Question about GE Advantium SCA2001BSS Microwave Oven

1 Answer

No power Hi. I have a SCA2000BCC 02 from April 2000. It has been working fine. Used it to heat something for dinner last night, and all was well. After I took the veggies out, I shut the door and now there is no power. I checked the breakers and the plug, and that all seems to be fine. What do I check next?

    I cooked a pizza and after checking it at the signaled time, I closed the door to restart it and all power was lost. I tried the breaker and even tried a different outlet(dryer outlet is the same) and there's no power to the appliance.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

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

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Ufortunately the magnetron is the most likely problem, "heats food" and is the heart of the microwave oven. If the device is five years old or more cheaper to replace the item.

check the wall socket to make sure you have electricity to the plug. Secondly then check to see of the appliance "fuse" has blown, simple repair. If not, you have a costly serious issue.

ALL FEATURES WORK FINE; HOWEVER, LAST NIGHT THE IT STOPPED HEATING THANKS, DAN


first if no power check the internal ceramic safety fuse, then check the H.V. diode for front to back resistance(hi one way-low in the opposite direction),then check your H.V. capacitor for being open(if its shorted it will blow the internal fuse), starts with some resistance on up to no resistance(carefully discharge the cap before doing any of these checks),these are your most likely suspect components if you have some power,but no cooking

Sanyo microwave EMS667W, diff high power ratings


A couple of things: If the dinner is in an aluminum pan, DON'T put it in your oven. Typically, high power units need about 3-5 minutes to heat a dinner so you should have heated it through. The power default is usually full power. Usually, there is a minutes button that should give you incremental minutes for programming.

Try using a standard nonmetallic cup (beaker) and fill it with water. Heat for 2 minutes. The water should be boiling hot. If not, your oven is not doing it right.

Kenmore Microwave Hood Combination: over the stove Model #721.80602500


Disclaimer: I'm a DIYer, not a technician.

Our GE over-the-range microwave stopped producing heat yesterday while warming part of the T-giving feast. Everything else (fan, control panel, light) works fine.

After disassembly and testing last night, I discovered a defective "secondary door switch." Your Kenmore uses a similar switch (~$19 on-line), and that might be the problem. But it also could be other things, such as a bad thermal cut-out.

If you know anyone who's handy with a multimeter, most of the basic diagnostics seem to be pretty straightforward.
