Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven
After using the microwave feature, the door was closed and we noticed the upper heating element light up bright. When door opens, element goes off. When door is closed element comes on and stays on. Rechecked all keypad settings and unplugged it for a while, but problem still exists after resetting.
If the actual model number is SCA1000 then you can find the manual online here: http://products.geappliances.com/ProdContent/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SKUOBJECTS&DOCUMENT=Use%20and%20Care%20Manual&SKU=SCA1000DBB If that URL doesn't work, here is the compact version: http://tinyurl.com/yarzau If your model number is different, you can enter it here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/

Looking at the schematic in the service manual here, I would say relay RY6 on the small sub PCB (relay board) has shorted contacts.
That's the relay that runs both the fan and turntable.
It's possible that it may be a bad connection or driving component on that board, but in my experience, it's virtually always a stuck relay.
The part number on the relay as shown in the photo is hard to read, but it looks like "OJ-SH-112LM".
I should have one of these or I can point you to one if you want to contact me with the exact number.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
