Question about GE Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Our GE Advantium model SCA2001 FSS02 has had the turntable motor running constantly since I spilled water in the over. I have unplugged and replugged it with no change in symptoms. It has been about 3 days now.

We generally do not advise anyone to work on these because they are dangerous to both the person working on them and someone using it if they are not serviced correctly.

There is a dangerous amount of electricity from the capacitor which should be discharged first (especially on this model).

The unit also needs to be checked for microwave leakage whenever it is opened up.

If you confirm that the unit is receiving the correct amount of voltage at the board, that is how far we would recommend testing. and the circuit to be checked

GE advantium 120 convection Cafe microwave making rythmic sound when plugged in and not running. Is coming from the right side of oven Any ideas what it is and how it can be fixed?


The only cause of clunking I can think of is the turntable motor not engaging the drive spindle of the platter properly. Remove the platter and see if the noise goes away.

Why is my GE Advantium SCA2001 blowing the main fuse?


Yeah pal, you've not gone deep enough yet. You'll find a power wire bare inside the unit, pull it apart and tape that wire up to stop it from grounding out and blowing the fuse.

Re: "my GE Advantium SCA2001


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Advantium microwave won't stop.


If it runs when the door is open it's a bad interlock assembly

Turntable


Remove the glass table and watch the drive spindle to see if it is turning when the unit runs; just put a cup of water so the magnetron is not without load, they can be damaged otherwise.
If it doesn't turn, gently try to turn the spindle with your fingers.  If it turns manually, then the motor has failed. If it doesn't, then some foodstuff has managed to freeze the spindle.
In the latter case, pull the plug from the wall, use some foaming cleanser (it's less wet) and try to get some under or around the spindle. Let it soak overnight, then try to turn the spindle with your fingers again.  If it's now free, mop up and remove as much of the remaining cleanser as you can, leaving the table out, put a cup of water or preferably a bowl with more volume, in the unit, let it run for some minutes to try to dry the rest of the cleanser out.
Put the table back in to see if it will now turn.
If this doesn't work, it will be necessary to replace the motor.  Since this is a unit I don't know, I can't predict if it is a DIY project or not and the dealer may ask an unrealistic price for the replacement.

Grinding noise/noisy turntable


Your turntable motor is probably failing.

If you or someone you know decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Normally you have to remove the bottom cover of the microwave (looking up from the stove top) and then the motor is accessible.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

GE Advantium SCB200/SCB2001 electrical odor


Some liquid may have gotten down in the turntable motor or it may just be going bad. It may also be the coupler. This is not an unusual problem.

It's not too hard a job for the DIYer. Unplug it from the wall, remove the cover underneath to access the motor screws, then the couple and motor will come out.
