    What's the full model number form the tag in the unit? When you hit Start to
    microwave, do the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable all come on?

    We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are operating here. Any unusual noises? Is
    it louder or quieter than usual? These answers will help
    me judge whether it's in the high voltage
    section (magnetron, transformer, or diode) or the control section
    (door switch or control board relay or connection).

Check the upper door switch first. It may be a simple fix.

Our Advantium 120 oven (model # SCA1001KSS 02, Manufactured June 2008)is not working. Began w/ time not coming on when cooking and just a little green microwave light shows while cooking.


Typical of a control microchip failure caused by a power surge. With a microwave as old as yours, it is safest to simply replace the entire oven rather than attempt to fix it, as older magnetrons are likely to fail.

Only microwave not working


Chances are you have a bad secondary / cook relay on the control circuit board. The relay can be replaced. See details here.

Problem with the GE Advantium (model sca1001fss01) Convection / Microwave Oven Everything works except the microwave. It makes a sound like its working, table turns, but does not heat or cook.


sounds like the magnetron. Youll have to have a technician replace it. if you have a warranty just call the company and they should take care of you.

The turntable of my Advantium microwave model SCA1000 has stopped turning. It will sometimes move very sluggish but when the plate is on will not turn at all. Can you tell me what needs to be done to fix...


The Turn Table motor needs to be replaced in the oven, this will require dis-assembly to get at the part, and please remember there is dangerous high voltage present if you are going to do the work yourself.

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.

GE Advantium Microwave not heating food


If you want it fixed call sears for service. I would not recommend taking this microwave apart if you dont work on them for a living. only because there are 14 million thing that need to be remove to do a simple repair.
