Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven

2 Answers

Oven died while using convection feature

I was using the convection feature (oven temp was set at 425 & preheated) and after about 10 min of cooking time, the whole thing went dead.. checked for pwr at the outlet, that was okay.. Unplugged the oven and waited about an hour for it to cool down hoping some thermal fuse device would reset, but no help.. Any ideas ???

Thanks for the help !! It turned out to be the oven cavity TCO which is in the upper l/h corner under the grill.. I ordered the part which cost me $21.50 incl shipping.. It's not a big deal to change.. I'm just a little ticked off because I've only used this oven 3-4 times.. It was manufactured in July 2003 (I've had it in storage for two years untill my kitchen renovation was done).. If it's acting up now what else am I in store for ?? Well thanks again !!

It may be the main fuse inside, or it may be the thermal cutout.

While a thermostat will reset after cooling, thermal cutouts (TCOs) are thermal fuses, one-time devices that must be replaced.

Is the sharp above range microwave model r-1871t recirculating?


According to the Sharp product site, http://www.sharpusa.com/ForHome/HomeAppliances/Microwaves/Models/R1871.aspx , the R-1871 is a convection and microwave oven. The manual describes using the convection oven feature on page 18 (page 20 of the PDF). The direct link to the manual is: http://files.sharpusa.com/Downloads/ForHome/HomeAppliances/MicrowaveOvens/Manuals/mic_man_R1872.pdf . The convection button is on the top left in the middle group of buttons. You use the numeric power level buttons to set the oven temperature. When you program convection cooking, the 1 button will bring the oven to 100 degrees F. The 6 button gets the oven to 350 degrees F.

I hope this helps.

Convection oven shuts off after a minute when trying to bake. Does this during Compubake also.. Does not preheat


Possibly a bad oven temp sensor. If the uinit doesnt read a temperature it will shut down to prevent a fire or over heating. The temp sensor is a thermister A temperature variable resistor that changes value as the temp changes. so If the main board doesnt get a response within a vertain resistance range it shuts things down. Sometimes since those parts are in the actual cooking area and subject to the heat and steam from cooking they can rust and break, or just get old and break. Or slam the door and break, you get the idea!!

My Sharp microwave convection oven (R-967M / R96STM) cuts out during convection pre-heating and cooking, It appears it stops heating after 1 min. If the START button is pressed again the oven starts...


Also the fact it is a convection oven could mean the oven temperature sensor is not picking up the oven temp. it is not telling the machine it is there by the board seeing its resistance, the unit will shut off as a safety feature. The oven sees temperature by reading the value of a temperature dependent resistor. As the temperature changes so does the value of the component ( oven temp sensor) that way the unit determines the temperature inside the unit. Sometimes those sensors will break since they are in the area with the heat and moisture, they get old and break.
