Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven

Open Question

My 240 Advantium (SCA2000BBB 03) had worked great for 10 years and then the Microwave stopped working intermittently and then finally completely. A local repairman replaced a micro-switch in the door latch and after a month the microwave is not working again. The lights still work fine. Would it be likely that the micro-switch failed again or is something else wrong?

If you want it fixed call sears for service. I would not recommend taking this microwave apart if you dont work on them for a living. only because there are 14 million thing that need to be remove to do a simple repair.

That would be 'the primary interlock (top door switch), or its mount may be loose or cracked.

It may be a coincidence, or not. Hard to say.

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.

But it could be misalignment from the door work. Too bad he didn't just replace the door handle. That's such an easy job.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

It's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

It will give you safety info, step by step help in disassembly, troubleshooting tips, and part numbers.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it already.

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

Some relays must have got stuck open. Check the following schematic. You should check the Main relay, RY14 and RY15 for lamps and relay RY6 for the fan.

For your own safety, always make sure you are working safe. Microwave units can be very deadly. Consult an expert if in doubt.

GE Advantium won't heat


Actually, these have a 10-year warranty on the magnetron and on the halogen speedcook lamps.

GE will even send you the magnetron to replace it yourself. Call them at 888-239-6832.

The full service manual with installation instructions is here.

Part ordering help (if you need other parts) is here.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.


If you or someone you know want to replace the magnetron yourself, you will need to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward. Thewy are in the service manual.

You can also download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions
here.

If you prefer to replace it though, I would suggest doing Google searches to try to find 240V microwave ovens. They're the exception.

If the microwave side is not cooking, it may be the magnetron has died, if so, it may be expensive to repair and you may have to consider another purchase.
