Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven
The squeaking is like two different squeaks. And cycle is loud chirp type squeak, grind less loud squeak, grind. First one tone of sqeak, then another tone of squeak with grinding noise....back and forth type of squeak like something is opening, closing, opening, closing.....or back/forth or.... whatever! The cycling of the loud chip squeak/grind/less loud squeak/grind is less than two seconds. The chirp noise is like either metal to metal, or rubber to metal as it's almost the same chirp squeak that my back door makes when I open or close the door...due to the rubber bottom strip I have to protect against airflow on the bottom of the door as it moves across the wood bottom frame of door. Or perhaps the loud chirp squeak is comparable to the squeak that your car windshield wipers make when you turn them on and your windshield glass is dry.......a rubber to glass type squeak noise. Thanks in advance for any advice or ideas on how to fix this!

Normally you have to remove the bottom cover of the microwave (looking up from the stove top) and then the motor is accessible.

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.

When door open the microwave should not work at all, if the turntable and light come on with the door open , if they do , then this is an additional problem with door switch and must be fixed.
Regarding humming noise and no heath, Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.
If it additionally does not spin and no light, then check also the door switch.
The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.
All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.
Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.
Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.
Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).
