Question about GE Advantium 120 Convection/Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Advantium 120 (Display Pad is not Illuminated or Working)

Hi. Our Adv 120 came with our new house. It is less than six months old. Two days ago the display pad stopped working. It is not illuminated. However, the options below the display pad will illuminate when we make a selection on the microwave keypad. For example, if we select 'Cook' both 'Oven' and 'Turn Dial' will illuminate with the latter flashing as well. Since the display pad is not illuminated we are not able to select additional options by turning the dial.

We have powered the unit off using the circuit breaker with no change.

Thanks!

Our Advantium 120 oven (model # SCA1001KSS 02, Manufactured June 2008)is not working. Began w/ time not coming on when cooking and just a little green microwave light shows while cooking.


Typical of a control microchip failure caused by a power surge. With a microwave as old as yours, it is safest to simply replace the entire oven rather than attempt to fix it, as older magnetrons are likely to fail.

How to change nightlight bulb on ge advantium 120 oven


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.

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.

    How long does it run before it fails? Does it look like the display is getting scrambled characters? I'm leaning toward a bad magnetron, but it may be more or less than that. If you can give more details and especially the actual full model number (as opposed to the model name Advantium 120) that would help. Thanks!

    Does not work after speedcooking bacon.


    Most repair warranties are only 30-90 days, but you might consider asking the servicer if they'll cover it. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your actual model number (like SCA1000DBB03, not Advantium 120) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 That part is the thermal cutout (TCO) or thermal fuse. It's reference number 1430 on the first diagram listed there.
