonder if this is an indication of impending failure. Any thoughts or advice you can provide would be appreciated.

I would say it is a sign of trouble.

Not to say that it's catastrophic, but on these models part can be pretty expensive.

Our Advantium 120 oven (model # SCA1001KSS 02, Manufactured June 2008)is not working. Began w/ time not coming on when cooking and just a little green microwave light shows while cooking.


Typical of a control microchip failure caused by a power surge. With a microwave as old as yours, it is safest to simply replace the entire oven rather than attempt to fix it, as older magnetrons are likely to fail.

The led panel is has flashing dashes intermitent


You got it. It is the control board, that is the root of your problem.
You might be able to pick one up at your local appliance parts store or authorised service center for your microwave.

Best of Luck.

I have a GE Advantium SCA 200 oven that stopped working as we were cooking. the Breaker is OK and there is power to the receptacle. Is there a fuse in the unit that can be replaced without a technician?


Yes, it is a ceramic fuse inside the unit that can be easily purchased at your local Radio Shack. Take the original there and they will find the replacement fuse. Just unplug the unit before working on the electrical parts...

GE Advantium SCA 1000 top rear cooking bulb blown


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First please disconnect the power of the main fuse or circuit breaker panel and remove the screw from the side of the light compartment cover and lower the cover until it stops. Now gently pull the bulb from the receptacle. Raise the light cover and replace the screw and then connect the oven with the mains and switch it on.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

I purchased an Advantium 120 SCA 1001KSS my kitchen plan was to install this into the wall not over the cooktop. The salesperson said I could. The installation information does not support that as I think...


I'm not finding a trim kit for those, but it's best to contact GE customer service here.

That is considered an accessory, so it;s not something I commonly search for.

Have to Slam Door to get it to work - Advantium 120


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

This can be caused by slamming the door or by habitually opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
