Question about GE Advantium SCA2001BSS Microwave Oven
I came home from a storm that had my power out for a few hours while I was at work. The Advantium was flashing crazy stuff on the display and it would not work at all. I unplugged it over night and when I plugged it in the next day it did the same thing. Continuously flashes a bunch of symbols that don't make any sense over the display and still doesn't work. Has anyone ever had this happen? Its less than a year old...and was put in by the builder in our new home.
Any ideas on how to fix or how to avoid in the future?
This is likely caused by a momentary surge from a distant lightning strike.
Take a look at some of these surge arresters:
Also, your local utility may have them available for lease for a modest fee.
Most of these devices come with an insurance policy that would have replaced your microwave if it had still been damaged.
If I was building homes in our lightning-prone area, I would always suggest the installation of one of these.
