Question about GE Profile Advantium SCB2001KSS Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven

Open Question

I have a ge Advantium Microwave Oven SCB2001CSS03. It started sparking so I had magnitron replaced. It was fine then started sparking again so the wave cover was replaced. Didn't help. Now the speedcook oven feature starts but stops after a couple seconds. Not wanting to call microwave repair guy again as this was his first micro/oven do I need to replace it?

I would start by checking all of the door switches. Once you remove the shell, you will see them all on a rail where the door latch goes. Some will be normally open, some normally closed. If they all check out, check all of your overloads and thermal fuses. They should all read closed. If they all check out as well, replace your magnatron, capacitor, and diodes.

SOURCE: GE Advantium stopped working completely...indicates no power but it is on.

It may be that your high voltage diode or capacitor has shorted.

The fuse is usually located behind the grille, on the floor of the oven behind the control panel, between the door switches, or on the filter board near where the cord comes into the unit.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.


At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

(if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html
(continuity can be good even though it is bad!)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html

To check the high voltage parts, you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

SOURCE: Microwave will turn on but not heat

Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.

If it additionally does not spin and no light, then check also the door switch.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).

I am getting arching in the oven when the only thing is themetal pan (rotating) the white dish and any food on the white dish What is happening?


Hello, thank you for posting your question on Fixya. I will be helping you with your Advantium oven. From your description it sounds like your having problem with the oven arcing. While you are using your microwave you can only have arcing occur while you are using the microwave or speedcook feature. While in either mode attention must be given to any mental in the oven. When microwaving place food and containers on the white ceramic tray only. The metal pan should be used during speedcook.

Happy Holidays!

Sounds like the door monitor switch, which would take out the internal ceramic fuse. I'd replace those two plus the primary and secondary door safety interlock switches.
