Re: Flashing

Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

The waveguide cover is usually about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet. In some cases, it is a stirrer cover covering the top (ceiling) of the oven.

It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!

The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart or Lowe's.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.

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.

AEG Fault code E202 On opening the door of my microwave combi oven the interior light flashes accompanied by what sounds like a relay chattering and the display flashing between the normal display and...

I would suspect a bad door switch or door switch mount, or possibly a bad electrolytic capacitor on the control circuit board.


Beyond that, I could only speculate, since I don't have experience or information on AEG products.

Microwave has links all over the internet advertising a simple fix for microwave displays. I ordered one and they never sent it. Had to file a claim with Paypal. No communication until I threatened them, then they said it's on its way. I waited another week and it sitll didn't come. After six weeks of trying to get my money back, I finally got a refund. Now I have to start all over. Any suggestions for replacing a display BESIDES this sham operation?
