Ge microwave ceramic element

GE Profile Advantium 120 Convection m sca1000hbb 04 The ceramic heating elements are not working for the speedcook setting. The lower ceramic heater works on the oven setting but not on the speedcook setting. We checked the fuses and TCOs. There is power being sent to the ceramic heater from the relay and the ceramic element resistance is 22.4 ohms. All other elements seem to be working. Any ideas what to check?

I would first suspect the primary interlock (top door switch) or maybe that switch's mount is loose or broken.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

We have the service manual and have uploaded it here to help you.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

Hi,

Have you tried to reset it, if no, try this, Press the "Off/Clear' button to cancel anything on the display, and reset the microwave. This is a soft reset and will simply get you out of any program you have started. Press it when the cooking complete reminder appears on the display.
Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the microwave back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the microwave's memory. You will need to reset the time of day if you perform a hard reset.
Reset the time of day. Press the "Clock" button, and turn the dial to set the hours. Press the dial to enter. Follow the same procedure for the minutes and a.m. or p.m. Press the "Start" button to start the clock. This should help fix the problem.

GE Profile Advantium SCB2001FSS02 halogen heat won't turn off. All switched and digital panel working fine.


On an oven in the model SCB2001F series, when any of the Speedcook elements stay on when they should be off, there is a shorted relay and/or triac on the relay board.

I can repair your relay board, usually for $69.95, which includes insured return shipping. See my link below to e-mail me for full information or other free help.

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.

If the light is not operating properly, you will want to have it checked by an authorized service technician. To obtain in or out of warranty repair on Major Appliances, you may call 1-800-GE-CARES (800-432-2737) or schedule service online.
