Question about GE Advantium SCA2000B Microwave Oven

1 Answer

GE Advantium Microwave section doesn't work.

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 middle interlock door switch on many microwaves is supposed to close when the door opens in order to blow a safety fuse in the event that the primary door switch failed to open it's circuit so the user does not get blasted with radiation when the door opens.

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.

Microwave function not working properly on GE Advantium SCA2000BCC03


I assume you're talking about the internal cooling fan, which should always be on when you're microwaving.

If it is not coming on, the magnetron can be destroyed from overheating!

The turntable and and cooling fan are both controlled by relay RY17 on the main circuit board.

We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service in about a week.

Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
