The Control Panel is failing. The Control Panel consists of a Keypad, and a Control PC (Printed Citcuit) Board. You can replace it as a complete unit. Not Cheap!!
Good Luck!

On a GE/Hotpoint, F3 means you have a failed keypad.

If you or someone you know might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

It's at http://www.microwavedisplay.com/keypad_replacement.pdf

If you'd rather have us fix it for you, we do that for $39.95 plus parts and you can visit us via our link here on Fixya http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: how do you replace the handle on my advantium 120 oven

If it's just the bottom one and you don't want to disassemble things to reconnect things right, drill a pilot hole in at an angle through handle and door to permit screwing in a wood screw to fix it up.  Brutish, yet sexy.

SOURCE: display panel works but no heat, no fan, turn table doesn't turn

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

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

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.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

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

There should 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.

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.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases in about a week or so.

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

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.

Control locked


Howdy:) Try this:

Microwave - Explanation of the Child Lock Out Feature
Many microwave control panels can be locked to prevent accidental use or access by children.
There are two different ways to lock the control panel:
1. Press and hold the CLEAR/OFF pad for 3 seconds. The display will show "LOCK" and then revert to the time of day.
A small "L" will appear in the corner of the display as a reminder that the control panel is locked. If anyone tries to use the microwave, the display will show "LOCK".
2. On some models, press and hold the 5 and 7 pads simultaneously for 3 seconds.
To unlock the control: Repeat the procedure which was used to lock the control. (Press and hold the CLEAR/OFF pad for about 3 seconds or hold the 5 and 7 pad simultaneously for 3 seconds.)

Hi, my problem is with my GE advantium speedcook microwave oven. When using 'speedcook' feature, the oven starts, then there is sparking inside the circuit board area, followed by a loud POP, and this...


  • Select the "Options" menu and adjust the clock display settings if the display is blank. Set the clock if the oven won't start. The clock must be set for the oven to work properly, as oven programming is dependent on the clock.
  • Close the door tightly if the oven won't start. The oven won't start if the door isn't closed. You can identify from the lights whether the oven failing to start is related to the door or to the power supply. If the control panel is illuminated and interior lights are on when you open the oven door, you can be sure the oven is receiving power and any starting problems are due to the door not being closed tightly.
  • Press and hold the "Clear/Off" button if the oven performs strangely. Be sure to hold it for a few seconds. This will reset the GE Advantium.
    But as you mentioned that there is /was a loud noise this is a indication of the unit make any usual noise (groaning, gurgling, etc.?) or was / is it either louder or quieter than normal?It may be as simple as the top door switch or its mount or it may be a bad magnetron or shorted diode.

    How do I unlock the control panel


    If this is a GE Advantium series microwave, the control panel can be locked to prevent children from manipulating the controls. To lock or unlock, press and hold the CLEAR/OFF button for 5 seconds. These instructions are included on page 36 of the owner's manual listed here:

    If you have questions, please post back and let me know. Please include your MODEL NUMBER if diffrent form the model you posted this question under. I hope this helps you.

    The display on my GE Advantium microwave oven shows "LOCKED". I tried holding the clear/off button but it won't clear. the microwave is unusable at this point


    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.

    If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

    If yours is an Advantium, one of these owner's manuals will help you set the clock if you need help:

    If you still need help, note that FixYa's Web site is currently not notifying us Experts when replies to our Clarification Requests are posted, so please post a new help request, but be sure to include your full model number from the tag in or on the unit.
