Question about GE Advantium SCA2000B Microwave Oven
I have an Advantium SCA2000FWW 3 (2006) that suddenly ceased to function as a microwave oven. The fan, lights & heat lamp section still work normally. When the microwave is started the rotating door for the cavity light rotates closed, does a little shimmy clicking the microswitch several times then returns to open position. The primary door interlock switch (top) has burned the nylon plug cover dark brown with minor blistering. I removed that switch as well as the other door switches and the cavity light door switch and they all seem to properly open and close contact. The PCB Relay 2 is also closing contact when the microwave is activated. Is it possible the interlock switche(s) could fail in such a way as to indicate open when they should be closed or vise versa?
The primary interlock switch on my Advantium has failed twice. The replacement part is available at: appliancepartspros.com part no. for my Advantium was AP2622452 and it cost $11.74 + $6.95 shipping.
For what it's worth, my nylon connector and wire covering were also scorched a bit but the last primary interlock switch lasted me for over a year.
