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.

Otherwise, see this video for help.

    Forgot to mention that since
    it's new (presumably less than one year old) it would be fully covered under warranty.

    I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Hi, quite often this is due to a bad door switch located inside behind the area where the door hooks go into the oven.
Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure.
In some cases, the problem is a bad connection or a bad relay on the control board. That's something we see from time to time, and we repair those nationwide for $32.50, but it's usually a door switch.

It can be fixed......

  • 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.

    There is a circuitry problem. Nothing should be on when the door closes and could be dangerous to diagnose for the untrained and inexperienced.

    First, order by number. Some illustrations are general. Second, you may find a board rebuilder who will fix yours or exchange it.

    I've done this and found that the correct product was sent and worked well.

    Yes, the fan blade is hitting something inside.Usually by opening the microwave, you can slide or reposition the plastic fan blade on the shaft.Probably this happened in shipping to the store where you bought it.CAUTON:make sure the unit is unplugged before you attempt this.Other option is return for replacement.
