Question about Microwave Ovens
We have a GE Advantium oven. It is about 10 years old. It just stopped heating and cooking although the turntable inside the oven still rotates during the cooking cycle. Is this something that can be fixed? If so, would you have any idea how much to repair, or should we be thinking about replacing this unit. Thank you for help.
Model no. SCA 2000 BWW 03
Does it sound louder or quieter than normal?
We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are operating here.
I'd say you have a bad primary interlock (top door switch) or that switch's mount is loose or broken, or you have a bad relay (RY2) on the "smart board".
While we repair these control panel assemblies on a regular basis for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service with a full one year warranty, I would advise you or someone you know to check the door switch and its mount first.
We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.
It will give you safety info, step by step help in disassembly, troubleshooting tips, and part numbers.
You will need the free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it already.
You can order parts by entering your full model number or part number here, but if a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.
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.
