GE Advantium PSB2201NSS Technical Service Guide

Model Number: PSB2201NSS
Brand: GE Advantium
Age: 13 months


PSB2201NSS GE Advantium 240V. 13 months. Went dead (2nd time now, first time was replaced as it happened within three weeks of installation. Read on Servicetechhelp.com that it is probably the Oven Cavity TCO. After seaching online, I have the part number WB21x10046. I know where to buy it but can't determine how to access it even with the GE schematic. Is there a GE Consumer Service Training Technical Service Guide that I can download for this model? Thanks.

Most repair warranties are only 30-90 days, but you might consider asking the servicer if they'll cover it. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your actual model number (like SCA1000DBB03, not Advantium 120) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 That part is the thermal cutout (TCO) or thermal fuse. It's reference number 1430 on the first diagram listed there.

SOURCE: replacing the cavity light on the g e advantiom zsc 1001

The bulb is a halogen type and there is a service kit that slighty changes the way it is mounted. It is not easy to get to from the top unless you do it for a living. Call GE Factory Service for the kit and a nice smiling technician to come out and take care of it. It may still be under warranty. 1-800-432-2737

SOURCE: I have a dead GE Advantium 120 Microwave in my RV.

This heat could have come from excess current draw due to a failing part, such as the magnetron, or an improper voltage level at the outlet. It should measure 105-125VAC.

A loose connection can also result in heat and melting.

I would recommend replacing the section of wire that's melted. You need to make a good solid connection with proper wire nuts and solid crimped connectors.

If you think the TCO may have been stressed, it should be replaced, too.

I would also check the fuse holder by seeing if you can twirl the fuse with your bare fingers while it's in the holder. If so, then it is too loose and the holder must be replaced.

You cannot just squeeze it tighter with pliers, because metal fatigue will make it go loose again, possibly resulting in a melted fuse.

Lastly, I would replace the primary interlock (top door switch). See http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt.

Then make sure that no one opens the door while the oven is cooking unless it is specifically called for in the cooking cycle. Opening the door while it is cooking leads to premature switch failure and heat / melting of the switches connectors and wiring.

You can find the full service manual online here.

Yours may have the revised circuit. You can see the "mini-manual" for that version here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

SOURCE: My advantium just quit.

I don't see why not. If you can make good the connections and use ceramic couplings, due to the heat, plastic will melt and cause a hazzard.

Yes, it is possible. And it's dangerous. If it isn't under warranty, or you can't have it repaired. I suggest unplugging it when it's not in use.

GE Advantium won't heat


Actually, these have a 10-year warranty on the magnetron and on the halogen speedcook lamps.

GE will even send you the magnetron to replace it yourself. Call them at 888-239-6832.

The full service manual with installation instructions is here.

Part ordering help (if you need other parts) is here.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.


If you or someone you know want to replace the magnetron yourself, you will need to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward. Thewy are in the service manual.

You can also download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions
here.

If you prefer to replace it though, I would suggest doing Google searches to try to find 240V microwave ovens. They're the exception.

GE Profile Advantium Wall Oven 240 volts 950 Watts


How long does it run before it fails? Does it look like the display is getting scrambled characters? I'm leaning toward a bad magnetron, but it may be more or less than that. If you can give more details and especially the actual full model number (as opposed to the model name Advantium 120) that would help. Thanks!
