Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven

Sca2001bss03-Advantium oven-built 06/2000

Black fan button is beginning to malfunction. Can press on, then difficulty turning off or changing speeds. I have to apply different pressures to different points on the button to make it change. Afraid that very soon the button will stay in the "on" position. Also, is their any diagrams/instructional help to get at the brain to work on it. I am electrical savvy, this unit is installed into the cabs above the stovetop....Help please.

    The micro wave portion of the oven made a loud buzzing noise then stopped working. Also the square cover on the right inner side of the oven was arching just prior to failure. The oven is about 8-10 years old. Any suggestions? Thank Dave H.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts (such as "button") by entering your base model number (without the suffix) here: If you find you need control panel repair, we do that nationwide for $39.95 in most cases.

Generlly uWave oven fans have sevealr speeds. They are accomplished with an electronci speed control device in the form of a "Triac." That is a solid-state device that can fail sorted, which means the fan will run continuously on "high." It means the uWave oven needs a new controller, which will be expensive.

We keep getting A MESSAGE "select action 1.0lb quick defrost" which displays every 15 minutes after any function on the Advantium 120 is used.

I surmise there's a short in the Quick Defrost button on the keypad. Either the keypad has collapsed there, or some contamination has gotten in. Another possibility is a failing program memory bit in the controller chip, but a contaminated keypad seems most likely. What happens if you press and hold that button while trying to key in another instruction? Is there any change in behavior?

If this is a GE Advantium series microwave, the control panel can be locked to prevent children from manipulating the controls. To lock or unlock, press and hold the CLEAR/OFF button for 5 seconds. These instructions are included on page 36 of the owner's manual listed here:

Power level

Hi cindeet,

I don't have this particular model, but have experience with other GE stoves & ovens. Looking at the control panel for an Advantium 120 at the link below,

I'd start by pressing the "Power/Temp" button, and then turn the knob to select which power level.

There is also a Help menu shown (upper left corner of the photo I'm looking at - page 4 of the PDF document referenced above.

Let me know how this works for you - thanks in-advance.
