I've got a GE Advantium 120/Model ZCS1001KSS01, the display will get lines thru it, and comes in and out of view, and will always finish its cycle. however, when you go back to use, it is dead.

The problem with your Display of your GE Microwave/Speedcooker is not the Digitron WB27X10856 display board? The flickering and ultimately failure over of the display is due to the WB27X10861 GE microwave control board which is a rebranded (LG 6871W1A417/6871W1A417A board) which GE then sells as a markup. The princple purpose of this board is to convert (i.e. rectify) AC to DC at various voltage levels needed by the rest of the microwave to run their control circuits in the microwave. A portion of the GE microwave is always on so the AC/DC supplly is always on. Overtime the electrolytic capacitors in a section of the board fail or degrade to a point they the DC suppy starts to produce ripples in the DC power supply which results in circuit board failures. These ripples produce deep spikes of voltage of 120 Hz that the other circuits are sensitive too. I just exmined a failed WB27X10861 board and measued the capacitance of each of the seven electroylic capacitors. Of the 7 capacitors, 2 had failed over time. The others 5 have degraded 10 to 15 percent but still within their design spec. The two that failed, C07 - 1000uF 25 V had a measured value of 207uF and the other C08 - 220uF had a measured value of 13uF. There was no visible bloating on either SAMWHA SG capacitor. Nomally, these capacitors are rated at 2000 hour at 85 degree C. 2000 hr is only 83 days, but since the voltage is less and the temperature is probably 40 to 50 degrees inside the capacitor these capacitors may last 10 years. They harder they work the shorter the lifespan. There are two solutions, either purchase a new replacement control board or replace the failed C07 and C08 capacitors within the failed board with better ones. You can easily buy 10,000 hour , 105 degree C rated capacitors for probably 25 cents more than 2,000 hour capacitor. Most people don't have the resouces to repair a board so buying a new board is their only solution. Don't buy a used board on ebay because a used board is probably on the verge of failure.

Can the GE 3-in-1 Countertop microwave be installed inside a cabinet?

No, because it is an Air Fryer and Broiler as well. It would generate too much heat and no where for it it escape. You would need to use it on a counter as described or buy an over the range model.

Can you just repair GE door switch

No Microwave Oven are just too dangerous. The switches and interlocks have to be correctly aligned for safety. Plus the inside has heart stopping voltage waiting to jump to anyone with a half inch away! https://www.fixya.com/support/r29874712-repairing_microwave_ovens ..

Burn mark on plastic film of microwave door, can I patch with peel and stick plastic? GE MODEL JVM3670SK06

I would not risk it. Your better finding out why there is a burn mark there. The plastic film with the burn mark will be a specific one for microwave ovens. Basic peel and stick plastics could be the wrong type and it could also melt when the microwave gets hot.

GE Microwave Model JVM1752SP2SS shuts off after use. Has to be re-booted.

That issue sounds like it it likely to be the control board, or maybe a bad connection to it or a dry joint. https://www.fixya.com/support/r29874712-repairing_microwave_ovens ..

My GE space maker model JVM240BL001 the power is on the digital display reads Enter NORM SOUND 2

Hello, friend! It is noteworthy that if the GE Spacemaker microwave model JVM240BL001 is displaying "Enter NORM SOUND 2" on the digital display, it indicates that the microwave is in the programming mode for adjusting the sound level. To exit this mode and return to normal operation, you can try the following steps:
  1. Press the "Clear" or "Cancel" button. This should clear the programming mode and bring the microwave back to its normal state.
  2. If pressing the "Clear" or "Cancel" button doesn't work, you can try unplugging the microwave from the power outlet for about a minute. Then plug it back in and see if it resets the display.
  3. If the issue persists, consult the user manual for your specific model. The manual may provide additional instructions or troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue.

Ge Cafe Over the Range Microwave touch pad stopped making beeping sounds

If the touchpad on your GE Cafe over-the-range microwave has stopped making beeping sounds, there could be a few potential causes. Here are a few troubleshooting steps you can try:
  1. Check the volume settings: It's possible that the volume settings on your microwave have been accidentally turned off or lowered. Look for a "Volume" or "Sound" button on your microwave and adjust the settings as needed.
  2. Check for a mute function: Some GE microwaves have a "Mute" button that allows you to silence the beeps temporarily. Make sure this feature hasn't been activated.
  3. Power cycle the microwave: Turn off the power to your microwave for a few minutes, then turn it back on. This can sometimes reset the touchpad and restore functionality.
  4. Check for error codes: If there's a problem with the microwave, it may display an error code on the control panel. Look in your user manual or search online for information on what the code means and how to resolve it.
  5. Call for service: If none of these steps work, there may be a problem with the touchpad itself. Contact GE customer service or a professional appliance repair technician for assistance.

GE profile advantium 120 display out, no operation but turntable runs when closed

Check for continuity across temperature cut out switches. Sometimes the connector (shovel plug) is defective. Next is the printed circuit board: (1) Look for bad solder joints and (2) check the MGT relay. It is on the PCB and has 2 shovel plugs on the top."closing door, flickered when checking the door switches" = Loose connection somewhere.
