Door hard to open on GE Advantium

The door is very tight, and difficult to open. I should have called within the year it was under warranty but I thought it would losen up. Any suggestions?

    It does not seem to be scraping but as if there is suction pulling against you when you try to open the door. Same with closing in that it's rather loud because of the resistance.

    Does it seem like the edge of the door is scraping against the control panel frame?

    If so, the hinges may be out of alignment.

    When you try to open the door, does it feel like it's scraping or like it's sticky, as if there were grease in the door latch openings?

That's odd.

I think you're just going to have to examine it while opening and closing the door.

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

That can help. Good luck.

It sounds like the hinges are worn out or broken. Probably cheaper to buy a new one that to fix the old one.

Advantium - Interior Light Operation While Microwaving

The Advantium 240 oven interior (cavity) light will illuminate anytime the door is open. However, due to the dark tint on the oven door, there is not a light on while cooking since the food would not be visible using the interior lamp.
Food may be viewed during a microwave cycle by pressing the Microwave/Oven Light pad.

One of the Upper Level Speedcook lamps will come on for 5 seconds. The Microwave/Oven Light pad can be pressed up to 5 times during a microwave cooking cycle. The limit of 5 times is to prevent excessive heat on microwave cookware from the Speedcook lamp.

The Advantium 120 oven cavity is illuminated anytime the door is opened and while the unit is in the microwave only mode. As a result it will not have the Microwave/Oven Light pad.

If the light is not operating properly, you will want to have it checked by an authorized service technician. To obtain in or out of warranty repair on Major Appliances, you may call 1-800-GE-CARES (800-432-2737) or schedule service online.

Hi, my problem is with my GE advantium speedcook microwave oven. When using 'speedcook' feature, the oven starts, then there is sparking inside the circuit board area, followed by a loud POP, and this...


  • Select the "Options" menu and adjust the clock display settings if the display is blank. Set the clock if the oven won't start. The clock must be set for the oven to work properly, as oven programming is dependent on the clock.
  • Close the door tightly if the oven won't start. The oven won't start if the door isn't closed. You can identify from the lights whether the oven failing to start is related to the door or to the power supply. If the control panel is illuminated and interior lights are on when you open the oven door, you can be sure the oven is receiving power and any starting problems are due to the door not being closed tightly.
  • Press and hold the "Clear/Off" button if the oven performs strangely. Be sure to hold it for a few seconds. This will reset the GE Advantium.
    But as you mentioned that there is /was a loud noise this is a indication of the unit make any usual noise (groaning, gurgling, etc.?) or was / is it either louder or quieter than normal?It may be as simple as the top door switch or its mount or it may be a bad magnetron or shorted diode.

    Need assistance with a ge profile repair microwave not working- newer appliance


    Is it still under warranty? If so, take advantage of it. If you are on your own, does it have power (light comes ON when door opened)? Open the case, (power plug out) and look for a blown fuse. The fuse will pop when there is trouble in the HV system for the magnetron--usually a shorted HV diode or shorted stirrer fan bearing which is located within the waveguide that is located just over the cooking cavity. If the fuse is good, check the door interlock switch near the door latch mechanism. It may be a faulty micro-switch, loose switch, or damaged actuator.

    GE Advantium Microwave section doesn't work.


    The primary interlock switch on my Advantium has failed twice. The replacement part is available at: appliancepartspros.com part no. for my Advantium was AP2622452 and it cost $11.74 + $6.95 shipping.

    For what it's worth, my nylon connector and wire covering were also scorched a bit but the last primary interlock switch lasted me for over a year.

    Please note that I am not an expert at repairing appliances and that I assume no responsibility or liability for any attempt you may make to repair your own appliance.

    Interior light always on Ge advantium 120


    I bet by now your microwave is no longer working....did the bottom or top "hook" finally break off? I found that mine had cracked and started coming loose and so when it closed it was no placing enough pressure on the internal safety switch that tells the oven the door is shut. I was able to use a sturdy plastic glue to solve the problem but finally after about 2 years of fixing it I can no longer get it to bond. Now, I'm looking for a new part. Who makes a product this expensive with plastic parts!!?!??!?!? So frustrating.
