Question about GE Advantium SCA2001BSS Microwave Oven
Hi the problem with microwaves is they can be dangerous to work with as the risk to your and other family members safety is not worth taking risks with so unless you are sure you know what you are doing then leae to an expert.
If you know what you are doing then you could look at the board where the power cable goes into the power pack on the board itself now their is a couple of things that could have gone wrong the first is over heating this isnt usually the main cause of problem the main cause is with the unit shorting out due to damp atmosphere when cooking frozen foods.
Some microwaves will have an internal fuse so it would be best to look at this and check for fault failing this or if their is no fuse then it is going to be the power relay will need replacing.
I will see if i can find the schematics for your make and model then i can get part number also look yourself use search engine and look for schematics for your unit this will also give you readings to check so you can narrow down the fault using multimeter let me know what you want to do

It sounds like the magnetron may have
either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high
voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.
