Question about GE Advantium SCA2000B Microwave Oven

Open Question

Advantium 220V damper door motor clicking

My Advantium damper door motor clicks when the unit is not in use, it thinks the damper door is not closed all the way and continues to try to close the damper. If you open the damper door by hand the unit will close it and the clicking stops. It will start again as soon as you use the unit. I have replaced the door sensing switch and the damper door switch and still have the issue. Before I change out the damper door is there anything else that could be causing this?

Excellent camera work! This is very helpful.

That door you mention is part of the "damper assembly".

In that damper assembly is a damper switch which detects the position of the damper door.

If the switch goes bad, or there's some kind of obstruction of the damper door, the control board will try to run the damper motor to close or open the door, as appropriate, depending on whether you're cooking in microwave mode or speedcook / convection mode.

It's not listed as a separate part, but that damper switch should be the same kind as the upper and lower door switches to the left of the control panel.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

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. Maybe you saw that already?

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

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: GE Advantium 120 Microwave fan stays on, off only when door open

Looking at the schematic in the service manual here, I would say relay RY6 on the small sub PCB (relay board) has shorted contacts.

That's the relay that runs both the fan and turntable.

It's possible that it may be a bad connection or driving component on that board, but in my experience, it's virtually always a stuck relay.

The part number on the relay as shown in the photo is hard to read, but it looks like "OJ-SH-112LM".

I should have one of these or I can point you to one if you want to contact me with the exact number.

SOURCE: Clicking noise whem door is closed

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Otherwise, see this video for help.

SOURCE: advantium 120 blew breaker when door was closed. I

I'd suspect the interlock monitor switch is stuck, or its mounting bracket is out of adjustment. This is designed to blow the fuse if you try to run the oven while the door is open. The switch is supposed to open when you close the door. This switch is replaceable, but you should have this oven repaired by a professional. There are lethal voltages present with the cover off, and the possibility of microwave leakage is the repairs aren't done correctly.

I have a Sharp R1870 micro/convection unit. unit kicks off after 60 seconds. have to restart then kicks off again in 60 seconds.


This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, either the switch or motor or the damper door may be binding.

The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.

Sharp models stop after 59 seconds.

See the attached sample drawing for a typical damper assembly.

I have the applicable service manuals for these models and have uploaded it to my site here and here to help you.

Please include FULL model number*, FCC ID number*, + detailed symptom information. ( * on the tag in cooking cavity or around door frame or control frame or on back)

I have an Advantium 240 mounted over the range. There's a little trap door that covers an interior light while cooking. My door gets stuck and I hear a motor run. How can this be repaired?


That's the damper. It has to be closed when microwaving, and open when convection cooking.

See my video and also see the description text here GE Advantium microwave oven clicking noisy SCA1000 SCA2000 for more information.

Please note the phone number in the video is incorrect. See the Web site for more.

R-1874 shuts down after 59 seconds


That switch is supposed to tell the computer if the damper door is open or closed. If it does not go to zero ohms, the CPU doesn't know what to do. Check the thermistor too...... just in case...

GE Advantium Microwave section doesn't work.


The primary interlock switch on my Advantium has failed twice. The replacement part is available at: appliancepartspros.com part no. for my Advantium was AP2622452 and it cost $11.74 + $6.95 shipping.

For what it's worth, my nylon connector and wire covering were also scorched a bit but the last primary interlock switch lasted me for over a year.

Please note that I am not an expert at repairing appliances and that I assume no responsibility or liability for any attempt you may make to repair your own appliance.

Unit runs for 59 seconds and shuts off


This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the switch or motor, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.

The damper is a door located on the right side of the innards. The damper closes and opens depending on cooking mode.

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
