Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Hello, I have a 7 year old GE Advantium oven that the microwave has quit working on. The power and timer come on but the actually cooking element of the microwave is not working. When testing the oven and speedcook elements it appears that they also are not working properly. Any ideas of what could be wrong? Would it be cheaper/better to replace the oven or fix it?

I would first suspect the primary interlock (top door switch) or maybe that switch's mount is loose or broken.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

We have the service manual and have uploaded it here to help you.

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.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Our Advantium 120 oven (model # SCA1001KSS 02, Manufactured June 2008)is not working. Began w/ time not coming on when cooking and just a little green microwave light shows while cooking.


Typical of a control microchip failure caused by a power surge. With a microwave as old as yours, it is safest to simply replace the entire oven rather than attempt to fix it, as older magnetrons are likely to fail.

Light, fan and timer work but microwave does not


Microwaves are pretty much a non repair item. It will cost you more to fix than it would to replace.

I have a GE profile advantium 120 . The panel lights up I do not get an error code the timer works but it does not heat up. what could cause this


Check your power setting, making sure that you are cooking at 100%. Adjust if necessary.
It could also be a bad magnetron.
