Change fuses on Advantium 120 model # SCA 1001 HSS 01

Hi, Thank you so much.

We have model # SCA 1001 HSS 01 built into an old cabinet making it difficult to remove.

A few days back it shut down mid cook cycle. I am told it's possible to check and change one of the two fuses without taking the unit down. Is this true?

I have access to the front side, under side, and right side. The rest are a nightmare to reach.

I bought the fuses wb27x10471 and wb27x10388.

Please let me know if there are step by step diagrams for this servicing as well.

There is a filter board assembly in these machines that does have a 20amp one time fuse. However i will say that normally this is not the problem with these. That fuse normally will blow due to the main control board. The fuse is bnot that hard to get to thou if you want to check it. From the top of the unit remove the screws holding the front top grille in place. Then holding the grille slide it left a little this will unlock the grille and then you can take it right off. From there the fuse is mounted on a little board on the right hand side of the microwave. You will see it towards the top of the unit mounted to the inside wall. However if you find that this fuse is good, since the unit is new i would call your number in your owner's manual for service. Microwave's can be very dangerous to work on, any thing beyond the fuse call a professional. The unit is still under warranty. Either you can check the fuse or call the manufacturer and have the tech when he comes show you where it is.

My SCA 1000 completely shut down and won't come back on

There is probably an internal slow-blow fuse,they will electrically fatigue over time.It will require the cover to be removed to replace it,look for an inline fuse holder on the hot lead where the power cord enters the housing.

Advantium 120 Complete black out

Since you've already checked the fuses, my next suspects would be the thermal cutouts (or thermostats or thermal fuses, depending on your exact model number). One would be located on the right side of the chassis right above the magnetron. The other would be located on the left side of the chassis. It's the flame sensor. You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: Advantium 120 is not actually the model number - you have to look on the tag around the door or inside the cavity for that. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: I appreciate your thoughtful rating.
