    The microwave feature abruptly stopped. All lights and the halogen oven work; but the microwave simply doesn't heat anything. How can we tell if it is the magnetron?

    Thanks!

    All aspects of my advantium are working except the heat in microwave mode

    For a while the microwave would work most of the time, but on occasion, not. When we tried to reheat the it item, it would work. Just recently the microwave no longer works at all, but all other aspects of the unit seem to perform.

The solution to this problem is to replace the magnetron. I had the same symptoms, and I got a used magnetron and replaced it. It takes some advanced electrical skill, and you have to disassemble the oven all the way to the inside stainless steel. I have the same exact model, manufactured in November of 1999.

    If your Advantium oven is less than 10 years old (and you can verify this), the magnetron is still covered under warranty. GE offered a 10 year part cost warranty on the magnetron but this does not cover the entire product. You will have to pay the labor charge for getting it replaced but that should be much less than the cost of the magnetron assembly.

Seems to be a issue with the magnetron , which is your source of energy for heating. the new microwaves out do not store voltage in the magnetron like the old type , thus more not as durable or long lasting as the old type , go and get a magnetron

How to change nightlight bulb on ge advantium 120 oven


Advantium - Interior Light Operation While Microwaving

The Advantium 240 oven interior (cavity) light will illuminate anytime the door is open. However, due to the dark tint on the oven door, there is not a light on while cooking since the food would not be visible using the interior lamp.
Food may be viewed during a microwave cycle by pressing the Microwave/Oven Light pad.

One of the Upper Level Speedcook lamps will come on for 5 seconds. The Microwave/Oven Light pad can be pressed up to 5 times during a microwave cooking cycle. The limit of 5 times is to prevent excessive heat on microwave cookware from the Speedcook lamp.

The Advantium 120 oven cavity is illuminated anytime the door is opened and while the unit is in the microwave only mode. As a result it will not have the Microwave/Oven Light pad.

Some problem in poultry cooking


You have to kill the chicken first!!

Seriously what are you trying to do???, if it's cooking a whole chicken in a microwave, it is difficult to get a thorouh cooking because usually whole chickens are hollow in the middle, so you need to put stuffing in it to get a better performance as microwavs tend to heat in the middle of stuff, (air is hard to heat) try a stuffing with lots of moist (water) it will steam kook the chicken with a lot of flavour... remember to avoid stuffing that contains beens or seeds as they could explode inside the chicken and ruine a good supper... personally I prefer my chicken oven baked (all night at a low temp) I know I'm not GREEN by saying that I only use my microwave to quickly heat up left overs LOL!

Microwave lights and fans work but the food does not cook


If the microwave sounds normal, but not heating, then the magnetron is bad and needs to be replaced. If it is making a humming noise, then the diode is bad. I recommend that if it is the magnetron, ou also replace the diode.

Our dgs61st DeLonghi gas oven was installed on Wed. 3rd Nov. We gave it the recommended 'burn off', today we have put a chicken in and started cooking it on heat 140/155, after 20 minutes the oven is...


Could it perhaps be the chicken fat burning?
I take it you are using convection only and not microwave power because if you use microwave power and do not contain the fat in with the chicken, the fat will be heated to its flash point by the microwaves and smoke heavilly.
Hope this explained it for you.

Check your power setting, making sure that you are cooking at 100%. Adjust if necessary.
It could also be a bad magnetron.
