Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven
Is there any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?
A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.
We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.
If it sounds the same as usual or a little louder, I would suspect the magnetron or high voltage diode has failed.
If it is much quieter than usual I would suspect a bad upper door switch.
The service manual is here.
Also see this file on door switches.
