Question about GE Advantium SCA2000B Microwave Oven
Assuming the AC line voltage is correct, vents are not blocked, and the filters are not blocked, it's probably the magnetron.
If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (10 years) but out of the original full warranty (1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.
We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here for free download to help you.
If you or someone you know want to replace the magnetron yourself, you will need to remove the oven from the wall.
If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here or in this case, they are also in the service manual above.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts & accessoiries by entering your full model number here.
Under warranty, G.E. will send you the magnetron to do it yourself. Call them at 888-239-6832.
Be persistent. You may have to speak with a supervisor.
If it is not within the magnetron warranty, you can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
