My GE Advantium 120 microwave went out. Nothing. I've taken it down from over the stove and have gotten the outer cabinet off. I've replaced the only fuses I see that are replaceable. I still get nothing. No power at all. Can you help?

Did you replace the fuse with one made especially for microwaves (available from radio shack)?

If you replaced the fuse with a correct one, and you still get nothing, and you are getting power to the main transformer inside, then chances are you transformer or magnetron have cooked; it will be cheper to buy a new oven than fix that one, as the parts will cost more than most new units, and that doesnt include the labor charges you will have to pay to get someone to properly install them.

Hello

This is a problem that many Advantium owners seem to have.

If it is still on warranty, please do no hesitate to take it back to the manufacturer.

But if not, check the circult and the plug if they are okay.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

    Please i will like to clarify this question. Is the microwave oven dead or it does not heat food? Please let me know in time.

    Thanks.

How to replace door switch on advantium


Happened to my 2005 Advantium120 twice, both times after extended cooking/simmering on the cooktop (17" below). Solution was to leave unplugged for a good 48 hours (to dry out?) then plug in again and all is good. GE says to either raise the microwave 4" or stop boiling pasta on the stove, neither a good solution. Good luck!

Need to know how to remove Advantium 120 convection/microwave oven Model SCA1000DWW03 from mounting above stove so that it can be taken to repair shop - problem is completely dead after power surge during...


Usually there are 3 or 4 mounting bolts located in the floor of the cabinet above. First you will have to disconnect the power and then the duck work if the unit is ventde to the outside. To remove the unit requires two people, one to support the unit and the other to remove the bolts. If you are doing it alone, quite difficult, you'll have to juryrig a deadman support. Ther is a wall plate behind the unit that has a lip that the back bottom of the microwve is locked into. After the bolts are removed slowly lower the front until you are able free the unit from the lip of the support plate.
