Re: Advantium 120 Complete black out
Since you've already checked the fuses, my next suspects would be the thermal cutouts (or thermostats or thermal fuses, depending on your exact model number).
One would be located on the right side of the chassis right above the magnetron.
The other would be located on the left side of the chassis. It's the flame sensor.

Advantium 120 is not actually the model number - you have to look on the tag around the door or inside the cavity for that.
If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Considering the possibility that replacement of the switches & thermostat may not solve the problem, I would likely look into replacement. Unfortunately, microwave repair parts are expensive and non-returnable.
http://www.repairfaq.org/sam/micfaq.htm has a section on this decision.
Also, broken units still have some resale value.
We have the same oven and we use glass cleaner and soft scrub cleanser. If the glass on the top of the oven (where the cooking light is located) is really dirty from splatter, you can use a razor blade scrapper. This is the same type of scraper you would use to clean paint of a window. Our Advantium actually came with a scraper from the factory.
I would first suspect the primary interlock (top door switch) or maybe that switch's mount is loose or broken.
or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening
door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
We have the service manual and have uploaded it here to help you.
our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical
over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes. If you only need a
switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.
happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful
