Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Advantium 120 fan and tray keep running

The halogen light blew out, so I replaced it, along with both fuses, but the fan keeps running and the tray keeps spinning whenever I close the door, even when I press clear. It still cooks when I press the right buttons, but I can't close the door when I'm not using it, because it keeps running. I've tried turning off the breaker, same problem.

    I had the exact scenario happen. I opened the door to see the halogen

    light pop. The door needs to remain open when not in use otherwise the

    fan continually runs. We have a GE repair man coming next week, but I

    would like to see if anyone else has had this problem and what's the fix.

    I have the same problem with the fan, after the inside light blew. I can't close the door because the fan keeps running.



    Did anyone find a fix?

Looking at the service manual here, I'd bet that relay number RY6 is shorted on the "sub PC" relay circuit board, or its driver transistor on the main "smart" board is shorted.

Unless your technician does component-level repair, he'll probably want to just sell you a new sub board, or main ("smart") board, or both.

They list for $64.78 and $109.83 respectively here. Hard to tell what they'll mark them up to.

Then add about $150-200 for the labor.

On the other hand, we regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

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

Or you can tell your technician about our services.

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

It's pretty simple as long as you have an offset phillips screwdriver...

Of course, be sure to disconnect power to microwave and be sure not to touch the new halogen bulb with fingers.

STEP-BY-STEP:
First, remove upper vent panel and remove inner filter (same directions for just replacing inner carbon filter):

Then, remove inner plastic grille (2 screws) and final screw on left side of metal "air duct" - here's where you'll need the offset screw driver (and a little patience!):

Then, you can gently lift the sheet metal panel, find the light housing, squeeze and remove/replace :)

That's it...just replace bulb and reverse for reassembly. Be sure to keep track of screw locations there are various sizes/lengths used.
