Question about GE Advantium SCA2000B Microwave Oven
There's a door on the inside right, next to the magnetron with a bulb behind it, it sticks. how do I get at this door and fix it.
That would be the damper door. You can see a video of it *** seen through the control panel opening here.
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 can't get to it from the control panel opening, you'll have to remove the oven from the wall and take off 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.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
Chances are it is listed as a damper assembly, so if the motor is bad, you'll need to look for a GE part number on it. It would be in the form WB##X####, e.g.
If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

It sounds like the magnetron may have
either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high
voltage required to run it.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT
This is a job for a professional but if
you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
If it is the type with an "Invertor", they are not user serviceable and must be repaired by an authorised Panasonic agent for continued safety, otherwise if conventional;
Make sure the !!!!any capacitors are discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.
