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.
If it still fails, please post a new help request with the full model number from the tag in or on the unit.

The capacitor and diode will not cause the problem you describe. You will not be able to measure the diode with an ohmmeter, the forward breakdown is about 5-6Vdc. The normal failure mode for the capacitor is a short which will blow the fuse.
If any high voltage components go bad, the microwave will operate normally just not heat.
You should focus on the door interlock switches and safety thermostats, especially the cavity thermostat located somewhere on the top of the cavity.

To make a high voltage diode tester, wire up a 9V battery, LED and a 220 ohm resistor. Hooked up one way the LED will light reverse the connection the LED will not light.

If you need further assistance, let me know

When door open light flashes and relays clicking. unplugged and waited reset still does same action


This could be an error code indicating a bad primary door switch, bad cavity thermal protector, or a bad fuse.

It would depend on the brand of oven.

Why won't my interior microwave light turn off and my microwave won't start?


It sounds to me that your door switches aren't working.Your oven is protected by a couple of switches that engage when you open or close the door.They control a couple of safety features and also your interior light.One of them seems defective.

How to change nightlight bulb on ge advantium 120 oven


Advantium - Interior Light Operation While Microwaving

The Advantium 240 oven interior (cavity) light will illuminate anytime the door is open. However, due to the dark tint on the oven door, there is not a light on while cooking since the food would not be visible using the interior lamp.
Food may be viewed during a microwave cycle by pressing the Microwave/Oven Light pad.

One of the Upper Level Speedcook lamps will come on for 5 seconds. The Microwave/Oven Light pad can be pressed up to 5 times during a microwave cooking cycle. The limit of 5 times is to prevent excessive heat on microwave cookware from the Speedcook lamp.

The Advantium 120 oven cavity is illuminated anytime the door is opened and while the unit is in the microwave only mode. As a result it will not have the Microwave/Oven Light pad.

There are usually three interlock switches in the door mechanism. One is in the power circuit for the magnetron, one is in the relay drive circuit, and the third is a logic input to the controller. Many times the one in the relay drive circuit turns on the oven lamp when you open the door at the same time it disconnects the magnetron relay. If the lamp relay is stuttering irregularly, that door switch may be going bad.

Another possibility (if this happens only when you open the door while the oven is running) is that the magnetron power door switch is stuck in the on position. This is not a safe condition. Replace that door switch ASAP, and get in the habit of turning off the oven before opening the door.

I would suspect a bad door switch or door switch mount, or possibly a bad electrolytic capacitor on the control circuit board.

See:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt

Beyond that, I could only speculate, since I don't have experience or information on AEG products.

Yes. One of your door switches is not working. It could be an alignment issue or a faulty switch. There are actually 3 switches in the door latch area.

You can check the relay and related driving circuit. If there is a short in the relay driving circuit there is chance for this type of problem. or the micro processor may be defective.
