it is automatic, you can not turn it off. it is placed there so that the food you are heating is heated evenly. not on one side only.

SOURCE: Turntable

Remove the glass table and watch the drive spindle to see if it is turning when the unit runs; just put a cup of water so the magnetron is not without load, they can be damaged otherwise.
If it doesn't turn, gently try to turn the spindle with your fingers.  If it turns manually, then the motor has failed. If it doesn't, then some foodstuff has managed to freeze the spindle.
In the latter case, pull the plug from the wall, use some foaming cleanser (it's less wet) and try to get some under or around the spindle. Let it soak overnight, then try to turn the spindle with your fingers again.  If it's now free, mop up and remove as much of the remaining cleanser as you can, leaving the table out, put a cup of water or preferably a bowl with more volume, in the unit, let it run for some minutes to try to dry the rest of the cleanser out.
Put the table back in to see if it will now turn.
If this doesn't work, it will be necessary to replace the motor.  Since this is a unit I don't know, I can't predict if it is a DIY project or not and the dealer may ask an unrealistic price for the replacement.

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.

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

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.

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

You might have set the child lock. Look in the manual. It is on P.36 in my manual.

Turntable does not turn, Replaced Rotating ring assembly still not turning?


It may be the servo motor that powers the turntable or the belt has snapped or come off. It is unlikely that you can get to the motor as the case is fitted with security screws. If so, you will need to take it to a service engineer.

Fan runs when door is closed and no time set.


Some GE units were starting on their own. I would definitely unplug this oven and call GE to make sure yours wasn't one of the ones being re-called.

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.

The microwave is not heating. Light comes on, fan comes on and turntable rotates but nothing gets hot.


either your hi-voltage diode,capacitor or magnetron are defective,if your not electrically savvy,don't open the unit up, by hi-voltage i mean the cap can store up to 2,000volts a.c.appx 18 times whats at your plug in receptacle,if you do tackle it,make sure to completely discharge the cap before attempting any repair...gooid luck and be safe

Sensor error and periodic beeping for Advantium 120


If the internal cooling fan does not come on when you're microwaving, the magnetron will overheat and the thermal cutout will be tripped, causing the oven to go dead until it cools back down.

If this happens more than a few times, the magnetron can be damaged.

If the turntable is not turning (assuming it's not set to be off) when you're microwaving, then the problem lies on the relay circuit board (sub PC).

If the turntable is wokring and the fan is not, then the fan motor or wiring is at fault.

At this point, with such odd problems, I recommend that you contact GE customer service for your nearest GE-authorized service center

GE Customer Service is here.

Good luck.

Arcing


My Advantium was arching at the turntable. Replaced the turntable roller assembely (that hold the metal or glass plate) and the arching went away.
