In Topic: Dead GE Advantium Microwave Solution, Thermal Cutoff Fuse

15 July 2012 - 06:39 PM

Thank you for clarification Bill.

I shoulda disassembled more b4 talkin. Bimetallic disk is there shure enough, to push on the purple stick.

Any ideas on why I was burning to a crisp so many door switches? I have seen some pretty impressive videos of arcing coming from the advantium magnetron and that one switch is pretty close to the magnetron.

Ideas or experience in this area??

Thanks for reply.

Advantium became UNDEAD when I replaced the thermal cutoff fuse at bottom center behind control panel. It was completely open. See the cool Ninja quality photos I posted of the solution. Hope they are hopeful to many.

BUT, do you have any idea why the door safety cutoff switch was being burned LITERALLY to a crisp?? Havent figured that one out yet.

Could it be the big capacitor?? What should the capacitor test out to??
