Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven
Year built - 2004. Recently there has been an odor while microwave is running. Smells like overheated or melting wiring and does appear to be from the carousel. Is this a common problem? Is this the problem (the carousel needs replacement)? With the breaker off is it safe to remove/replace it if needed? What else could it be?
Spent way too much to just buy a new one and repair companies cost too much.
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.
