I can't solve your problem, but mine did the same thing. I had the repairman look at it. I have an extended warranty so the call was free. He checked the fuse it was good.
I can't remember the exact words he used but it amounted to the brain of the microwave was broke.
They said it would cost to much to replace so they gave me my prorated purchase price.
I am going to call them Monday and ask exactly what the problem was.
I will get back to you.
It could be the same thing.

    mapmerk,
    I told you I would find out what they said was wrong with my Advantiumn 120 Oven. This what they told me.
    The reason my Microwave is completely dead is most the Control Board. When replacing the Control Board the Keypad will also have to replaced. These parts are not cheap. The Control Board sells for approximately $200.00 and the Keypad sells for approximately $150.00. If you decide this is something you would rather have a Appliance Repair Store do, that will be approximately $180.00
    I hope I have been of assistance.

My SCA 1000 completely shut down and won't come back on


There is probably an internal slow-blow fuse,they will electrically fatigue over time.It will require the cover to be removed to replace it,look for an inline fuse holder on the hot lead where the power cord enters the housing.

Advantium 120 oven quit working- only 3 yrs old!


You probably have a failed thermistor / temperature sensor.

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

If you need to remove it from the wall, y
ou can download GE installation instructions here.

New problems after installing light bulb.


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour.

Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

I would think you have a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

Power Out


Common problem with the Advantium. Culprit is a thermal cut off (TCO) for the cavity. Other posts detail where it is. I ordered a replacement at the link below.

Advantium 120 Complete black out


Since you've already checked the fuses, my next suspects would be the thermal cutouts (or thermostats or thermal fuses, depending on your exact model number). One would be located on the right side of the chassis right above the magnetron. The other would be located on the left side of the chassis. It's the flame sensor. You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 Advantium 120 is not actually the model number - you have to look on the tag around the door or inside the cavity for that. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk I appreciate your thoughtful rating.
